Here’s the Scoop: Busan Cinematheque to Screen One of Woody Allen’s Lesser Works

Directed by: Woody Allen

Starring: Scarlett Johansson, Hugh Jackman

Where: Busan Cinematheque

When: Sunday June 19 at 13:00

This is a film by Woody Allen. I don’t like films by Woody Allen. I just wanted to make that clear before I went on to discuss “Scoop,” one of his more recent pictures playing at the Busan Cinematheque this weekend. I saw Scoop on the airplane, and in that context I suppose I appreciated it, if for no other reason than it helped pass the time on an excruciatingly uncomfortable long haul flight. But much like Allen’s other recent work, it’s trite and forgettable, and according to many of his own fans, a gross misrepresentation of the beloved writer-director.
