VENICE REPORT: SHE'S FUNNY THAT WAY


It could come as a surprise to some that Peter Bogdanovich is back with a new film- it did to me when I read the Venice lineup. But it's less of a surprise to read that it's a bit of a turkey, reportedly. Plenty of critics have seen his comeback, his first film in over a decade, but few have actually liked it. Here's the evidence: reviews from Michael Roddy at Reuters, Peter Bradshaw at The Guardian, Jo-Ann Titmarsh at HeyUGuys, Guy Lodge at Variety, Jessica Kiang at The Playlist, Catherine Bray at In Contention, David Sexton at Evening Standard, David Rooney at The Hollywood Reporter and Geoffrey MacNab at The Independent.
