|American auteur Woody Allen explores themes of good and evil in this masterful modern-day morality play. When ophthalmologist Judah Rosenthal (Martin Landau, in an Oscar-nominated role) is threatened with ruin by his mistress if he doesn't marry her, he considers the ultimate solution to his problem: murder. Meanwhile, documentary filmmaker Clifford Stern (Woody Allen), is faced with another moral dilemma: selling out. Allen compares the choices both men make, using a double story line to brilliantly pair sharp comedy with harrowing drama.
