The Press Reviews

  • "Radio Days" is so ambitious and so audacious that it almost defies description. Full Review

  • It's a great idea for a movie, but Allen fatally opts for a Fellini: Amarcord approach of formless narrative, larger-than-life coincidence, and rambling ruminations on what times there used to be. Full Review

  • Although lacking the bite and depth of his best work, Radio Days is one of Woody Allen's most purely entertaining pictures. Full Review

  • Childhood anecdotes and charming vignettes are set against bright-light, big-city sets, a-dazzle with beautiful players. Full Review
