adventures in movieland

I think Woody Allen has been reading Theodore Dreiser. Match Point = Dreiser's American Tragedy, only set in England and with slight variations. [spoiler alert] Social climber from the lower class, religious family, becomes successful in business, marries well, has an affair which leads to a pregnancy for which the obvious solution is murder. Oh well. I guess all stories are stolen. At least this stolen story features Scarlett Johanssen. Meanwhile, American Tragedy was one of my favorite books... maybe I'll read it again.
