Is it a film you must see before you die?

Luke: As a film, yes. It’s shot stunningly, and has terrific dialogue/themes, but its plot hits a little too close to home when it comes to Woody Allen’s personal life, and I can’t in good conscience say it’s a film you must see, for whatever that’s worth.
