Match Point (2005)

Woody Allen presents us with a moral tale of deception, but deception of one's self. The question is "are we to experience guilt if we are never caught?" There are a variety of sins that the protagonist commits and he rejects the notion of responsibility in all of them. A Dostoyevsky novel can be seen on a coffee table in one scene showing the primacy of the guilt issue.

The story is very compelling. The acting is superb. The dialogue is unusually subdued for an Allen film, suggesting he heavily edited himself, which for me makes the film even better: distilled greatness.
