Don't call it a comeback. Dave Moats explains how Woody Allen's much hyped 'return to form' succeeds despite the filmmaker's considerable legacy hanging over the proceedings. Plus The Quietus collects 10 more bizarre love triangles captured on screen.


Chasing Amy

A surprisingly mature and frank look at male insecurity in the face of a sexually experienced woman. Ben Affleck, before he was shit, is a comic book writer who learns that he is not the only man to have slept with his 'lesbian' girlfriend. He incredibly thinks that having a threesome with her and his best friend will repair everything. Answers the age old question: who would win in a race - a man-friendly lesbian, a man-hating dyke, Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny.
