‘Deconstructing Harry’ An Allen Self-Portrait

By The Spokesman-Review
 

More so than ever, filmgoers particularly those in Spokane are split on the appeal of Woody Allen.

“Deconstructing Harry” doesn’t make the choice any easier. Filled with bile toward the media, the legal system, ex-lovers and women in general, it is, nevertheless, one of Allen’s most unsparing self-portraits. And, of course, it is funny. If nothing else, it proves that Kirstie Alley is more than just a one-note sitcom star.
