With the three directors being Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola & Woody Allen, you'd expect something pretty spectacular. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Scorsese's film was alright. It had some nice stuff, but nothing special. Coppola's film was terrible. I didn't even get it, really. It was strange & quite off-putting. Thankfully, Allen's film was good. It was funny, fun & typically Woody Allen. It's probably not his best work, but it was entertaining & the best of the three by far.

Scorsese's part is good, Woody's is the best by a mile and Coppola's is so embarrassingly bad that I can't believe they left it in the movie. Just a terrible, terrible script by Francis and Sofia. Woody's part was hilarious though, just hope you can get through Coppola's to see it.

Scorsese - 76: Interesting drama featuring a terrific performance from Nolte, but hampered by overdone directorial choices. A fascinating stylistic exercise, but ultimately hollow. Coppola - 38: Irritatingly saccharin and coy fable; borderline unwatchable at times, though Storaro's cinematography is exquisite. Performances are patronising in the worst way. Allen - 94: Hilarious and witty comedy; Woody is wonderful in the lead, Questel a scream in support. Great bit for Kavner as well.

I wish that New York Stories didn't exist so that Woody Allen's Oedipus Wrecks could have been its own feature. It was hilarious. He makes short movies anyways, wouldn't have been that much of a stretch. It single handedly saved New York Stories. Scorsese's and Coppola's were huge bombs. So uninteresting.

84 is for the Scorsese; 70 for the Woody Allen; 20 for the Coppola. I could have averaged them, for a mean score of 58, but that seemed pretty meaningless.

Allen and Scorsese's pieces are decent enough and enjoyable, but oh man, Coppola's is a disaster.

Unfortunately the only short film that is worth a damn is Scorsese's "Life Lessons". Coppola's film "Life Without Zoe" is a bore, and Allen's film has a funny payoff that is true to its "Oedipus Wrecks" name - but the getting there just isn't very funny. As a fan of all three big directors, this is a shame. Scorsese's film is quite good as a portrayal of art and ego.

Allen's story is easily the best for me. Scorsese's ok and Coppola is weak but still worth, in case you wanna see some of Sofia's later leitmotiv starting to be sketched (in a very poor way, though).

The Scorsese story is stimulating and very well done - it's not easy to portray the tortured artist in a sincere way - while the Coppola story is very poor and the Allen story does not fulfil its potential. So, watch the first story and give the other two a miss.

A disappointing effort from all three filmmakers -- they may be masters at making feature films, but not medium-length ones. Scorsese's is well made and features good acting, but ultimately leads nowhere. Coppola's leads even more into nowhere, but does seem to make some playful connection between wealthy women and wealthy girls. Allen's features a fun story, but isn't milked for all its humorous worth, and ends on a thoroughly unsatisfying and inconclusive manner.

Excellent ensemble cast, but two of the three stories here suck pretty badly, the only one that's really worth watching is Woody Allen's, of course.

allen's segment is fine. scorsese's part is huge creep show, which would be totally nixed in the post me-too era. this wouldn't be a loss, since the story sucks anyway. coppola's segment is outright baffling. it's basically an episode out of a nickelodeon show. on a side note, we've no idea how the stories relate to new york, since they could have literally taken place in any major city in the world. a major let down in most regards.

Coppola's segment is pretty excruciating. I had heard about it but I still wasn't prepared for it. It sucks to say, but I think as a whole this movie might've been elevated if Coppola's segment wasn't included.

3 büyük yönetmenden ilginç öyküler. Martin Scorsese'den azgın teke halleri. Francis Ford Coppola'da zengin sosyete çocuğu olmak. Woody Allen'da anam garip anam. 3 sade öykü. Kafa dağıtmaca.

three short films walk into a bar, the first is a forgettable tale about a scumbag artist; the second is a disney channel show but somehow worse; the third is a hilarious story about the son of an overbearing jewish mother. what do they all have in common? they're all wondering what the hell they're doing on the same feature film. 46 for Scorsese, 8 for Coppola, 80 for Allen.

Life Lessons= Very well directed by Scorsese, it was nice to look at the art class in New York. ??? Life Without Zoe= I think Coppola wanted to show us the mother-child relationship with this segment, not good compared to others but above average. ? Oedipus Wrecks= Think film's best segment. Great comedy by Woody. It was interesting to see Woody's mother-son relationship just like Coppola, though Woody's better. He portrayed the Jewish-NY duo beautifully. ?????

Three of the greatest directors of all-time get together and make.... A meh movie that doesn't really say that much about New York as a whole. Scorsese's part is well-acted and beautifully shot, though a little overwrought. Coppola's portion is god awful, the characters are just dreadful. It's colorful though. Allen's section is the best, the only one with a completely constructed story, and ends the film on a strong note. Man, that Coppola section really pulls it down though...

Unsurprisingly, all three segments are well directed, but after Scorsese's nice relationship drama (a wink to Last Tango), the film slumps into Coppola - whose pacey execution of a pointless script is redeemed only by Giancarlo Giannini's presence (though unlisted here, Talia Shire also stars). It then soars again with Woody Allen's hilarious and highly memorable surrealist comedy about the disappearing mother, who is played by a literally celestial Mae ("Betty Boop") Questel.
