    "Manhattan Murder Mystery" finds Woody Allen having a ton of fun with a premise he'd long wanted to film -- a murder mystery set in New York -- and equally enjoying the return of his costar and former lover Diane Keaton, starring in a Woody film again for the first time since the late 70s. The comedic duo play a long-married couple who have settled into routine, only to have their marriage and their lives shaken up by the dawning realization that their next-door neighbor has murdered his wife and seems to be getting away with it. The film is a gentle spoof of the noir genre, with Woody especially referencing "Double Indemnity" and "The Lady From Shanghai." This loving tribute to the 40s noirs of Wilder and Welles culminates in a stunning final sequence that quotes the funhouse finale of "Shanghai" with its multiple mirrors and fragmented screen. The film is a visual stunner, contradicting the common assumption that Woody is a funny man but a limited director. For a light thriller/comedy, this is both hilarious and visually intriguing, utilizing the noir style and references to older films. It's Woody at his best.
