Woody Allen's latest film Irrational man is about the philosophy professor Abe Lucas. Abe is an intelligent but very destructive man with an alcohol problem. At the University of New England, where he teaches, he initiates a relationship with the student Jill while at the same time dating his colleague, Rita. Woody Allen once again retrieves Inspiration from Dostojevskij's Crime and Punishment: Abe has decided to commit the perfect murder after listening in on a conversation. In Upsala Nya Tidning, Björn G. Stenberg writes: "Sure, Allen works a lot with clichés, but he does it well. It’s also a pleasure to keep up with how he interprets the heroes of philosophy and examines the morale of the characters, the spectators and, we must assume, himself."
