Dr. Herbert Manhattan

March 6, 2009

What if Woody Allen had directed Watchmen?

Allen sets his romantic comedy on the Upper West Side, where wealthy dermatologist Dr. Herbert Manhattan (Allen) suffers a freak accident with his dermabrasion machine. How will his blue skin and omnipotence affect his relationship with beautiful but scatterbrained silk importer Laurie Juspeczyk (Scarlett Johansson)?

Slate have done quite a few Watchmen articles over the past few days, this is definitely my favourite though – reimagining Watchmen as directed by Woody Allen, Judd Apatow, Quentin Tarantino, Tyler Perry, Sofia Coppola and Pedro Almodóvar.
