The Potential Mechanism. Match Point by Woody Allen
Luigi Porto

This is an analysis of one of the most successful of Woody Allenís recent films, Match Point (2005). It is an investigation into the mechanisms of power categorized as possibility, an energetic and unexpressed charge which controls and compromises all vital mechanisms. Events, bodies, facts and lives are ruled by the immobile mover of fate whose moves can be prefigured and eventually planned by Man, the only one among animals
who has the capacity for abstraction.
