Movie Reviews:

  • tmdb47633491: Having seen this four or five times now since I was a kid, I can definitively say this is the best Woody Allen introduction for newcomers. Visually it’s his best work (for those who don’t know, the cinematographer Gordon Willis did The Godfather Parts 1 & 2 earlier the same decade, so it’s no surprise). Not as insightful or engrossing as Hannah or Misdemeanors, but the writing’s up there. Mariel Hemingway’s a crown jewel and tears me apart. If you’re a newbie and can watch this before Annie Hall I highly recommend it. It’s aged much better and is _the_ Woody Allen litmus test
