Café Society (2016, Woody Allen)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Aug 8, 2016

Woody Allen opens Café Society himself, with a voiceover. It’s a deeper voice mix than usual for Allen–who doesn’t appear in the film–and even though he’s doing expository narration, there’s an intentional distance in that deeper voice. Allen’s not the star read more

Cafe Society: Woody Allen Channels Billy Wilder

A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Aug 5, 2016

Warning! Spoilers ahead. There I was, blissfully enjoying “Café Society,” Woody Allen’s latest film, on its own merits. The setting of Hollywood in the golden 1930s was a home run for me and the characters and plot were pure Woody – whose work I always enjoy. So, imagi read more

Cattin’ Around With Peter Sellers, Peter O’Toole, And Woody Allen – What’s New Pussycat? (1965)

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on May 1, 2015

A quick hit of Google shows the word “farce” defined as “a comic dramatic work using buffoonery and horseplay and typically including crude characterization and ludicrously improbable situations”, and I can think of no more apt description of 1965’s What’s New Pus read more

Men of Crisis: The Harvey Wallinger Story (1971, Woody Allen)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Aug 19, 2014

Men of Crisis: The Harvey Wallinger Story recounts the rise to power of one Harvey Wallinger, friend and aide to Richard M. Nixon. Wallinger is one part buffoon, one part creep, one part sex addict–Allen revels in the part. He opens the short with a recounting of the 1968 election with some c read more

Seeing New York from the Outside: Woody Allen, THE GREAT GATSBY, and ON THE TOWN

Virtual Virago Posted by Jennifer Garlen on May 14, 2013

I've had New York on my mind quite a bit lately. It started, I think, with a viewing of Woody Allen's Manhattan (1979), a movie in which the protagonist is more in love with the city than he is with any of the women in his life. Shot in black-and-white, the picture idealizes New York scenery (set ag read more

Woody Allen: In Acting Only

Pretty Clever Films Posted by Wade Sheeler on Mar 26, 2013

The Front plays on TCM Thursday, March 28th. If you play “What if” games, as I do, of nonsensical alter-realities, you find yourself asking questions you can never really now the answer to, but still intrigue yourself to no end. What would music be like today if Buddy Holly didn’t die in that read more

Happy Birthday, Woody Allen!

Cinemaniac Reviews Posted by Alexander Diminiano on Dec 1, 2012

Some love him, some hate him. I think he’s the greatest comedian to set foot on this earth. And today, he celebrates his seventy-seventh birthday. Holding the most Academy Award nominations as a screenwriter, Woody Allen is a prolific (and psychotic) genius. Let’s run through his exten read more

Manhattan (1979, Woody Allen)

The Stop Button Posted by on Apr 27, 2012

Every shot in Manhattan, whether of the cityscape, the interiors or the actors, is so carefully and beautifully composed, it’s not surprising Allen lets the cast go a little loose. Gordon Willis’s black and white photography is luminous, giving the city an otherworldly, dreamlike feel. That feeling read more

Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989, Woody Allen)

The Stop Button Posted by on Apr 25, 2012

Crimes and Misdemeanors is not a particularly nice film. It juxtaposes two men in crisis–Martin Landau’s successful ophthalmologist has a girlfriend (Angelica Huston) who is threatening to tell his wife and Woody Allen’s failing filmmaker is crushing on the producer (Mia Farrow) o read more

Top films of Woody Allen by LMdC

Le Mot du Cinephiliaque Posted by Michael on Nov 30, 2011

On the eve of Allen's 75th birthday, I've decided to honour the man with a Top of his films and a modest presentation of the second to best filmmaker of New York city, the first being the great Martin Scorsese. In the beginning of his career, Allen was a stand-up comedian with punched one-liners lik read more

Woody Allen Blogathon–WHAT’S UP TIGER LILY?

Backlots Posted by Lara on May 20, 2011

For my second installment in the Woody Allen blogathon, I am going to profile one of my all-time favorites–Allen’s first directed film, What’s Up, Tiger Lily? After the success of his script What’s New, Pussycat the previous year, Allen was ready to try his hand at directi read more

Woody Allen Blogathon–Annie Hall

Backlots Posted by Lara on May 18, 2011

And so starts Annie Hall, Woody Allen’s classic examination of love in the modern world. I consider this to be his masterpiece–a very funny, smart, and often poignant look at modern relationships, from the perspective of a neurotic New Yorker. This movie has been a part of my life for read more

Take the Money and Run (1969, Woody Allen)

The Stop Button Posted by on Mar 16, 2009

Take the Money and Run kind of dangles on a line. It’s occasionally a screwball comedy–something the Marx Brothers would have done–and alternately a thought-out spoof of documentaries. The breeze moves the film’s direction and it’s hard to know where it’ll go nex read more
