Pagan Sphinx Entertainment Highlight

I still love Woody.  :-)  Dianne Keaton was kind of terrible but very charming in this flick, wasn't she?

  1. I like him also, I was a little irritated with him for a while but he is very talented. I don't really care about his personal life, that's his business, not mine, he can still make a good movie.

  2. Great film. Must watch it again soon. I think I fell in love with Diane Keaton a little back then.

  3. I loved Annie Hall but overall I have mixed feelings about Woody Allen movies. In general, I tend to prefer the ones that have less of his personal presence and I like the dramas more than the comedies. Crimes and Misdemeanors is probably my favourite but then again I also really liked Broadway Danny Rose and The Purple Rose of Cairo. You really do have to admire his tenacity in keeping complete artistic control over his film work. He insisted on that even when it meant he would never collect huge amounts of money from Hollywood studios.

    Nice choice of clip, Gina.

  4. Yogi - I agree with you. It's said that Picasso was a pretty terrible person to some of his children and that Miles Davis was violent toward his wife. While I abhor those acts, it's not what I think about when I hear the tunes, see the flicks or look at the pictures.

    SB - I can see having a crush on Annie Hall! I sort of did! :-)

    Susan - Hannah and her Sisters is my favorite Allen movie. I like him in his movies, his particular form of neurosis is entirely endearing and so much *him*. I admire him for turning his eccentricities into good entertainment. There are plenty of clunkers among his films, aren't there? :-)

    Did anyone remember the cameo of Marshall Mcluhan? I'd forgotten all about it but I find it ingenious that Woody worked it into the film so well.
