this whole movie relies on woody allen’s self deprecation but you can tell that to this day he thinks he’s the smartest and funniest writer in hollywood and this goddamn movie isn’t even good. that’s all
I’ve seen a lot of movies jack themselves off, some of which I actually quite loved, but this one went full autofellatio. This review isn’t even about the allegations against Woody, I actually went in expecting to love this. I would just genuinely love to hear others thoughts on why it’s considered a masterpiece because I feel like I’m...missing something.
Orson Welles: I hate Woody Allen physically, I dislike that kind of man.
Henry Jaglom: I’ve never understood why. Have you met him?
O.W.: Oh, yes. I can hardly bear to talk to him. He has the Chaplin disease. That particular combination of arrogance and timidity sets my teeth on edge.
H.J.: He’s not arrogant; he’s shy.
O.W.: He is arrogant. Like all people with timid personalities, his arrogance is unlimited. Anybody who speaks quietly and shrivels up in company is unbelievably arrogant. He acts shy, but he’s not. He’s scared. He hates himself, and he loves himself, a very tense situation. It’s people like me who have to carry on and pretend to be modest. To me, it’s the most embarrassing thing in the world—a man who presents himself at his worst to get laughs, in order to free himself from his hang-ups. Everything he does on the screen is therapeutic.
Annie Hall beat Star Wars for best picture. I feel bad, ya know? Annie Hall is a beautiful and wonderful look at romance, told by the brilliant mind of Woody Allen.
And yet, Star Wars fan-boys (including me) hated the film, no matter if they've seen it or not.
Now, I can say without reservations, that I was wrong.
Annie Hall is simply wondrous.
Now, I wouldn't say that I enjoy it better than Star Wars, but Annie Hall is a film that is so accomplished in so many ways.
First off, the performances by Woody Allen and Diane Keaton are excellent, both bringing character and liveliness to their roles. In particular, Woody's character of Alvy Singer is sublimely executed.…
the single only relatable thing about this mental masturbation of a movie is diane keaton's fear of bugs
I liked the part when they were talking to each other and there are subtitles that say what they’re thinking
I was with Woody all the way until he sneezed into the coke.
On the surface it’s simple, but when you go deeper you realized that it’s a deeply funny and clever dramatic romcom that has a lot of social commentaries. It’s smart dialogue and amazing lead performances from Diane Keaton and Woody Allen make this movie a lot better than I thought it would be. There are so many little details that are so comedic and smart. I was constantly shocked at how unique a lot of this movie was. Seeing their relationship with was charming and entertaining. The script was extremely comical and worked perfectly well for these actors. It subverted my expectations and I laughed quite a bit.
This beat Star Wars for best picture and ya know what? I’m cool with that!
There are many great directors whose movies I'm ashamed to say I haven't seen and Woody Allen is way up near the top of the list. It's too bad I'm only discovering his work now, but now that I've broken in I'm excited to explore around. Woody Allen has a sort of frenzied neurosis which reminds distinctly me of Charlie Kaufman, and one crucial area where both men succeed is in discussing issues which are close to my heart (emotional alienation here in Annie Hall; creative struggles in Adaptation) in a way which I can actually enjoy (on the other end of things for example Punch-Drunk Love is about problems…
Hey, don't knock masturbation... it's sex with someone I love!
If relationships had Black Boxes, reviewing one in the aftermath of a failed romance might look something like Annie Hall. Woody Allen and Marshall Brickman originally wrote a murder mystery with a romantic subplot. The subplot, mostly based on Allen's real relationship with co-star Diane Keaton, would take center stage while the murder eventually disappeared from the script. The result is one of the greatest romantic comedies of all time.
Woody Allen plays Alvy Singer, who is essentially just Woody Allen. He has to be the greatest director/writer to get away with using the same main character in almost all his films for close to 50 years now.…
Overflowing with Woody Allen's sense of entitlement and superiority over literally every other human being he comes across whilst believing himself as quirky and unique for his simultaneous self-depreciation ... like ...... this man brings a new meaning to the words Toxic Waste
would it be fair for me to assume that this is probably the only Best Picture winner to use the word "anal" in a sentence
What a self masturbation of woody allen. How dare him to abuse me being an audience? But who am i to complain while there are so many victims of this industry? By looking at this film, one can affirm so many things about him. It shows the sexual inferiority complex of a man who abuses so many young woman.
Previous thoughts on whether you can/should enjoy Allen's films can be seen in my review of mighty aphrodite.
Havent watched in a while, I forgot how well Allen deals with colours.
meu ego imenso adorou se sentir bem menos problemático que esse cara
It's a sort of puzzle - it feels so much "about" a series of things, relationships and neuroticism, New York decay. But there's no real thesis, just a collage of moments an tones, like a Barthelme story maybe?
I did not care for Annie Hall. It insists upon itself Lois.
A really funny comedy, sometimes little raw, sometimes little absurd, but very close to the reality about the couple issues.
eu odeio gostar tanto desse filme.
nem precisei tomar o zolpidem pra dormir
it sucks how all the popular reviews for this film seems to be preoccupied with the reviewers' parasocial relationship to Woody Allen, this film is great
Me incomoda a presunção do Woody Allen como diretor.
tirando a punhetagem de ego absurda é um filme engraçadinho e divertido de se assistir
