This review is from: Annie Hall [DVD]  (DVD)
A close friend of mine recently showed me this film, which I knew NOTHING about. I literally mean NOTHING!
I wasn't really a woody Allen fan, (that'll get me a few negative points, oh well!) and i'd only seen a couple of his films and enjoyed them BUT didn't get the hype (is that the right word?) about how he is regarded by some as the greatest director ever. However, all I can say now is ...
Where has this film been all my life? It's older than I am! Why hasn't someone shown this to me earlier? Shame on you planet earth for keeping this quiet.
I haven't got any interesting factoids or snippets of info about the film, but there are plenty of reviewers on here who can do that job better than I can, however, if you have seen this film why haven't you bought it yet. If you haven't seen it, buy it. If you know someone who hasn't seen it, buy it for them. You'll have a friend for life.
I cannot stress how much I love this film, it's so refreshing and sharp and on the money, despite it's age. The use of imagery is used to hilarious effect. I don't want to spoil anything, so i'll just say that a couple of my favourite scenes are to do with dodgems, and indulgent film makers, and give a knowing nod and a wink.
I get it now but i've got some catching up to do.
Next stop Manhattan.
