5.0 out of 5 stars Classic comedy from a master of one line comedy epics, 29 April 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Love And Death [DVD] (DVD)
I first watched this film aged approx 16 I loved it then and love it now. The line I best remember is when he portrays his brother as a raw meat eating thug and then says to the camera..'Don't get me wrong, I love him like a brother...Just not one of mine.'
I discovered Woody Allen in 'Love and Death' and have never kicked the habit. His appearence puts half of humanity off - to me this makes him even more comedic and his strange appearence in this film adds to the laughs..the most unlikely hero. The DVD collection of Woody Allen films is slowly expanding and because of his timeless and clever wit the older Woody Allen films will always be watched.
For those of you who love his asides and often quiet one-liners - try 'Manhattan Murder Mystery' with Woody, Diane Keaton and Alan Alda. Another Allen classic.
Overall this film gets 5 stars based on the film alone. It is a pity there are no real extras..an interview with Woody or some outakes would be great. Then again, Woody has never really been the revealing type. Read 'The unruly life of Woody Allen' by Marion Meade (2000).
The lack of extras is a bit disconcerting considering how much we pay for DVD in this country..but vat least with Woody Allen the film is worth buying for the sheer pleasure of seeing that strange little man perform.
