When Woody wasn't a self-parody,
This review is from: Manhattan [DVD]  (DVD)
I watched 'To Rome with Love' at the cineman recently and as soon as Woody started talking, I cringed. What has happened to him? It seems like he's incapable of writing any other kind of version of himself. As for the film, it was okay, but didn't have much to say.
Manhattan is the opposite of that. It has something to say. Or maybe Woody has always had the same thing to say and just decided to keep saying it over and over. I love the way Woody is so changeable in Manhattan, as are Diane Keaton and his best friend. Their feelings keep changing and they have to try and keep up and figure out what they really want, if anything. Even at the end, you don't know if Woody will wait those six months. My guess is no, he won't.
