The A.V. Club’s Woody Allen Primer

I’m a huge Woody Allen fan and believe that – as with the films of Wes Anderson, the records of Sonic Youth, the books of Dennis Johnson – even his less successful work is far better than most people’s best.

The Onion’s A.V. Club has a really great overview of the oeuvre (oeuvreview? Sorry, couldn’t resist).

Great line about Annie Hall:

Annie Hall is to romantic comedies as Halloween is to slasher films—a great achievement that spawned a lot of bad movies.

My wife turned to me after her dance recital tonight, which took place in a church, and said – doing a perfect Diane Wiest in Bullets over Broadway – “This church…this theater.”
