A genius and one of my insperations!! cannot tell you how much his films mean to me.
My love life could be encapsulated by a Woody Allen film - the best and the worst of it. It's a sign of growing up.
I don't always like Allen's films, but I always find something in them to take away with me.
Not a great filmmaker anymore---not even a filmmaker, a tourist guide. You know..."so, this is London, and over here we have Barcelona, a lot of spanish people speaking a lot of spanish...but, you know, two american tourists are on their way here. Their names start with V and C---that's all I'm gonna say. And if you look up, you'll see Paris and...well, parisians, but I also happen to know of this american family that is staying there...Lovely, isn't it? And now, if you'll be so kind to follow me over to Rome...not much to see, I'm affraid---not yet...the movie hasn't come out yet. Plus we can't stay long. We have to catch a flight to.....I'm thinking Munich, Germany. I'm thinking american tourists..."
The fatuous remark next to Allen's picture above tells you all you need to know about his artistic devolution from a skilled creator of intelligent comedy (ANNIE HALL, MANHATTAN, LOVE AND DEATH) into a purveyor of self-important dramatic crap (ANOTHER WOMAN, SEPTEMBER, CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS).
I can't put into words how this man led me through high school....My god, he's amazing.
Mancattan - directed by Phil Drinkwater & Colin Warhurst An original funny romantic comedy inspired by two great Cities Manchester and Manhattan and inspired by Woody Allen's unexpected filming style .... MANCATTAN explores, in a comic way, the ups, downs and neuroses of two twenty-somethings completely mystified with what their future purposes in life are meant to be. They jet off to New York to make good on promises they have made to themselves, but in chasing their dream they also realise that they could simply be running away from their problems back home. The characters in the film are obsessed with Woody Allen and therefore the film works as an homage to this great director, and it is deeply inspired by his classic works such as 'Annie Hall' and 'Manhattan.' On this level, Mancattan also serves as a love letter to the filmmaker's home city of Manchester, a place that has deeply influenced their film. The cities of Manchester and Manhattan are the real stars of the film. Watch Screening free 30th July on Dailymotion at http://dai.ly/61mCAG Or Renderyard at http://bit.ly/95ksrk
Allen is amazing! he is absolutely great and every movie that he makes is adding more and more to the story of film making, he has a very special sense of humor, taht is only for the people that follow him and great filmmakers such as Bergman and Fellini, he has even worked with Sven Nykvist, what elese can you ask, Ricardo Gonzalez, Chile, S:A:
