Woody Allen United States, 1977

ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film Annie Hall

I don't hate it, but I was also greatly annoyed by it. It just feels like Allen took his different icons and tosses their quotes left, right and center to have some dept. I just don't think this narcissistic pain in the neck is funny. Then there are the scenes that feel cheap. Am I supposed to laugh at a guy who's suicidal? If so, then give that joke a point by adding context. The couple also feels like a weak joke.
