For some reason, I've always loved this film. Woody Allen brings his neurotic persona into the character of Z, and the story is incredibly dark and thought provoking for "kids film." I saw this for the first time when I entered into the school system at 5. It taught me a lot about individualism and thinking outside of the box. An incredibly overlooked movie.
