The latest from writer/director Woody Allen is a return to the absurdest formula from his earlier career that crafts a tale of Americans and Italians dealing with love, fame, passion, death, and dreams. Unlike most of the director’s films over the past two decades To Rome with Love is a true ensemble that grabs absurdity with both hands and runs full speed right into a brick wall, producing some glorious insanity and plenty of laughs.

midnight-in-paris-blu-rayThe latest from writer/director Woody Allen stars Owen Wilson as a Hollywood screenwriter and struggling novelist who takes a trip to Paris with his fiance (Rachel McAdams) and her parents (Kurt FullerMimi Kennedy). Although he is in love with the city. Gil (Wilson) feels stifled by his conservative in-laws to-be and lacks patience for his fiance’s friends, most notably the pedantic Paul (Michael Sheen).

Then one night, while wandering through the city, Gil somehow finds himself transported to the Paris of the early 1900’s where he meets a collection of his artist idols including Ernest Hemingway (Corey Stoll) and his wife Zelda (Alison Pill), Gertrude Stein (Kathy Bates), Pablo Picaso (Marcial Di Fonzo Bo), T.S. Elliot (David Lowe), and Cole Porter (Yves Heck). Every night Gil sneaks away, spending time in the Paris of his dreams, discussing art with the greats, and falling more and more for the lovely Adriana (Marion Cotillard).

In his quest to see all 100 of AFI’s list in one year, Trey Hock has found himself at #35, Woody Allen’s “Annie Hall,” a movie that forever changed the way we saw Allen and his other work.

Trey calles it “a perfect blend of genuinely funny mixed with sincere and heartwarming,” and I have to agree as well. If you haven’t seen the movie that beat “Star Wars” for Best Picture, now is a great time to catch up to it.

Besides writing a great article, I love the clips that Trey chose to illustrate how clever and funny this movie is. Even if you have seen the film, watch these again and it will make your day better, I promise.

whatever works larry david wood“Whatever Works,” starring Larry David, opens in limited release this weekend and its the 40th full-length theatrical release from legendary writer/director Woody Allen. I’d say that warrants a look back at some of the movies that may have been written off as lesser works by this prolific independent auteur.

Seen “Annie Hall” and “Manhattan” already and looking for something else to rent? Luckily, longtime Scene-Stealers sitegoer Phil Fava has done all the hard work for you by putting together a fantastic list of the 10 most underrated movies in the Woody Allen filmography.
