this whole movie relies on woody allen’s self deprecation but you can tell that to this day he thinks he’s the smartest and funniest writer in hollywood and this goddamn movie isn’t even good. that’s all
I’ve seen a lot of movies jack themselves off, some of which I actually quite loved, but this one went full autofellatio. This review isn’t even about the allegations against Woody, I actually went in expecting to love this. I would just genuinely love to hear others thoughts on why it’s considered a masterpiece because I feel like I’m...missing something.
Orson Welles: I hate Woody Allen physically, I dislike that kind of man.
Henry Jaglom: I’ve never understood why. Have you met him?
O.W.: Oh, yes. I can hardly bear to talk to him. He has the Chaplin disease. That particular combination of arrogance and timidity sets my teeth on edge.
H.J.: He’s not arrogant; he’s shy.
O.W.: He is arrogant. Like all people with timid personalities, his arrogance is unlimited. Anybody who speaks quietly and shrivels up in company is unbelievably arrogant. He acts shy, but he’s not. He’s scared. He hates himself, and he loves himself, a very tense situation. It’s people like me who have to carry on and pretend to be modest. To me, it’s the most embarrassing thing in the world—a man who presents himself at his worst to get laughs, in order to free himself from his hang-ups. Everything he does on the screen is therapeutic.
Annie Hall beat Star Wars for best picture. I feel bad, ya know? Annie Hall is a beautiful and wonderful look at romance, told by the brilliant mind of Woody Allen.
And yet, Star Wars fan-boys (including me) hated the film, no matter if they've seen it or not.
Now, I can say without reservations, that I was wrong.
Annie Hall is simply wondrous.
Now, I wouldn't say that I enjoy it better than Star Wars, but Annie Hall is a film that is so accomplished in so many ways.
First off, the performances by Woody Allen and Diane Keaton are excellent, both bringing character and liveliness to their roles. In particular, Woody's character of Alvy Singer is sublimely executed.…
the single only relatable thing about this mental masturbation of a movie is diane keaton's fear of bugs
I liked the part when they were talking to each other and there are subtitles that say what they’re thinking
I was with Woody all the way until he sneezed into the coke.
The two-minute animated sequence within this movie is better than the entirety of Illumination’s filmography.
Genuinely one of the funniest, smartest and most relatable movies ever made, Annie Hall proves to hold up even better upon rewatch as it is easy to notice more amazingly subtle details. It’s a seemingly really simple story turned into one of the most unique comedic experiences ever brought to screen. Allen’s interesting direction allows the movie not feel like a basic romcom. Simple yet effective details such as writing characters’ thoughts out on screen, using split screen when dialogue can overlap, and breaking the fourth wall add such a good element of humor to the movie. Both Woody Allen and especially Diane Keaton deliver…
THIS is the best sci-fi movie of 1977 because Star Wars doesn’t lead you to believe that Diane Keaton is dating Woody Allen
On the surface it’s simple, but when you go deeper you realized that it’s a deeply funny and clever dramatic romcom that has a lot of social commentaries. It’s smart dialogue and amazing lead performances from Diane Keaton and Woody Allen make this movie a lot better than I thought it would be. There are so many little details that are so comedic and smart. I was constantly shocked at how unique a lot of this movie was. Seeing their relationship with was charming and entertaining. The script was extremely comical and worked perfectly well for these actors. It subverted my expectations and I laughed quite a bit.
This beat Star Wars for best picture and ya know what? I’m cool with that!
There are many great directors whose movies I'm ashamed to say I haven't seen and Woody Allen is way up near the top of the list. It's too bad I'm only discovering his work now, but now that I've broken in I'm excited to explore around. Woody Allen has a sort of frenzied neurosis which reminds distinctly me of Charlie Kaufman, and one crucial area where both men succeed is in discussing issues which are close to my heart (emotional alienation here in Annie Hall; creative struggles in Adaptation) in a way which I can actually enjoy (on the other end of things for example Punch-Drunk Love is about problems…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I assume Willem Dafoe disliked how W*ody A*len and Diane Keaton treated the poor lobsters in this film.
To avoid sounding pretentious I just wrote this mediocre joke as a "review" But I find it funny how a simple movie like this has so much charm, wit, and humor. Jokes will be brought up again and again in a different unique light and never overstaying their welcome. I know you are getting tired of hearing my thoughts on this mental masturbation of a film so here's my takes rapid fire, the animated sequence in the film has much better quality than the Addams family (2019) and this was the made in the 70s. The screenplay is so clever, hearing the…
had to turn the volume down when i watched this because i couldnt take woody allen's whining 🥴
“We have a bad habit, encouraged by pedants and sophisticates, of considering happiness as something rather stupid. This is the treason of the artist: the refusal to admit the banality of evil and the terrible boredom of pain.”
- ursula k. leguin, 1973, apparently seeing into the future to write about how woody allen should stop obsessing over his own (unearned) malaise. good movie tho very funny
bueno, no me queda más remedio que basar mi personalidad en esta película
So this was my second attempt to watch a Woody Allen movie after that pile of garbage that was “A rainy day in New York” and I must say that I am not a fan.
First of all Woody Allen has the must punchable face I think I have ever seen in my life.
The film is trying so hard to be funny and doesn’t let it itself breath for a moment; seriously this was more stressful than Uncut Gems.
Woody Allen just talks and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk, bro just relax and think a little. You fucked 3 girls and you still want more and more and you are only thinking about yourself all…
diane keaton murdered this role
“You know what a hostile gesture that is to me?”
“I know, because of our sexual problem, right?”
“Everybody in line at the New Yorker has to know our rate of intercourse?”
The best. I love the rapid fire dialogue more and more.
"Masturbation ist Sex mit einer Person, die man liebt"
The Ending is so sad and yet so true, the ending is life
Halfway through this movie I stopped and wrote 5 pages of dialogue of me and my ex girlfriend arguing. That's the kind of infectious effect this movie has.
First off, I hate Woody Allen. I have to get that out of the way. Otherwise this film is amazing. It hones in on relationships, awkwardness and cynicism in a way that is incredibly unique. It can often be quite self indulgent but that said, I really loved it. Without a doubt one of the best romantic comedy’s i’ve seen.
ps: I hate woody allen (just wanted to clarify) so i rented this from a local video store. if you have to rent it i recommend donating a buck to some sort of charity so your not only supporting woody allen. thanks
one day woody allen will die and i will watch this with peace in my heart
