    now. what a beautifully shot film. right up there with "annie hall" as my fave woody allen flick. meryl streep at her most breathtakingly beautiful, imho.

    Wonderful movie, but not as good as 'Annie Hall.'

    It ranks as number 4 on my Woody Allen list.

    i assume "annie hall" is no. 1, 2, or 3. what are your other 2?

    "Annie Hall" would be an easy number one for me. Beyond that it's a tossup with "Manhattan," "Radio Days" and "Purple Rose of Cairo." But probably "Manhattan" second.

    "Zelig" and "Stardust Memories" are right up there for me, too. "Forrest Gump" is what "Zelig" would be if "Zelig" sucked.

    Very close between Annie Hall and Crimes and Misdemeanors for No. 1. Hannah and Her Sisters edges out Manhattan for No. 3.

    No love for Broadway Danny Rose?

    Also, if you haven't seen it, Celebrity is pretty fun too. It's a lot more recent, all black and white, and has Kenneth Brannaugh doing a DEAD ON Woody Allen as the lead character.

    fwiw, my top 4 would be: "annie hall," "manhattan." "hannah and her sisters," and "radio days."

    but even early films like "take the money and run" and "bananas" hold a special place in my heart. as for films he starred in but did not direct, "play it again, sam" was a sensational romantic comedy and i've always thought "the front" was a powerful film.

    not to threadjack, but in terms of shaping my own sense of humor and persona, woody would be a great example of a celeb who's been influential to me. doesn't hurt that we went to the same high school, either! 8) 8) 8)
