Movie Mini-Review: Annie Hall (1977)

The best Woody Allen movie I ever saw.  It’s so picture perfect, that if you ever saw it with little information, you might guess that it is a period movie about love in the 70s, filmed and produced this year.  It’s got better quality that half (or more, really) of the movies out in theaters today.

If you’re ever a girl and you’ve touched a man like Woody Allen profoundly well enough to inspire a movie like Annie Hall, you’re one lucky person.  If you’re Diane Keaton and you’ve immortalized yourself in your 30s by playing a lead character like Annie Hall, you’re one lucky person.

That is not to say that the movie is anything above the great misfortune of the 70s that is Woody Allen’s love life, shown in a brighter light because he likes misery served with comedy.  It is nothing more than a celebration of Woody Allen’s cynical take on romance, sure, but to be a part of it, whether as the object of his unrequited affection, or as the actress playing the part, there is nothing in the world that would make a woman prouder.

Here’s one quote that makes the mark of Woody Allen’s sharp tongue, still pretty much true today:

[In California]
Annie Hall: It’s so clean out here.
Alvy Singer: That’s because they don’t throw their garbage away, they turn it into television shows.
