With the Oscars just around the corner, Film Threat writers review films at a time when the Best Picture it was actually a Best Picture.
Whether you care or not Woody Allen (proverbial monster debate against artist), no argument Annie Hall holds a place in film history. The film was a directed and written by Allen and the Allen stars and Diane Keaton. Wins four out of five Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Director, Original Play, and Actress at 50th Academy Awards in 1978 (wins) Star wars), is still one of Allen and Keaton’s major films.
Allen plays Alvy Singer, a two – time Jewish comedian who lives in Manhattan, who can’t deal with death, sex, anti – Semitism, and his neuroses. However, things change when Alvy meets Annie Hall (Diane Keaton) through his best friend Rob (Tony Roberts) after playing doubles tennis. Driving carelessly in the adjustable Volkswagen beast through New York City embarks on a journey of mental destruction, laughter, uplift and decline, and psychoanalysis. The filmmaker is also expressing his love for New York City and the endless conflict with Los Angeles. The regular references to “New York, Jewish, Left, Liberal, Intellectual” may be polarizing, but it’s funny here. In the end, none of that matters because it is just love, in all its forms.
“…things change when Alvy meets Annie HallAfter playing doubles… ”
Alvy is a working comedian. He uses the Groucho Marx line, “I would never be involved with a club that I was a member of.” He also says, “I do not want to move to a city where the only cultural benefit is being able to turn right on a red light.” Allen’s hilarious narrative and background on growing up as a Jew in the Big Apple live under a roller coaster with timeless verbal family members. These moments of desire move the narrative forward and are just one piece of good screenwriting between Allen and co – writer Marshall Brickman. The perpetual craftsmanship of this love story is the reason why it continues to top film lists for years to come. The reflection of the story is on our most important friendships and everything is real.
Annie Hall provides a unique moment that is important for a changing culture and new thinking on recreational drug use and portrays one woman doing it on her own. Anna is a very independent, spaz, and imperfect soul – like all of us. Not only has she created a fashion trend with life outside the film with her tie, baggy clothes, and hat, she has relationships on her terms even though she is scared of the spider in the movie. bathtub. Allen’s ability to use NYC and LA as characters is a statement of change, from the feel and brain of New York City, which Alvy enjoys, to sunny and brutal Los Angeles, which Annie embraces as a person. free thinking. She is willing to change as long as Alvy can and does not, or cannot.
