Summary: Loved every minute of this and recommend it to anyone who likes or loves woody allen. Almost three hours of clips and interviews it was a real treat to a lover of all things woody. I even watched all the extra features and it was good to look at all the old film clips again. One for the collection. Go on treat yourselves to a viewing...
Summary: Great documentary. Would have to admit in the past I have only limited my viewing to the more comedy type films,but due to the insight provided in this documentary have hired some of his other films which have just fueled my adoration. Super!!! Love Woody even more than i did before.
Summary: Love this genius of this screen and do find myself hanging off his words. This documentary is quietly interesting. It didnt tell me much and I didnt know much about the man. A viewer needs to watch his films to find elements of his biography.
Everything you wanted to know about Woody Allen but were afraid to ask
27 February 2013
Summary: This documentary tells you everything you need to know about Woody Allen. Very entertaining and thorough and you learn a lot more about Woody's life and career than from any of his biographies here. It also gives very rare interviews with Allen himself, old and new and reminds us what a private person he is, like when walking down the streets of New York wearing a hat but still being recognised!
Summary: The Blu-ray version of this film is more than twice the length of the theatrical release which is a great bonus for fans but be warned that this is pretty much a hymn of praise and more critical engagement with Allen's films and or / personal life would have been welcome. I enjoyed the film but mainly for the clips. For a more engrossing study of Woody Allen the man, Wild Man Blues is recommended as a better film (focusing on his love of music rather than film).
