Not one of my favourite actors or directors.

Although I know actors love working for him.

But did enjoy Casino Royale, the comedy one.

W | 39 comments I particularly enjoyed Sleeper,Bananas and Love and Death,all full of sight gags and side-splittingly funny.

I do prefer his earlier stuff

Mara Pemberton (marapem) | 310 comments I am not a fan of Woody Allen, but I did like his movie BANANAS a 1000 years go. I know I will be groused for this but I did not like ANNIE HALL.

Steve J. | 12 comments Manhattan is one of mine (despite the slightly disturbing plotline from the viewpoint of today - aging film director and young student get together).
My other favourite is Hannah and her sisters.

W | 39 comments Manhattan is very good.The slightly disturbing plotline is also there in Hannah and her sisters when a married man falls for his wife's sister.

Kirsten  (kmcripn) | 7903 comments I liked Sleepers. But nowadays I wouldn't watch a Woody Allen film due to his personal behavior.

PamG (lynguy1) | 1413 comments Woody Allen is not one of my favorites. However, I did enjoy Casino Royale from 1967 (spy spoof) and, more recently, Midnight in Paris from 2011 (comedy, romance, fantasy).

Lisa (freyabarrett) Crimes and Misdemeanors was his best work, outside of Hannah and her Sisters and Annie Hall. I love Woody. If we start to judge artists by their lifestyles, the museums and movie theaters would be empty.

Luci (luciskydyme) | 21 comments Midnight in Paris- I liked it because of the portrayal of the historical characters, more than the overall plot.

message 13: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca Amiss (itsawriterfullife) | 478 comments Annie Hall

message 14: by W (new)

W | 39 comments Of the more recent ones,Vicky Christina Barcelona was pretty good.

message 15: by W (new)

W | 39 comments Blue Jasmine was not bad,either.But his later movies,are more serious,and he has made so many of them.Many are very forgettable.A particularly dark one is Match Point,from 2005.

message 16: by David (new)

David Putnam (davidputnam) | 84 comments For the most part I'm not a big Woody fan. I think his humor misses the mark with me. Though, one of the funnies movies I had ever seen when I was young was Everything you always wanted to know about sex. I laughed so hard I fell off the chair.


message 17: by W (new)

W | 39 comments Yes,it had some very funny bits.

message 18: by W (new)

W | 39 comments Just too bad that personal controversy has overshadowed all the great things he has done in cinema.
