Which Woody Allen films should I watch first? As in the greatest ones, not the most accessable ones.
Thanks a lot.
1) Annie Hall
2) Play It Again Sam,
5) Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex
and Love and Death maybe,
but I would say that.
2.Toy Story 2
3.Toy Story - The Video Game
Boy, Woody is a great character, isn't he?
no order.....annie hall, play it again sam, and hannah and her sisters.........none too much of the quick fire zany, physical stuff (although in p.i.a.s there are some really good physical gags with him being nervous around women)........but i think these are his three best, all rounders. the bit at the beginning of p.i.a.s, where he is in the cinema watching casablanca...and the camera is tight on his face, watching his expressions change.......one of my all time top movie moments...beautiful.
3. Husbands & Wives
4. Crimes & Misdemeanors
5. The Purple Rose Of Cairo
And Bullets Over Broadway as an example of his satirical writing...
And Manhattan Murder Mystery as an example of light hearted comedy thriller frippery.
And Hannah & Her Sisters / Deconstructing Harry / Mighty Aphrodite are all watchable.
Unfortunately, pretty much everything outside of these is filler.
