I'm not an old hippie (since I'm only 19), and I love his early stuff (though I don't care for most of his films post-Manhattan. Rather than invent, he just seems to remake). You guys are all crazy.

WOODY's slapstick movies have their appeal, but not much to me.  I like his later films much better and I'm not a fan of ANNIE HALL or MANHATTAN particularly, transitional films, however STARDUST MEMORIES is very interesting and perplexing and deep and incidentally, funny!  Then there are so many good films leading up to CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS.

I've never really gotten or cared to get Woody Allen's appeal.  But any man who seduces his stepdaughter is scum in my book.

wait...what???  Question

He adopted a girl when he was with Mia Farrow-and ended up f**king her and marrying her. Sick sorry basterd.

that is quite possibly the most disgusting and repulsing thing ever

Personally, I like much of his work. As a human being, he has unfortunately lived too much of his shtick, growing more neurotic and nutso over time, but he is an outstanding writer and director. I am more a fan of his earlier works, mostly because I love a good one-liner and he was a master of that art form. I get that he isn't for everyone, but I don't understand the hatred of his work based on his bad choices as a person; a lot of brilliant writers/artists lived despicable lives and yet are revered for their work. If you don't find him funny, fine, don't watch his movies. But don't hate his movies ONLY because you think he's an incestuous windbag.

I have never actually 'gotten' what Woody Allen's films are about anyway. The only film that he had anything to do with that I enjoyed was What's New Kitty Cat.

At the risk of coming off as a heathen around here: I will admit I never 'got' the appeal of his work, either.  I'm afraid he just creeps me out - and I am not referring to his personal life; the whole 'nebbish-who-gets-the-girl' schtick does not work for me the way he presents it.

Probably not really important, but Farrow had her before she and Allen were together, and they ended up getting together when Soon-Yi Previn was 21.  I gather they didn't have a father-daughter relationship, so it's only creepy in the "35 year age difference/daughter of an ex-lover" kind of way.  Yeah, only that way.   TongueOut

On another note, my mom saw Mia Farrow speak last year.  Said she was a great speaker.  Someone did ask about Woody Allen.

Paraphrasing here, but she said something like, "I feel a bit better about him now than I used to.  If I saw him get run over in front of me, I'd actually think about calling 911 these days.  Maybe."

As far as Allen's films...  I think Annie Hall is a very good film, and I do think his films can be pretty funny.  But sometimes his attitude kinda bugs me.

I was a huge Woody Allen fan back in the 1970s and 80s.  I haven't kept up with most of his more recent stuff, but I still watch his older movies from time to time.  BROADWAY DANNY ROSE is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen.  Please don't hate on the Wood Man!

Woody Allen is a whiney little f**k-much like me-but I dont f**k or marry my kids.

And he aint funny-bottom line. Old school hippies like him.
f**k hippies.
I got hair down to the middle of my back now.
Call me a hippy motherf**ker-I WILL get p**sed.
I'm a slippy.


And I quoted my self. Groovy. Dam Groovy.



Ronnie,

It's posts like this that make me REALLY wish I could still give you karma.   BounceGiggle

As for Woody Allan...I could take or leave him.  Only seen a few, and they fall into the "I remember seeing them, but little else" category.  I think one cannot argue that from a film history point of view, he's made his mark.

Uh, no double entendre remarks necessary....

Good morning.  Your commentary is ignorant.  Meaning "without knowledge".  It hasn't been "nebbish gets the girl" in at least 30 years... Lookingup   The best parts of WOODY's films are typically not him.  He doesn't appear in many of his films (like PURPLE ROSE OF CAIRO or BULLETS OVER BROADWAY.)  However, as a central character he can work too (DECONSTRUCTING HARRY).  I love you Newt, but STFU.  Wink
