Woody Allen documentary

In an excerpt from this week’s Guardian Film Show, Catherine Shoard, Peter Bradshaw and Henry Barnes review Robert Weide’s documentary about the life and film-making career of Woody Allen.  Philip French’s asks in his review in The Guardian if “any instrument since Shakespeare’s quill been the conduit of more pleasure to mankind?…. Like his hero Ingmar Bergman, Allen’s style has developed steadily through distinct periods dominated by a succession of female muses”.  French concludes that it is not a film to be missed.

Mike Hale at The New York Times advice us to watch “Woody Allen” and then go back to the movies, to see what all the fuss was really about. I think that sounds like a great idea.
