Annie Hall

Dir: Woody Allen, 1977 (9.2*)

Best Picture (AA, GG)
AFI Top 100
The Woodman scored big with Annie Hall: Oscars for Picture, Director, Screenplay, and a Best Actress for then girlfriend Diane Keaton (sister of Michael, great-niece of Buster). Keaton created a character for the ages, a daffy but lovable nerd, just the right woman for Woody. There are some memorably funny Allen scenes of visual humor (spider killers), and intellectual humor, when someone they're arguing about in a film line (Marshall McLuhan) steps out to back up their argument with strangers in front of them. Others in the film include Christopher Walken, Jeff Goldblum, Colleen Dewhurst, Carol Kane, former gf Janet Margolin (she was in Woody's first films). One of the more likeable romantic comedies ever filmed. 4 Oscars

This is our new template: ProBlogger.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
