Woody Allen: A Documentary
Woody Allen: A Documentary

This comprehensive documentary celebrates the remarkable film career of America's premier auteur, comedian and neurotic, Woody Allen.

Spanning over 40 years of filmmaking his distinct voice has evolved from his early days as a gag writer for television to an illustrious film career that goes from strength to strength. Featuring interviews with the elusive Allen and his many collaborators and admirers, the film covers the waterfront for Allen enthusiasts, while offering a comprehensive career overview for the newly initiated.

It's all here, from his earlier 'funny works' like Take the Money and Run and Bananas, to his Oscar winning Annie Hall, Manhattan, Hannah and Her Sisters and most recently Midnight in Paris.

As well as being rapturous love letters to the city of New York, Allen's films wear their obsessions on their sleeves. From his ongoing love affair with jazz, to his homages to film heroes Ingmar Bergman and Federico Fellini, to his quest to find meaning in the absence of god, Allen is a true original.
