Annie Hall Poster
  • The shiksa-seduction field guide par excellence, ANNIE HALL is so meticulous in the formalities of this particular form of traditional interethnic liaison (tennis dates; going out to depressing art-house documentaries; recommending morbid philosophy at the bookshop) that it can be difficult to determine whether the film originated the technique or merely popularized it.

  • The result is one of film’s great love stories, a funny, tender tribute to one very specific, goofily lovely woman that also speaks to all the loves we’ve ever lost, thanks to a built-in running commentary (including jokes and asides Singer delivers to the camera) on everything from the nature of love to the perils of living too much in your head.

  • A stream-of-consciousness chronicle of the ill-fated relationship between Alvy and Annie (Diane Keaton, sublime), Annie Hall is cheerful and full of learned, urbane wit. Yet an air of melancholy is omnipresent.
