Manohla Dargis of The NYTimes calls Blue Jasmine Woody Allen’s “most sustained, satisfying and resonant film since Match Point.” This makes me want to re-watch Match Point, a film I didn’t care for when it first came out, but which Janet and Sandra both really like.
Since Blue Jasmine opens at Images Cinema this Friday 8/23, and in the spirit of watching and re-watching old Woody Allen films, we recommend you put together your own line-up to whet your appetite for this weekend. Here is a link to his IMDB page to help you get started.
There are lots to choose from– Woody Allen made 5 movies in the 70s and then, excluding 1981, he has made a movie every year since 1980. That’s a lot of work!
Here is my movie homework to-watch list of Allen’s films I haven’t yet seen: Sleeper, Broadway Danny Rose, Husbands and Wives, The Purple Rose of Cairo, What’s Up Tiger Lily, and Mighty Aphrodite.
And here is my list of personal favorites: Annie Hall, Hannah and Her Sisters, Play it Again Sam, and Manhattan.
What are your favorite Woody Allen movies?
