Annie Hall

Woody Allen's best, and one of the best films ever.

Annie Hall is a remarkable achievement in filmmaking that transcends its simple, romantic premise to create a vivid portrait of not only 70's pop culture, but of human nature itself. Allen and Dianne Keaton are so perfect in their roles, and this couple is one of the most memorable ever for me.

The best part of Annie Hall is its incredible screenplay-the best ever to be written. Not a word is wasted nor a line unquotable. Each line is simultaneously hilarious and poignant. Everything is part of a greater design.. it's the rare film to find a perfect balance between sheer entertainment, humor, and poignancy.
