Annie Hall (1977)

Review

The Woodman’s finest hour, in this bittersweet love story between a die-hard New Yorker and a midwestern ditz, about what it really takes to make a relationship (or two or three) work. Woody Allen is at his best as an actor, and Diane Keaton has never had a better role. What makes Annie Hall so much fun, though, is the cameos — from Paul Simon to Jeff Goldblum’s one liner (On the phone: ‘I forgot my mantra!’), it’s a complete send-up of the 70s. Best is Christopher Walken as Annie’s psychotic brother.

Utterly hilarious, yet it rings absolutely true. A true, and rare, must-see.
