Woody Allen - In His Prime

For many years now, Woody Allen seems to have been cruising as a filmmaker - a victim, it sometimes seems, of his own remarkable facility.

Yet for a little more than a decade, following his breakthrough in 1977 with Annie Hall, he was one of the most original filmmakers in America, combining the American comic tradition of the ‘little man' with some of the more serious concerns of the European auteurs he most admired.

This five-week course will start by showing the recent film Woody Allen: A Documentary, which gives an overview of his career with many well-chosen extracts from his films together with illuminating interviews with Allen, in which he describes his working methods and approach to filming. We will follow this by exploring four of his best films, when he was at his creative peak, in order to establish the distinctive qualities that make him a major film director: Annie Hall, Manhattan, Hannah and her Sisters, Crimes and Misdemeanors.
