Classic Woody Allen
Life doesn't imitate art, it imitates bad television.
Hey, don't knock masturbation. It's sex with someone I love.
To you, I'm an atheist; to God, I'm the loyal opposition.
I had a great evening; it was like the Nuremberg Trials.
Ok, so no guesses who wrote these brilliant lines, but can you pick the films? Either way, you're in for a treat!
If you can't name the films, then the Chauvel's Classic Woody Allen retrospective is just what you'll need to swot up on one of cinema's greats. And if you can (impressive!), then surely you’re a big enough Allen fan to be champing at the bit to revisit his classics on the silver screen. Win win!
Each Friday night from December 3 to January 14 the Chauvel will host a series of spectacular double billings, with pairings including Manhattan + Hannah and her Sisters; Zelig + Purple Rose of Cairo; Love and Death + Stardust Memories.
So, no excuses. It's time to get your New York, "teleological, existential agnostic" angst on and celebrate the wonderfully prolific Allen in his groundbreaking, hilarious heyday.
