Yep. Now that I’ve seen every movie Woody Allen has directed, my life does feel pretty empty.
Allan Stewart Konigsberg, otherwise known as Woody Allen, remains the most respected screenwriter in all of American cinema. Take one look at one of his movies and you can tell why.
Actually, be careful which of his movies you pick. He’s got a bunch of classics. But he’s got 45 movies overall, mind you. There are some real stinkers out there that I would not recommend watching.
Technically, this is not a filmography complete. His newest film, “Magic in the Moonlight” is currently in limited release and I am unable to see it as of yet. Seeing how most of the movies he has made for his current distributor, Sony Pictures Classics, expanded to wide release after four weeks, it won’t even be playing near me until almost four weeks from now. (The movie just opened two days ago, and it’s not playing in very many theaters at all.)
But I’m pretty impatient, so let’s get this over with. Here’s my ranking of Woody Allen’s movies from worst to best. Actually, this is just part one, which will be #44 through #26. Part two will be posted tomorrow at 1pm, and that will feature #25 through #11. Part three will be posted Tuesday at 1pm, and of course that will feature #10 through #1.
So, without further ado, I give you…Mr. Woody Allen.
