Woody Allen – Film by Film

In 2015, the world celebrates 50 years of films by Woody Allen. Since he first vented his neuroses in 1965, Woody Allen has enjoyed a career unlike any other writer or director in Hollywood. The impact of his comedy and his psychoanalysis of the modern world have been hugely influential and had a profound effect on popular culture ever since.

Everybody has their favourite Woody movie; whether it’s his early autobiographical work such as Annie Hall or Manhattan, or later less- introspective films such as Match Point or Blue Jasmine, Woody Allen has never failed to release a movie every year, on time and on budget. As Woody said about himself: “The two biggest myths about me are that I’m an intellectual, because I wear these glasses, and that I’m an artist because my films lose money.” As self-critical as ever – and with a new film due to be released in July 2015 and an Amazon-streamed TV series scheduled for autumn 2015 – Woody Allen remains a force to be reckoned with.

Woody Allen: Film by Film is an insightful, entertaining and authoritative exploration into the mind of one of the world’s most complex and neurotic moviemakers. The book explores themes, motifs and styles and breaks down Allen’s films frame by frame to help understand the brilliant and comical mind of one of popular culture’s best loved, and intelligent, worriers.
