‘Blue Jasmine’ Review

Blue Jasmine review
Sony Pictures Classics

It should be no surprise that Woody Allen, survivor of a protracted tabloid scandal, should make 'Blue Jasmine.' It's a story of what happens after the headlines, about the emotional aftershocks of big, juicy news and how they affect unexpected people in unexpected ways. This isn't a very funny movie, but its observational instincts are so bright that the scenes evoke laughter, even when the story is actually rather sad. It's one of Allen's best films in years and a silver-plated gift to Cate Blanchett who takes the character and runs with it.

Sibling Revivalry: Watching ‘Annie Hall’ For the First Time

Annie Hall
MGM

I’ve been a little desperate to show Lindsay a romantic comedy that won’t make her completely barfy, so it’s serendipitous that director Woody Allen’s latest film, ‘To Rome with Love,’ is releasing this Friday, June 22 – it gave us a chance to revisit one of his greatest for our latest Sibling Revivalry screening.

‘Annie Hall’ (1977) is undoubtedly Allen’s most beloved film, and I had high hopes that its authentic (albeit somewhat neurotic) characters and central relationship would resonate with Lindsay on an authentic level.

Turns out, I was right. In fact, Lindsay found something of a surrogate sister in Diane Keaton’s character Annie (I’m frankly a little jealous!). She also learned a thing or two – specifically, regarding the fact that P. Diddy didn’t coin the term "lurve," style icons existed prior to Carrie Bradshaw, and tears shed over insects of unusual size are, "Never about the bug." As an added bonus, I’m pretty sure the film inspired her to come up with a business idea that could earn her millions. Here’s our chat about ‘Annie Hall’ 35 years after the film’s release.

‘To Rome With Love’ Review

To Rome With Love
Sony Pictures Classics

Unlike any other filmmaker, Woody Allen both benefits and suffers from our knowledge of the author. We know his work habits, pumping out a new title each season like a dressmaker's line, keeping takes to a minimum and wrapping each day in time for an early dinner. When a transition seems forced or a joke doesn't land we think, “C'mon Woody, put in the extra effort.”

On the other hand, the sometimes overly patrician dialogue or far-fetched relationship entanglement will seem extra pungent, knowing how it fits into his larger oeuvre, and we'll find ourselves being overly kind. Maybe he should retire/oh, I hope he never retires. This is the internal debate going through my mind when I watch a lesser, albeit entertaining Woody Allen film like 'To Rome With Love.'
