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.'
Woody Allen is racking up an impressive cast list for his latest film, an untitled comedy set to shoot in San Francisco and New York over the summer. The latest names added to the roster: Comedians Louis C.K. and Andrew Dice Clay.
We'll wait here while you read that last one again. Done? Yeah, we're confused, too.
Lindsay Lohan has been trying to resuscitate her once-promising career for years. After 'Mean Girls,' the starlet had a series of lows that included drug use, rehab, getting fired from various projects, and jail time.
But is Woody Allen the right man to save her and put her back on track?
Whenever we think about the settings to some of the more recent Woody Allen pictures, our minds travel off to far off places like London and Rome. Every few years he decides to try and film one of his movies in New York City, but it's been rather difficult for the famed director to have that happen, that is until now.
If there's one thing that Woody Allen can do best, he can direct and write one hell of a movie, just like what he did with 'Midnight in Paris.' He's also a decent actor and he's wearing all those hats for his latest film. Watch as Allen and his cast (Alec Baldwin, Ellen Page, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig, Penélope Cruz, Roberto Benigni) show off the lives of several different people in the cute and funny new trailer for Sony Pictures Classics' 'To Rome With Love.'
Consummate work horse Woody Allen only recently completed 'To Rome With Love' - his latest film starring Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg and Ellen Page - but he's already eying stars for his next ensemble piece. And shockingly neither of these names are Penelope Cruz.
Writer-director Woody Allen has been making films for decades, captivating audiences across the globe with his tales of romance, mystery and the ever-fine line of comedy woven in each one of his movies. Now he's getting ready to unleash another one of his charming films to the masses which is 'To Rome With Love.'
If you were a fan of Woody Allen's 'Midnight in Paris' last year, it might interest you to know that his whimsical comedy about an author suffering writer's block -- and a shrew of a fiancee -- who travels back in time to the 20s via a Parisian nightclub (seriously, stay away from the absinthe, kids) wasn't exactly new material for the writer/director.
