Thanks, R. He's a chesnut seller I saw the last Woody Alen's (one of my favourites directors), it wasn't that good as others, but I still like everything he makes. This time with an mean Ewan Mcgregor
Woody Allen is my favourite director! I have nearly all his films on DVD. His more recent stuff is a bit hit or miss, but the 60's 70's and early 80's are simply genius. My favourite film of his is 'A Midsummer Nights Sex Comedy' - I could watch it over and over again! This comes in number two on my all time favourites list - my favourite is 2001 A Space Odyssey by Kubrick, another genius behind the lens.Richard Crowe Visit My Website
Hey Richard, it's great you like Woody! It's difficult for me to pick one of his movies, he represents all I like the most: American classic movies from the 30's and 40's (gangsters, noir, screwball), Nouvelle Vague, Italian Realism...His movies, music and images, are a beautiful tribute to that cinema. "Manhantan Murder Mystery" is special for me, I can't stop laughing when I see it and I had to film a sequency of it when I was studying Visual Comunication, I was Angelica Huston Kubrick is awesome, of course. One of my favorite also is Billy Wilder, I just love his cinism.
Thanks a lot Deanna and Alan
I got so caught up in the movies I had to go and have another look at your shot....the lighting is fantastic Carmen.. a 10 plus from me....john We're off to see the Lizard~~the wonderful (sic) Lizard of Oz~~
I think that is an amazing shot!.....................and the last time I went to the cinema was 1978!....lol.........................keep posting them Carmen!..........Ken
If I see something I "SHOOT!"
I'm sure you played Angelica beautifully! Manhattan Murder Mystery is one of the better films from the 90's. I recently watched Scoop which I feel his his best recent piece. That being said, I feel none of these come anywhere close to his 70's classics like Sleeper, Bananas, Play it Again Sam and Annie Hall. I even laugh just thinking about them! I do like many Wilder films. Although Some Like it Hot is a timeless classic, I think I prefer The Apartment or The Front Page. The Wilder / Lemmon partnership worked as well as Laurel and Hardy. (Dont get me started on L&H as I have all their movies and I am a member of Sons of the Desert! )Richard Crowe Visit My Website
Thanks everybody for your lovely comments
(I agree with you, R, Scoop is just his best recent piece. I couldn't stop laughing when I saw it at the cinema, I hardly could listen to it with my laughs).
