Mr. Woody Allen

1971 Interview

Oh, in so many ways Mr. Allen has shown me so many things. He did this mostly between 1977 and let’s say 1987, with Annie Hall and Stardust Memories and Manhattan, but how can one leave out Purple Rose of Cairo and Broadway Danny Rose and Zelig and on and on. I found this interview a while ago, and it reminded me of how subversive he could be. There is a delightful and refreshing insolence to this interview – I loved that about him.

And for those of you who love Godard and Woody, here is a very strange little piece Mr. Godard did about Mr. Allen, I think for European TV. I mean, have you seen anything this strange and tension-filled and utterly curious with any contemporary filmmakers?
