Head and heart
Annie Hall: a romantic comedy that is so much more than that. It's endlessly inventive, almost reckless with tricks, but it works every time. So many bits in this movie have been referred to by me and my friends when something happens: wishing we had Marshall McLuhan to intercede with a blathering know-it-all; comparing reactions of girlfriends to silly situations like lobster-catching; imagining what someone really means by an awkward comment. This is Woody Allen's pinnacle, a perfect combination of his brainy humor and his heart.
