Winner of the top four Academy Awards of 1978, Woody Allen’s comedic masterpiece is a brilliantly observed film about the intricacies and nuances of human love and relationships. Annie Hall brought a level of sophistication and intelligence to the comedy genre that has rarely been seen. Woody Allen expanded traditional storytelling to use a variety of techniques that broke traditions of narrative and style – to illuminate the foibles of human attraction, flirtation and romance – unlike any other film before or since.
I watched it last week for the first time in over 20 years and it still amazes me.
