Woody Allen

Iconic writer, director, actor, comedian, and musician Woody Allen finally has his own well deserved documentary. This with a cinema-release of a the PBS American Masters series. The documentary itself unfortunately forgets that film is all about the visual. Yes, it has some great talking heads featuring in it, such as Diane Keaton, Larry David, Penelope Cruz, Martin Scorsese and Sean Penn, but the I must say with unprecedented access, Emmy®-winning, Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Robert Weide doesn’t present us with anything more visually stimulating than some classic clips and behind the scenes footage. However, for the real Woody fans it is no doubt a must-see! Watch Part1 and Part2 via Itunes.
