REVIEWS:





"Alvy Singer (Woody Allen) stands in front of an orangey sort
of backdrop and tells us, the movie audience, the joke about two
women at a Catskill resort. 'The food,' says the first woman,
'is terrible.' 'Yes,' the second woman agrees, 'and the portions
are so small.' This, says Alvy Singer, is just about the way he
feels about life. It's not great—in fact, it's pretty evenly divided
between the horrible and the miserable—but as long as it's there,
he wants more. In this fashion, Woody Allen introduces us to the
particular concerns of his fine new film, Annie Hall, a comedy about
urban love and incompatability that finally establishes Woody as one
of our most audacious filmmakers, as well as the only American
filmmaker who is able to work seriously in the comic mode
without being the least bit ponderous."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; April 21, 1977




ROGER EBERT'S 1977 REVIEW:




ROGER EBERT'S 2002 REVIEW:



"Annie Hall contains more intellectual wit and cultural
references than any other movie ever to win the Oscar for
best picture, and in winning the award in 1977 it edged out
'Star Wars', an outcome unthinkable today. .... This is a movie that
establishes its tone by constantly switching between tones: The
switches reflect the restless mind of the filmmaker, turning
away from the apparent subject of a scene to find the angle that
reveals the joke. 'Annie Hall' is a movie about a man who is
always looking for the loopholes in perfection. Who can turn
everything into a joke, and wishes he couldn't."

-- Roger Ebert; May 12, 2002
