this whole movie relies on woody allen’s self deprecation but you can tell that to this day he thinks he’s the smartest and funniest writer in hollywood and this goddamn movie isn’t even good. that’s all
Orson Welles: I hate Woody Allen physically, I dislike that kind of man.
Henry Jaglom: I’ve never understood why. Have you met him?
O.W.: Oh, yes. I can hardly bear to talk to him. He has the Chaplin disease. That particular combination of arrogance and timidity sets my teeth on edge.
H.J.: He’s not arrogant; he’s shy.
O.W.: He is arrogant. Like all people with timid personalities, his arrogance is unlimited. Anybody who speaks quietly and shrivels up in company is unbelievably arrogant. He acts shy, but he’s not. He’s scared. He hates himself, and he loves himself, a very tense situation. It’s people like me who have to carry on and pretend to be modest. To me, it’s the most embarrassing thing in the world—a man who presents himself at his worst to get laughs, in order to free himself from his hang-ups. Everything he does on the screen is therapeutic.
I’ve seen a lot of movies jack themselves off, some of which I actually quite loved, but this one went full autofellatio. This review isn’t even about the allegations against Woody, I actually went in expecting to love this. I would just genuinely love to hear others thoughts on why it’s considered a masterpiece because I feel like I’m...missing something.
Annie Hall beat Star Wars for best picture. I feel bad, ya know? Annie Hall is a beautiful and wonderful look at romance, told by the brilliant mind of Woody Allen.
And yet, Star Wars fan-boys (including me) hated the film, no matter if they've seen it or not.
Now, I can say without reservations, that I was wrong.
Annie Hall is simply wondrous.
Now, I wouldn't say that I enjoy it better than Star Wars, but Annie Hall is a film that is so accomplished in so many ways.
First off, the performances by Woody Allen and Diane Keaton are excellent, both bringing character and liveliness to their roles. In particular, Woody's character of Alvy Singer is sublimely executed.…
the single only relatable thing about this mental masturbation of a movie is diane keaton's fear of bugs
I liked the part when they were talking to each other and there are subtitles that say what they’re thinking
I was with Woody all the way until he sneezed into the coke.
THIS is the best sci-fi movie of 1977 because Star Wars doesn’t lead you to believe that Diane Keaton is dating Woody Allen
How is it possible that someone as insufferable as Woody Allen's character had multiple long-term relationships???
Overflowing with Woody Allen's sense of entitlement and superiority over literally every other human being he comes across whilst believing himself as quirky and unique for his simultaneous self-depreciation ... like ...... this man brings a new meaning to the words Toxic Waste
"Mental masturbation" is this movie in a nutshell. It's basically Indulgence: The Movie. But honestly, even though Woody Allen is clearly an egotist who wrote himself a character in whom Annie would have absolutely no interest in the real world, this movie is so witty and well written that it's impossible to dismiss. Despite it's incessant unlikeability, it somehow still manages to be incredibly charming and occasionally insightful. A strange mix of mature and immature that works really well because in the end, aren't we all just younger versions of ourselves trapped by the nonstop force of time in our old, dying bodies - and so, as much as we may hate it, we relate to Alvy Singer.
On the surface it’s simple, but when you go deeper you realized that it’s a deeply funny and clever dramatic romcom that has a lot of social commentaries. It’s smart dialogue and amazing lead performances from Diane Keaton and Woody Allen make this movie a lot better than I thought it would be. There are so many little details that are so comedic and smart. I was constantly shocked at how unique a lot of this movie was. Seeing their relationship with was charming and entertaining. The script was extremely comical and worked perfectly well for these actors. It subverted my expectations and I laughed quite a bit.
This beat Star Wars for best picture and ya know what? I’m cool with that!

Funny and interesting. I dated a girl like Annie Hall it was twisted. I see a lot of bad reviews that are extra harsh for what is presented. I feel that is partially due to people hating woody which is fair but I think its a little unfair to the piece removed with Woody removed.
A relationship, I think, is like a shark. You know? It has to constantly move forward or it dies. And I think what we got on our hands is a dead shark.
Sempre vai morar no meu coração.
n consegui formar minha opniao direito achei caotico demais p minha cabeça e as pautas bem profundas se analisar bem.
This will be a quicker review but I love Annie hall. It’s so down to earth. Woody Allen is so charming even though in recent news he turned out to be a weirdo all along. I like the little moments when they pretty much stop time for essentially a real life cutaway gag. Annie is very likeable and works pretty well with woody Allen. Cool cameo scenes with Christopher walken even though he wasn’t popular at the time and btw his scene with him driving in the car is hilarious the funniest part in the film by far. It’s just a movie to watch when you want to have fun and relax 3.5/5.
6 years later and I finally got round to watching this
demasiados sentimientos encontrados para una película tan básica
Aw fuck, I hate that I love this
Cute and witty. Kinda(intentionally?) sexist. Saved by the ending. Is Annie gay?
