Dir. Woody Allen. 1977, 93 mins. 35mm. With Diane Keaton, Woody Allen. Best Picture, Director, Screenplay, and Actress (Keaton) honors went to Allen’s groundbreaking romantic comedy, which bridged the gap between the filmmaker’s early slapstick comedies and his more dramatic period. Yet despite the poignancy and psychological depth in this fragmented, non-chronological portrait of a failed relationship, Annie Hall is as wall-to-wall funny as anything Allen ever made, and in the title role, Keaton is pure neurotic magic.
