Ranking Woody Allen
My viewing of Manhattan today puts my list of “Woody Allen movies seen” at 11. I’ve still got a hell of a lot of work to do since he’s done over 40 movies but its a decent start. Come to think of it, I haven’t seen a Woody Allen movie that I didn’t like… I just enjoy them in varying degrees. Here’s how I would rank them thus far.
- Annie Hall (1977)
- Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989)
- Match Point (2005)
- Bullets Over Broadway (1994)
- Sleeper (1973)
- Manhattan (1979)
- Mighty Aphrodite (1995)
- Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008)
- Cassandra’s Dream (2007)
- The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985)
- Love and Death (1975)
Note: The fact that Love and Death came in last is a testament to Allen’s quality of work more than it is a statement of my disapproval for that film. I actually liked it quite a bit.
