With rich, compelling characters and masterful storytelling, Woody Allen truly is one of the world's great filmmakers. The 4 movies in this must-own collection represent Woody Allen at his best.
Annie Hall: Considered to be Woody Allen's breakthrough movie, Annie Hall won four Oscars including Best Picture and established Allen as the premier auteur filmmaker. Alvy Singer (Allen) is one of Manhattan's most brilliant comedians, but when it comes to romance, his delivery needs a little work. When he falls in love with the ditzy but delightful nightclub singer Annie Hall (Diane Keaton), his own insecurities sabotage the affair, and Annie is forced to leave Alvy for a new life - and lover (Paul Simon) - in Los Angeles. Knowing he may have lost Annie forever, Alvy's willing to go to any lengths to recapture the only thing that ever mattered... true love.
Manhattan: Nominated for two Academy Awards, Manhattan is a wry, touching and finely rendered portrait of modern relationships set against the backdrop of urban alienation. Forty-two-year-old Manhattan native Isaac Davis (Allen) has a job he hates, a seventeen year- old girlfriend, Tracy (Mariel Hemingway), he doesn't love, and a lesbian ex-wife, Jill (Meryl Streep), whom he'd like to strangle. But when he meets his best friend's sexy intellectual mistress, Mary (Diane Keaton), Isaac falls head over heels in lust! Leaving Tracy, bedding Mary and quitting his job is just the beginning of Isaac's quest for romance in a city where sex is as intimate as a handshake - and the gateway to true love... is a revolving door.
Hannah And Her Sisters: Hannah and Her Sisters spins a tale of three unforgettable women and showcases Woody Allen. The eldest daughter of show-biz parents, Hannah (Mia Farrow) is a devoted wife, loving mother and successful actress. A loyal supporter of her two aimless sisters Lee (Barbara Hershey) and Holly (Dianne Wiest), she's also the emotional backbone of a family that seems to resent her stability almost as much as they depend on it. But when Hannah's world is sabotaged by sibling rivalry, she finally begins to see that she's as lost as everyone else, and in order to find herself, she'll have to choose - between the independence her family can't live with...and the family she can't live without.
Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex* But Were Afraid To Ask: Woody Allen pushes the frontiers of comedy by consolidating his madcap sensibility and wickedly funny irreverence with his developing penchant for visually arresting humor. Giving complete indulgence to the zany eccentricity of his medium. Allen rises to the occasion with aphrodisiacs that prove effective for a court jester (Allen) who finds the key to the Queen's (Lynn Redgrave) heart. Unnatural acts get wild and woolly when a good doctor (Gene Wilder) falls for a fickle sheep. Jack Barry gives fetishism 20 questions on a wacky TV show called "What's My Perversion?" Sex research goes under the microscope when a mad scientist (John Carradine) unleashes a marauding breast. And the absurdity comes to a frenzied climax with Tony Randall, Burt Reynolds and Allen as sperm... having second thoughts about ejaculation!
