Really? Because many would say he's had a creative resurgence since "Match Point", and one of my favorites came after "Deconstructing Harry" which is "Sweet and Lowdown". I think maybe the movies he chooses not to act in these days are better, and he's been acting less and less and mostly just writing and directing. I guess he's hit or miss since he puts out so much.

I dare say you're right and I should give some of his more recent stuff a go. To be fair, though, there's only a few films from even his supposed golden era that I really like: Annie Hall, Manhattan, Hannah and Her Sisters, Purple Rose of Cairo. That's about it. Was never a big fan of stuff like Bananas or Sleeper.

Anyway, just watched.

Some great acting but it feels more like a sketch of a film than the thing itself.

sleeper is hilarious but it's also pretty dated, bananas was goofy in a good way but also very dated, what's up tigerlilly is unwatchable, etc.

however--- bullets over broadway came after his late 70s/early 80s golden era but it's still great (i think it was right before deconstructing harry).

from his new stuff i've loved midnight in paris, match point, sweet and lowdown, and... what else was there... oh, yes, barcelona! i mean vicki cristina barcelona. gorgeous cinematography on this one, a lush yellow palette. great cast too. plus, your trip!

Midnight In Paris is brilliant and it's certainly up there with his best. It's one of them films you find yourself watching with a silly grin on your face.

PARIS- I hated it. It was way too eager to please. Owen Wilson sucks. It's point was obvious very early on. etc.

ROME- I liked it. A lot actually. The stories all unfolded in unexpected directions. Watching it, I did something I haven't done in an Allen film for years and years and years: laugh a lot and enjoy myself. It's slight, but not brainless.

rome is celebrity yes? i liked it but i thought its points about celebrity were a little too telegraphed. loved the shower opera though-- this is reminiscent of both broadway danny rose (the agent of doomed acts) and zelig-- zelig because of the absurdity of the situations. damn, the first time i watched zelig i laughed so hard i had bellyaches-- hasn't fared so well in rewatches for me, but still that first time was tremendously memorable.

re: paris yes it's a bit of a sentimental movie but eh! and ellen page was great in it.

Midnight In Paris is delight and with that there is no room for any other opinion.

Sure SPOUT AWAY about how rubbish this is or how "luscious" that is but step...the hell away from Midnight In Paris.

did you notice my post to demonrail where i said i LOVED midnight in paris? cuz i do. i mentioned to evollove that yeah was a bit sentimental but "Eh!" by "eh!" i mean "whatever" or "i don't care" or "it doesn't kill the movie." plus, wasn't ellen page great in it? horrible character, great performance.

anyway evollove seems to prefer colder/more analytical movies-- for me midnight in paris was 100 times better than celebrity-- but i still liked celebrity.

I do not enjoy most woody allen movies. Just don't. I find them boring and inconsequential. even the "funny" ones.

Maybe now, but I remember all kinds of fuss and excitement about it when it originally came out. It didn't do much for me but plenty of people considered it a masterpiece at the time. Personally I preferred Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid.

i just realized that due to a brain inFARTction i mixed up the stories/casts of midnight in paris and to rome with love and i threw in the name "celebrity" that had nothing to do with nothing. busy fucking day!

because to rome with love is a bunch of stories i mixed up the ellen page /jesse whatever story with the midnight in paris story. well, both involve some sort of time travel, right? hA! but midnight in paris is standalone (and great!).

then i was thinking about the roberto begnini storyline from "to rome with love" and called it "celebrity!' because, fuck, it's about being famous for the fuck of it (that's what i called "too telegraphed"). i did place the opera story correctly. i totally forgot the penelope story which is kinda like bullets over broadway in that the male protagonist decides the city is too much and goes back home (and there's criminals).

anyway, way to fuck it all up. yay me! haa haaa haaa.
