Review: Manhattan

★★★ Manhattan has ensconsed itself as a classic and in many ways is the quintessential Woody Allen film with its gorgeous visual style and Gershwin score. But despite being delightfully self-defeating and witty it is also emotionally and intellectually muddled.

Film Review: What’s Up, Tiger Lily?

★★ A bizarre hodgepodge of broad humour, bad music and horrible voices, completely devoid of the incisive sensibility Allen would explore in his later work. History has mostly forgotten What’s Up, Tiger Lily?, and that’s probably a good thing.
