This guy is a jerk whether his films are good or not. I happened to run into him near the 4 Seasons in both San Diego and Seattle. He acted every bit as sleazy as his reputation. I have no respect for men like him and I don't think it has no bearing or other issues as some would have it. A creep is a creep is a creep is a creep. Sorry Woody, not funny to me.

I was not a Woody Allen fan but am now. I loved the documentary and feel it was very well done. Also would like to see more of his movies now after seeing some of the process during production of some of them. Would recommend the film.

If you have an interest in Woody Allen and are familiar with his work you will probably enjoy this film that shows how his career evolved. More of a tribute than an analysis, but still an important historical chronicle. Set aside lots of time because the entire documentary is over 3-and-a-half hours long. Interesting.

First half is focused, second half wanders - kind of like Woody's career. Nice to see him talking about his work, though not all the interviewees are great.
