Plot Summary

Beginning with Allen’s childhood and his first professional gigs as a teen — furnishing jokes for comics and publicists — WOODY ALLEN: A DOCUMENTARY chronicles the trajectory and longevity of Allen’s career: from his work in the 1950s-60s as a TV scribe for Sid Caesar, standup comedian and frequent TV talk show guest, to a writer-director averaging one film-per-year for more than 40 years. Director Bob Weide covers Allen’s earliest film work in “Take the Money and Run,” “Bananas, Sleeper,” and “Love and Death”; frequent Oscar® favorites such as “Annie Hall,” “Manhattan,” “Zelig,” “Broadway Danny Rose,” “Purple Rose of Cairo,” “Crimes and Misdemeanors,” “Husbands & Wives,” “Bullets Over Broadway,” and “Mighty Aphrodite”; and his recent globetrotting phase with “Match Point,” “Vicky Christina Barcelona,” and his latest success “Midnight in Paris.”

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It's a collaborative effort with Woody (who, unusually, looks happy to be interviewed), so we see him at home (showing off a typewriter he bought for $40 at 16), writing on his bed and standing outside his childhood home in Brooklyn. – Dave Calhoun, Time Out, Jun 6, 2012

Fresh: The doco only offers some insights, but even a minor glimpse into the notoriously private life of Allen is a treat. – Simon Miraudo, Quickflix, Jun 5, 2012

Fresh: I could have watched this armada forever. The clips alone, from Sleeper, Annie Hall, Zelig and others, pageant his greatness. – Nigel Andrews, Financial Times, Jun 7, 2012

Fresh: Appropriately fawning. – Charlie Lyne, Ultra Culture, Jul 6, 2012

Woody Allen: A Documentary

A great documentary. For all of my 53 years, Woody Allen has been there. The first movie I was ever compelled to watch twice, (the second time being the very next day), was Sleeper. Take the Money and Run, Annie Hall, Manhattan, Broadway Danny Rose, Small Time Crooks, Love and Death, all movies that will bring channel surfing to a stop. Downloading part 2 as I write. Mr. Allen, your are an American icon.
