Favorite Woody Allen


What a busy month for this writer! With a new short story collection out on Kindle, A BUCKET OF BOOBS, and 15 of my plays running (1 at the Ensemble Theatre of Chattanooga, 1 at Hobo Junction in Chicago and 13 in my evening TALES OF THE TWINKLING TWILIGHT at Raven Theatre in Chicago), I thought I’d post a little something about one of my earliest influences.

Woody Allen.

Last night I watched the 1994 TV movie version of Don’t Drink The Water, so now I’ve seen every movie written and directed by Woody Allen. Here are some of my favorites and least favorites.


Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex But Were Afraid To Ask (1972)
Annie Hall (1977)
Manhattan (1979)
Stardust Memories (1980)
The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985)
Hannah and Her Sisters (1986)
Alice (1990)
Shadows And Fog (1991)
Bullets Over Broadway (1994)
Vicky Christina Barcelona (2008)

Least Favorites:

Zelig (1983)
September (1987)
Celebrity (1998)
Hollywood Ending (2002)
Melinda and Melinda (2004)

Woody was a big influence on what I put down on paper when I first started. That influence may have worn off a little over the years, but I think it still shows up from time to time.
