an over-rated film. i really can’t understand why this is considered among the greatest allen films. it has some funny moments and nice photography, but it’s not as good as annie hall or radio days or a lot of others. meryl streep is good and so is diane keaton (in an opposite role from her role as annie hall), but acting isn’t what draws me to woody allen films – it’s about self-deprecating wit and referential humor. since it’s woody allen and since everyone else seems to love it we’ll just assume i missed something completely.
