Sydney 2012: Day 6 Trailer Of The Day - WOODY ALLEN: A DOCUMENTARY

This fascinating documentary examines the creative life of the multi-hyphenate filmmaker from his early years, to his days writing for TV and doing stand up to his recent Oscar® win for  Midnight in Paris. Woody's impressive four-decade career is illustrated with countless clips:1965's What's New Pussycat? (an experience that convinced him never to write anything he didn't direct); early-'70s comedies  Bananas and  Sleeper; megahit  Annie Hall (1977); the Bergman-influenced  Interiors (1978); his hometown homage Manhattan (1979); the 1986 Oscar-winner  Hannah and Her Sisters; the London-set Match Point (2005); the Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem-starrer  Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008) - the list is as rich as it is long. Director Robert Weide includes interviews with Woody's mother, his sister and producing partner Letty Aronson, his managers, a plethora of actors (Diane Keaton, Scarlett Johansson, Owen Wilson) and, of course, the man himself.

Embedded below is the trailer.

    Thanks, Joe. This is a really interesting documentary on Allen (and my review will be written soon). Didn't see Toback in it though.

    No Toback...?

    Too bad....they know each other though.....Allen appeared in The Outsider (2005), a doc about Toback.

  • Hugo Ozman

    No Toback. Chris Rock's in it though...
