#8- Manhattan- Woody Allen- 1979

"Not everybody gets corrupted. You have to have a little faith in people. "

Yet another freebee as I have blogged about this film. It's a beautiful film, a funny and heartbreaking story and classic Woody Allen straight through. Manhattan starts of with an amazing montage of sights around the city with the backdrop of Gershwin and shrouded in Black and White as the narrator and main character states it always should be. He's right as the film is beautiful. So here is the link to what I said before. Some things stand. As far as I'm concerned, this is Woody's best film straight through. Here is the link.

I admit that I have seen way less Woody Allen than I should. I did, however, catch a part of Mighty Aphrodite on TV the other night, and thought it was great. I'm sure it pales in comparison to this flick and the other ones people always seem to be talking about, but still.
