This week’s video has been doing the rounds on Twitter recently thanks to a recent write up on the website Dangerous Minds. It’s a one hour documentary about Woody Allen made for French TV in 1979. The wonderful video features some commentary in French, but there’s a lot of Woody being interviewed in English, in his New York apartment.
We are highlighting this video because our review series has just hit 1979. We reviewed Interiors and are about to tackle Allen’s 1979 masterpiece Manhattan. This video features Allen talking about the making of both films, and his films and career before that.
1979 is Allen at the height of his powers, box office draw and acclaim. It’s a great artifact to have captured.
