Consensus: Filled with poignant performances and devastating humor, Annie Hall represents a quantum leap for Woody Allen and remains an American classic.

This is Woody Allen's signature film, arguably his best and certainly his most popular.

New Yorker

Allen joins the Catskills tummler's anything-for-a-laugh antics with a Eurocentric art-house self-awareness and a psychoanalytic obsession in baring his sexual desires and frustrations, romantic disasters, and neurotic inhibitions.

Allen tosses out the usual romantic comedy conventions for his own brand of humor, but under the gags and self-effacing jokes is the portrait of two people who fall in love and then... fall out of love.

Allen (as a result of his exposure to Bergman, perhaps) has greatly matured as a filmmaking talent. Annie Hall is, by far, his most sophisticated, most emotionally complex film.

This is the link between Allen's "earlier, funnier" stuff and more probing works like Interiors and Manhattan. Would that we all could build such masterful bridges.

Allen's imaginative, often avant-garde approach to the material goes a long way towards compensating for a decidedly uneven atmosphere...

Time Out

While its consonance comes largely from Gordon Willis's photography and Allen's spacious sense of New York, pathos comes at best from Keaton's evaporative performance and a slightly sentimental conception.

Personal as the story he is telling may be, what separates this film from Allen's own past work and most other recent comedy is its general believability.

I think It's his best picture so far, and I hope that audiences will enjoy his drily aggressive, despairingly narcissistic humour as much as I did.

Who knew that in 1977 Woody Allen would graphically portray exactly the type of urban soul that rural Trump supporters hate: over-educated, over-erudite, and… More

Woody Allen's neurotic and original classic 'Annie Hall' still holds up as a poignant comedy to this day. Not only is it hilarious, but… More

I guess I just don't like films with Woody Allen in them. I try to watch them, but he prattles on and on.

Creative for its time, and it must have been a real shock to Allen's fans - who'd see this coming after Bananas, Love and Death, etc.? - but it's… More
