I've finally managed to see every film Woody Allen has directed and most of the ones he's acted in (easy enough because they're usually the same). So I've decided to make a list in order of my favourite ones in the sense of watch-ability. This might not be entirely in sync with excellent film-making exactly because I like comedy more than drama hence I might be biased toward Annie Hall over Interiors but maybe some people will agree with the order. Of course, my memory is flawed so the films I saw first might be slightly forgotten but then again if they were good they're memorable, right?
Must watch - If you have other films you plan on watching and haven't see these, scrap the others and watch these instead. And if you have seen them, watch them again.
1. Manhattan (1979)
2. Annie Hall (1977)
3. Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989)
4. Hannah and Her Sisters (1986)
5. The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985)
6. Midnight in Paris (2011)
Try to watch as soon as possible - Maybe you can watch them after you're done with your first choices, but no later. They're still better than most films showing in the cinema now
7. Husbands and Wives (1992)
8. Sleeper (1973)
9. Bullets Over Broadway (1994)
10. Love and Death (1975)
11. Zelig (1983)
There's time still -Not exactly a priority but if you're short on films and have seen the rest you go to these.
12. Match Point (2005)
13. Deconstructing Harry (1997)
14. Radio Days (1987)
15. Bananas (1971)
16. Manhattan Murder Mystery (1993)
17. Take the Money and Run (1969)
