In the first of our Boxset reviews we intend watching the recently purchased Woody Allen Collection. Considered the most consistent film maker working today, Woody Allen has had his highs and lows in terms of popularity but his output of roughly one film a year is an achievement few can match. Currently Allen is on the up again with the recent success of Vicki Cristina Barcelona and Midnight in Paris. In fact the latter film has proven to be his most financially successful film of his career. I was so impressed that it made my top ten of last year.
The collection consists of twenty films written and directed by Woody between 1971 and 1990. The set traces his output from the comedy, Bananas through to the fantasy romance, Alice. Missing from the set are Play it Again Sam which was not directed by Allen and New York Stories which was a short film within a three New York directors anthology.
It is intended that each film receives its own review and will be posted on the site in order of release. It may take some time to complete this!
