Woody Allen: A Documentary

4

The life of film-maker Woody Allen

Trimmed for cinemas, Robert B. Weide’s TV portrait of the US’s busiest funnyman reverts to its original two-part, 192-minute format for a DVD release that should be required viewing for any self-respecting fan.

There’s more on his pictures than his private life, an AWOL Mia Farrow refused or refusing the chance to give her side of the story.

But in terms of clips and interviews this is near definitive, Allen making up for his reticence over personal matters with frank thoughts on his hits and misses and intriguing insights into his working methods.
