Perhaps the best remembered of Woody Allen’s “early, funny ones”, Bananas is about as far from Blue Jasmine as you can get, back when he was angling for Marx Brothers and Monty Python comparisons instead of Oscar nods and critical acclaim.
Allen plays Fielding Mellish, a gawky office stooge who joins a South American revolution to impress a girl – and soon finds himself in charge of a small island nation.
The screwball gags come thick and fast as Mellish takes on American foreign policy, show trials and sexual inadequacy armed with Looney Tunes slapstick and deadpan Hebrew puns – it’s Allen at his silly best.
