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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A touching and hilarious love story that is Allen's most three-dimensional film to date.

Visually and structurally it's a mess, but many of the situations are genuinely clever, and there are plenty of memorable gags.

If you can forgive the fact that it's a ragbag of half-digested intellectual ideas dressed up with trendy intellectual references, you should have a good laugh.

There will be discussion about what points in the film coincide with the lives of its two stars, but this, I think, is to detract from and trivialize the achievement of the film, which, at last, puts Woody in the league with the best directors we have.

Watching it again, 25 years after its April 1977 premiere, I am astonished by how scene after scene has an instant familiarity.
