Critic Reviews for Annie Hall

All Critics (66) | Top Critics (11)

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

Full Review… | March 3, 2015
Top Critic

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.

New York Daily News
Top Critic

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.

Time Out
Top Critic

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.

New Yorker
Top Critic

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.

Time Out
Top Critic

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.

Audience Reviews for Annie Hall


This romantic comedy classic changed games and defied genre conventions with its non-sequential narrative, anhedonic witticisms, metatheatrical antics, and pragmatic ode to human relationships. I don't really think the titular character is as ditzy as she's always described in synopses, nor do I think Diane Keaton's satisfactory performance was Oscar-worthy, but as a whole, "Annie Hall" is simply one of the best.

I guess I just don't like films with Woody Allen in them. I try to watch them, but he prattles on and on.
