Allen's imaginative, often avant-garde approach to the material goes a long way towards compensating for a decidedly uneven atmosphere...

I think It's his best picture so far, and I hope that audiences will enjoy his drily aggressive, despairingly narcissistic humour as much as I did.

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.

Although Woody Allen had still to acquire great technical strength as a film-maker, this was the movie where he found his own singular voice, a voice that echoes across events with a mixture of exuberance and introspection.

It's a testament to the timelessness of Annie Hall that most of its references to pop culture or current events are unsuccessful in dating the film.

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.

Annie Hall, for all its vagaries, is a funny, often touching, sometimes astute picture.

Woody Allen's classic comedy has one opening scene after another, never seeming to run short of prologues and prefaces.

Annie Hall expanded Woody Allen's canvas to incorporate real wisdom alongside the punchlines.

Many things mark Annie Hall's place in cinema history, but none of them are the reason you should see this movie. That would be the humour, poignancy and acute observation contained in each and every frame.

In Annie Hall, Allen again writes, directs and stars with Diane Keaton in a remarkable recreation of a spent love affair, which is both sad and hysterically funny.

Seeing it again for the first time in many years, I'm struck by how perfect it seems.

A funny film, and it's fresh even today, though it's not a knee-slapper. Rather, it's a shrug-your-shoulder-and-grin kind of movie.

Funny movie about relationships. Not for kids.

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.

Woody Allen's best work.
