Jul 25, 2012Woody Allen is a true master of comedy. His dialogue, his timing, his delivery -- all are near-perfect. "Love and Death" represents one of his finer efforts. Plain and simple, it's quality filmmaking. You can tell that everyone involved is having fun with what they're doing. And even though its humor is smarter than most other films, most people will be able to find their footing. "Love and Death" is intelligent, well-directed and immensely quotable, and if you don't find yourself laughing at least once during its entirety, then you might not have a sense of humor.
Jul 23, 2012Absurdly brilliant! LOVE AND DEATH, is an extremely dark comedy from the manic mind of Woody Allen. I have to say that the ending to this movie, is one of my all-time favorites.Jason R Super Reviewer
Apr 21, 2012In this early Allen effort his love for the Marx Bros. (particularly Groucho) is worn on his sleeve and the picture is very reminiscent of Mel Brooks' own Twelve Chairs. Throw in a couple of 70's style psuedo-intellectual "conversations" ("I'm overwhelming you with my superiorocity!") and you have a fun, silly, younger Allen, not so impressed with himself yet, easier to relate to. He never finds anyone as good as he to play himself, we know, and his infatuation w/Keaton allows her Dumont-like status beside him.
Sep 06, 2011Watch this movie just for Diane Keaton. I noticed a couple of parallels to Annie Hall, which of course came after this and was a big improvement. Pretty funny stuff, but not as philosophically engaging as some of his later films.Dillon L Super Reviewer
