A black and white movie of black and white quality
February 21, 2004
This is Allen's most mellifluous, fervent dialogue with each line pierced and tinged with biting hilarity.

The genius of Allen's approach is to present the real Manhattan in such a way that you realize the Hollywood Manhattan is actually there.

Manhattan depicts urban trippers whose appetite for variety propels them from one person or job or dream to another.

One of Allen's three or four best films, it's a tender, wistful romantic comedy that uses NYC to breathtaking effect.

Allen had forsworn the glib one-liner and spent more time developing well-rounded characters.

Mr. Allen's progress as one of our major filmmakers is proceeding so rapidly that we who watch him have to pause occasionally to catch our breath.

It might be the most charming portrait of New York ever immortalized on film.

Amongst Allen's Very Best
August 8, 2002
One of Woody's best, this is a good place to start if you're unfamiliar with his body of work. It's funny, it's dramatic, and it's certainly the best looking film he's ever made. The opening sequence is tremendous.

The layers of self-awareness and self-referentiality at the heart of this film are dizzying.

Woody Allen's best movie? It has my vote.

If Manhattan was only a romantic comedy, it would be a very good one, but the fact that the movie has so much more ambition than the 'average' entry into the genre makes it an extraordinary example of the fusion of entertainment and art.

The film perfectly captured the insecurity of late 1970s America.
