Kopple's discreet, quietly revelatory style creates a fine balance between public and private personae that veers more pointedly toward the personal in an incongruous but fascinating coda.
It provides some generous insights into his psychic background when his unsupportive parents greet him back in New York at the end.
It's hardly a revelation, but Allen emerges as genuinely neurotic. He's also funny.
In her unexpectedly delightful documentary about Woody Allen as jazz musician, Barbara Kopple demonstrates cinema verite at its most seductive.
Wild Man Blues has a tendency to become repetitious, especially during the final forty minutes.
[Kopple] might seem an unlikely choice for this material, but no doubt her track record gained Allen's trust.
The subject is Woody Allen, but anyone interested in his career as a writer, stand-up comedian, actor or filmmaker will learn little from Barbara Kopple's new documentary.
There's only one certain conclusion: Woody Allen finds it terrifically uncomfortable being Woody Allen.
Not quite the type of political punchiness one would expect from Kopple, but it does answer a lot of questions about Allen who obviously had a strong hand in the film's compilation.
Craftsmanship and wit are as present here as in [director Barbara Kopple's] more socially-minded, dramatic work.
Wonderful documentary, a rare look at the real Woody.
An interesting documentary covering a tour of Woody Allen's New Orleans Jazz band. If you enjoy the music, or are a fan of all things Woody, then you should give this one a rental. Others probably wouldn't enjoy it.
It's great to see Woody in his natural habitat - his neurotic tendencies, his anxiety, and most particularly, his love for Soon-Yi. She's a lot smarter and prettier and nicer and more talkative than I envisioned her. I totally get why this film was made, but it doesn't seem like a PR stunt. It seems to genuinely want to answer some hidden question.
