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.

There's only one certain conclusion: Woody Allen finds it terrifically uncomfortable being Woody Allen.

It's hardly a revelation, but Allen emerges as genuinely neurotic. He's also funny.

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.

[Kopple] might seem an unlikely choice for this material, but no doubt her track record gained Allen's trust.

No less than Madonna's Truth or Dare, Wild Man Blues proves the degree to which stars make a fiction of objectivity.
January 1, 2000
It is a most relaxed and enjoyable look at the neurotic comic, who appears to be no different in this documentary from the way he is in his films.
