j-deltoro asked: can you please tell me why I should like Woody Allen? I watch his movies & I just don't get the appeal and it makes me feel stupid because everyone talks about how great he is and I just don't see it! :(

if you can watch annie hall, manhattan, broadway danny rose and the purple rose of cairo and still not “get” woody allen, then give up. just lie to people when they ask you. i can’t help you. you will still probably be a wonderful human being with a lot of commendable qualities, but i won’t know what to do with you, cinematically speaking.
