Robert B. Weide | US | 2012 | 113mins | Documentary with Woody Allen, Diane Keaton, Martin Scorsese, Penelope Cruz, John Cusack, Scarlett Johansson, Sean Penn, Mariel Hemingway.
“On the one hand, he’d be brilliant and his insights were amazing, but on the other hand: he’d be an idiot.”
This fascinating documentary chronicles the life and work of the iconic, vastly prolific director adored for classics such as Annie Hall and Manhattan as well more recent triumphs Midnight in Paris and Vicky Cristina Barcelona.
Featuring extensive interviews with the normally reclusive Allen, Weide also interviews an array of luminaries including Martin Scorsese, Diane Keaton, Penelope Cruz, Sean Penn and Mariel Hemingway to gain insight into this most gloriously idiosyncratic of filmmakers.
“Robert Weide’s illuminating, amusing and entertaining documentary offers a rare insight into a director usually very reticent about discussing his work” Screen International
“[...] intimate, affectionate and warmly celebratory [...] I watched this engaging film with a great big smile on my face.” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
