Films: A is for...

Annie Hall

Woody’s masterclass in sticking little bits of angst-ridden stand-up routine together and doing little holes round the edges remains quite unlike any other comedy. Films where everything gets thrown into the pot score highly in this poll, and this is nothing if not eclectic. Everyone has their own favourites – the “where are they now?” classroom opener, a couple of guys named Cheech, Woody’s Coney Island family, lobster hotpot, the LA scenes, “you know nothing of my work”, etc. etc. But the quotable titbits all slot into a neatly observed story, and Allen and co. walk a fine line between straight acting and “funning up” the sketches.
