(TOP 50 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Annie Hall [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Just to add my voice to the choir: Quite simply one of the best films
about romantic relationships ever made. Brilliantly written.
Brilliantly acted -- Diane Keaton is tremendous, the supporting cast is
full of gems and Allen himself takes the leap to present himself as a
real (if funny) human being and not a walking joke. And brilliantly
photographed by the great Gordon Willis of 'The Godfather' and many of
most important films of the 70s and 80s.

Wildly funny and ultimately heartbreaking. It's hard to imagine anyone
who has ever been in love, or struggled through grown-up relationships
NOT identifying with a lot of this film. I loved it in my late teens
when it first came out, and I love it even more 32 years later. Every
time I see it I notice different details, depending on my own current
life experiences. A film of enormous wit, humor, invention, and
understanding of the human heart. Its completely unique, playful and
idiosyncratic in style and approach, but that experimentation somehow
only makes it more accessible and universal. If you haven't seen it,
you owe yourself a try, even if you're not a Woody Allen 'fan'. And if
you saw it long ago, it may be time for another look.

Last, for some insane reason, the North American DVD is not
enhanced for 16x9 TVs, so a blu-ray upgrade was very sorely
needed.

And while the new blu-ray isn't quite reference quality (probably
due to the age and condition of the source materials) it does
look very, very good. A considerable step up from the DVD,
and very much worth it if you love the film. There's more
depth, sharpness, richness. More immediacy. Of course, some
things never change, and there are still no extras (sigh...)
but worth the up-grade none-the-less.

5.0 out of 5 stars Annie Hall, Aug. 15 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Annie Hall [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I suppose this is Woody Allen's most famous film of all, it was very enjoyable to see - also being on Blu-ray was especially nice and the order was shipped to me in advance of the projected time.
