In case you missed it, Part 1 of Woody Allen: A Documentary is available to watch online here.  I enjoyed it, and I don't think you need to be a fan of WA to enjoy it as well.

Part 2 was pretty average.  Near-skippable.  More talking heads with the performers of his films rather than WA.

Yeah. There was a little about process, but mostly, it just felt like a retrospective. Too bad, as the film started out more as a comprehensive portrait of the man.

I don't know, I enjoyed hearing eighty different people say that Woody Allen's ability to compartmentalize problems like him and Soon-Yi being together.

Seriously, though, I chose Annie Hall. Purple Rose and Manhattan are right behind it.

I have only seen 2 (Sleeper and Everything...) and not impressed, have not had any interest in seeing any others since.

I'm a youngun who is just discovering Woody, and I've only seen five (!) of his films.

Annie Hall and Hannah and Her Sisters are my favorites, so far. Manhattan, Manhattan Murder Mystery, and Midnight in Paris are all very good films, but rank far behind the greatness of the other two.
