#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Alvy Singer, a forty year old twice divorced, neurotic, intellectual Jewish New York stand-up comic, reflects on the demise of his latest relationship, to Annie Hall, an insecure, flighty, Midwestern WASP aspiring nightclub singer. Unlike his previous relationships, Alvy believed he may have worked out all the issues in his life through fifteen years of therapy to make this relationship with Annie last, among those issues being not wanting to date any woman that would want to date him, and thus subconsciously pushing those women away. Alvy not only reviews the many ups and many downs of their relationship, but also reviews the many facets of his makeup that led to him starting to date Annie. Those facets include growing up next to Coney Island in Brooklyn, being attracted to the opposite sex for as long as he can remember, and enduring years of Jewish guilt with his constantly arguing parents.
Plot: New York comedian Alvy Singer falls in love with the ditsy Annie Hall.

***Talky romcom with Woody Allen and Diane Keaton is consistently amusing***
A twice-divorced neurotic stand-up comedian in New York City (Woody Allen) details his perspective on life and his relationship with the scatterbrained Annie Hall (Diane Keaton).
The best movie I’ve seen by Woody Allen is the excellent “Match Point” (2005), but that was a crime drama/romance/thriller whereas a lot of his films are talky romantic dramedies, which is the case with “Annie Hall” (1977), winner of Best Picture and other awards at the AA. Was it worthy of all the accolades and does it hold up? Well, I laughed consistently if that tells you anything.
The movie uses techniques that were probably innovative when it was released in 1977, like Annie’s immaterial essence doing something else why her body’s in bed with Alvy (Allen). The dialogue-driven approach is refreshing (today, that is) and the way Alvy sometimes breaks the fourth wall is amusing. I also enjoyed seeing the mid-70s period in the background, like “Messiah of Evil” (1973) on the marquee and a billboard featuring DESTROYER-era KISS.
The film runs 1 hour, 33 minutes and was shot in New York City & Long Island and the Los Angeles area.
One of the most iconic Allen’s movie. Funny and quite believable but I think I was expecting something else.
I Forgot My Mantra….
Woody Allen’s seminal 1977 romantic comedy “Annie Hall” is not only laugh-out-loud funny (with some of the most quotable dialogue ever written for the screen…this is the “Casablanca” of comedies, folks) but also sweet and charming (due in large part because of Diane Keaton’s smashing performance as the title character, the flighty singer from Wisconsin with a quirky fashion sense and “neat” outlook on life) without ever turning trite or sappy like so many romantic comedies tend to do. Allen wisely deconstructed the genre with his non-linear story-line (something that was later done to even greater effect with a more recent and profound look at relationships, “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”) and charming little theatrical tricks like talking to the audience or pulling extras into the scene for their opinions on what’s been going on. It keeps the viewer off guard and allows for a free flow of comedic and philosophical ideas that might otherwise not have found their way into a more traditional film.
In his latter years, Allen’s best work has been when he is not part of the cast (my personal favorites being “Bulletts over Broadway,” “Sweet and Lowdown,” and the recent “Match Point”). “Annie Hall” was made in his heyday when he could still pull off playing a neurotic New York Jewish comedienne with charm and panache. There’s something innocent and benign about his obsessions here, as this was long before the Woody/Soon-Yi fiasco and the days of grossly miscasting himself against younger female co-stars. Yes, Mr. Allen has been artsier (witness “Manhattan”) and more satirical (witness “Zelig”) but here, with Diane Keaton as his muse, he was never more charming or funnier.
