Call me a complete cinematic idiot, but what movie is this?

This is "A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy".
You have to watch it, it's beautiful!

Michael Parsons said...

I will....although I am not a woody allen fan when he is in the movie.

Jose said...

...wait a minute, so does that mean you don't like "Annie Hall"?

(cowers in preparation for the attack)
No I did not like 'Annie Hall'. Even tried with 'Manhattan'. The man just skitches me out completely.
If I do not have to look at him I usually love his films. 'Bullets over Broadway'I adore. 'Radio Days' is lovely. However to be honest....I have hardly seen any of his films. Here is the list of ones I have not seen. Judge me as you wish!

Vicky Cristina Barcelona
Cassandra's Dream
Scoop
Melinda and Melinda
Anything Else
Hollywood Ending
The Curse of the Jade Scorpion
Celebrity
Deconstructing Harry
Everyone Says I Love You

Husbands and Wives
Alice
Crimes and Misdemeanors

Interiors
Love and Death
Sleeper
Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex * But Were Afraid to Ask

Hahaha no attack don't worry (although I'm judging you in my mind).
Have you ever wondered if Woody can become one of those love/hate things you were talking about?
After reading your list and wondering what movie to recommend to you in which I think Allen gives a great performance I really don't know what to say (maybe Stardust Memories or Broadway Danny Rose)because he is such an acquired taste.
While most people say he plays himself in every movie, truth is he doesn't, but he does...it's complicated. But don't listen to me as I'm biased. Everything Woody gives me well...wood.
