Each year I present to you with my top 10 films in which Woody Allen had some participation. I have done this for three years now and I expect to continue going deeper. This is the first edition of the list in which I’ve actually seen practically every movie he ever directed, and many of the films in which he acted and most of those who he has written. All that rests is some obscure films that I want to check out so I can start my personal project towards a Woody Allen canon special in this blog. The films that I haven’t found yet are: Don’t Drink the Water (1969 edition), Men of Crisis: The Harvey Wallinger Story (1971, supposedly available in some TV museums), The Concert for New York City (2001, the whole shebang, not only his short Sounds from the Town I love), Paris-Manhattan (2012, french comedy where he has a cameo and is inspired by him). So, if anyone knows something about these films or any of the numerous short films that were based on his short stories, please contact me in the comments or via email, don’t worry, just comment and I’ll email you.
So, without further ado, my top 10 Woody Allen films.
