Annie Hall is still my favourite movie. I watched it again last night and it’s as wonderful as ever. It’s funny and clever, plus every time I see it I want to start dressing like Diane Keaton. I also want to start saying “la-di-da” all the time. And, most importantly I want to sing ‘Old Times’ like she does in the movie. Maybe I’ll fit it in when I start doing some shows. I expect someone to hold me to that! It’s the sweetest, funniest movie. Please, please, please watch it if you haven’t seen it..
Speaking of other good films… I got to see a rare print of a movie directed by Paul Newman late last year when I was in Paris doing some travelling. There are some lovely little old cinemas in the Latin Quarter and they were having a tribute to Paul Newman after he’d recently died. (I got to see a few Woody Allen classics too). Anyway, the film was called ‘The Effect Of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds’ and stars Joanne Woodward. If you ever get a chance to see it, I thought it was really great. It’s a play written by Paul Zindel. Anyway, there’s the film reviews for today.
