For the inaugural Director Appreciation Week here at matt’s nerdy life, we decided to focus on perhaps the most prolific of American auteurs, the inimitable Woody Allen. However, instead of trailing through Allen’s back-catalogue to the early seventies, the focus will be upon Allen’s more recent European excursions. Over the past decade or so, the director has zigzagged across Europe from Barcelona to Paris to Rome and finally back to France to visit the beautiful Riviera. In celebration of the upcoming release of the Allen’s 46th film, Cafe Society (trailer below), featuring Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart and Steve Carrell, we analyse some of his stunning past work.
The line-up is as follows:
Monday 2nd May: Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008)
Wednesday 4th May: Midnight in Paris (2011)
Friday 6th May: To Rome with Love (2012)
Sunday 8th May: Magic in the Moonlight (2014)
Cafe Society (2016) Trailer:
