Woody Allen has carved out a unique place for himself in American movies, becoming our national
auteur as well as the most prolific director in the country, and creating a singular world with
each film he has released since his first movie in 1969. Foster Hirsch analyzes and celebrates
that world in this expert study of the themes, visual style, and acting in each of Allen's films.
With the addition of a new introduction and chapter covering the eleven movies Allen has made in
the last decade, from Alice to
The Curse of the Jade Scorpion,
this is a vital book for Allen fans and students of film alike.
A professor of Film at Brooklyn College, Foster Hirsch is the author of fifteen
books on film and theater,
including the classic The Dark Side of the Screen: Film Noir. He lives in New York City.
