Arrow Academy’s second Woody Allen collection covers 1979-85, during which he made many of his best-loved films.  These begin with Manhattan, a sublime Gershwin-scored Panavision love-letter to his home city, and end with The Purple Rose of Cairo, a wistfully affectionate romance about the cinema’s past that also doubles as a hilariously fantastical farce.

In between there’s the Felliniesque, fascinatingly self-analytical Stardust Memories; the bucolic romp A Midsummer Night’s Sex Comedy (the first of thirteen films starring Mia Farrow); the technically and conceptually astonishing Zelig, in which a “human chameleon” bears witness to many of the 1920s and 30s cultural and political upheavals; and the perfectly-formed Broadway Danny Rose, a comedy about a theatrical agent who gets mixed up with the Mob.

By now, Allen was working with a tightly-knit regular team: cinematographer Gordon Willis, designer Mel Bourne, editor Susan E. Morse and producer Robert Greenhut worked on nearly all of these, achieving an enviable consistency of style at a time when American cinema was moving away from the notion of the auteur director.

Brilliant Woody Collection

I’m so grateful I can get these wonderful films on blu-ray. They are Woody at his peak. With all the absurdity around the great man’s reputation in the US, many aren’t available here and probably never will be. Get them while you can! I bought a multi-region blu ray player just so I could enjoy these and they look very good in HD, although I don’t think any remastering has gone on.
