Bergman before Scorsese.
I've seen a fair few Bergman movies, and I've thought all of them were amazing. But I don't know if I can make it through a Bergman marathon without killing myself. I felt pretty gross after Persona (incredible, by the way), I can tell you that. I'll get through him eventually.

Hey wait... So, top five best Allen movies?
There aren't any real surprises in my top five Woody Allen movies, but there are some honorable mentions that no one really talks about.

The Top Five:

5. Love and Death
4. Bullets over Broadway
3. Sleeper
2. Manhattan
1. Annie Hall (of course)

Very good ones that no one ever talks about:

- The Other Woman
- Take the Money and Run
- Broadway Danny Rose
- September

I find it very difficult not to mention some of my personal favorites--films that aren't perfect, but that I have a strong connection to for one reason or another: Husbands and Wives, Zelig, Match Point, and especially Stardust Memories. In the end, any movie directed by Woody Allen is better than most other movies--unless it has Tiffany Amber Thiessen in it.

That was my argument to my friend while we were on a movie going tear. I said that his newest movie "Scoop" would be better than anything else we could have seen. My friend disagreed so we ended up seeing "Stick It", "The Ant Bully", and "Lady in the Water." Who cares anyway?

Hey wait... So, WORST Allen movie?

He didn't direct it, but What's New, Pussycat? was unbearable. Worst he directed is probably . . . Hollywood Ending (it had Tiffany Amber Theissen in it). Also not great: Shadow and Fog and Celebrity. There are others that aren't brilliant, of course, but these stand out as significantly sub-par.

Hollywood Ending was ok, but Small Time Crooks was pretty good, I thought..
