Woody Allen's Manhattan

"He adored New York City… He romanticized it all out of proportion." Park Circus and MGM have unveiled a brand new trailer for the 4K digital re-release this year of Woody Allen's seminal romantic comedy classic Manhattan, which first opened in 1979. It didn't win any Oscars, but it did win Best Film at the BAFTAs. Woody Allen also stars in this, along with Diane Keaton, Michael Murphy, Mariel Hemingway, Meryl Streep, Anne Byrne, Karen Ludwig and Michael O'Donoghue. The 96-minute film has been carefully restored to 4K, and will be released in NYC first, which is fitting considering it's all about a love for NYC. Ebert wrote in a review from 2001 that "it's more subtle, more complex, and not about love, but loss."

Here's the new re-release trailer for Woody Allen's Manhattan, direct from YouTube (via Indiewire):

Woody Allen's Manhattan

In Manhattan, Isaac Davis is a divorced writer of TV shows unhappy with his job. His ex-wife left him to live with another woman and is writing a book about her relationship with Isaac. He is currently dating a 17-year-old high-school student, Tracy, who is in love with him, but he does not like her. When he meets Mary Wilkie, the mistress of his married best friend Yale, he starts to fall for her instead. Manhattan was written and directed by filmmaker Woody Allen (the 9th film he directed), and first released in 1979. It also played at the Cannes Film Festival that year. The film earned two Academy Award nominations - for Best Screenplay, and Best Actress in a Supporting Role. Park Circus and MGM will re-release the 4K digital version of Manhattan in select theaters starting March 10th; also in the UK. It plays first at Film Forum.

    It's been a long time since I watched this one. A good reminder. But what makes me think more is not the work but the author. He got lost in his ideas with time and I can understand that. However, after 1990s, this film looks more and more like his life ...

    I've only seen one Woody Allen film, Midnight in Paris, which I quite enjoyed. He's just never been on my radar, for no particular reason. Been interested in Annie Hall because I hear Diane Keaton is adorable, but I don't think I've heard of this one.

      Jeez, grim...we have you been, man? Hall and Manhattan are two of his very best films. Much better than Midnight in Paris or any of his other films over the last decade or so. Best to check out both these films. Manhattan was shot by the great DP Gordon Willis who did the Godfather films...but in this instance he shot black and white and it's gorgeous photography. I like both of these films of his, but my favorite, still to this day, is Stardust Memories...although I recognize that it might not be to everyone's tastes, but it sure and still is to mine. Cheers!

        I know man, it's weird. I've always felt out of the loop for never watching any of his movies. I'll be sure to check these out at some point. Cheers!
        • The only Allen movie I've ever watched are Take the Money and Run and Sleeper. I didn't hate them. I didn't love them either. The guy is maybe talented, but he's not my cup of tea.
          • grimjob
            Fair enough, I've yet to determine if I like him or not. But he's such a big part of cinema I feel like I owe it to myself to check him out.
          • Bo
            You do and good for you for wanting to check him out. I mentioned a few more of his films I liked in my above response to tarek. I'd suggest those as well. Cheers!
          • grimjob
            Duly noted, thank you sir.

            tarek, those are stupid movies and one shouldn't judge Allen because of either one of them. Although lots of people liked those silly things along with Bananas. I wasn't one of them. He's not my cup of tea anymore, but I liked Annie Hall, Manhattan, Stardust Memories, and even his Bergmanesque Interiors, where he got real serious. He also did a really good film with Gena Rowlands as the lead. I can't recall the name of it and I'm too lazy to look for it was a pretty good movie. He doesn't make very good movies anymore. Not to me at least. But he did. He did, once upon a time. Cheers! Woman is the title of the film he did with the wonderful Gena Rowlands. Check it out. I ain't sayin' it'll be your cup of tea as I might not be...Annie Hall is the one most everyone likes...and with good's pretty good. A long time ago through. Later gator.
    • Midnight in Paris was, in this Woody fan's view, a pretty fine film. As was Vicky Christina Barcelona, another very good one from this later period. But: Annie Hall is a total joy and yes, you will fall in love with Diane Keaton. Hannah and Her Sisters is my personal favorite - a perfect movie, in my biased view. Finally, Another Woman is an often-overlooked gem. Go seek and and enjoy.
      • grimjob
        Never heard of Another Woman. Appreciate the suggestions.
    Looks like a stunning resto.

    You're welcome, tarek. The ones I mentioned, in my opinion, are certainly much better than 99% of the movies being made today, that's for sure. You take care too. Peace.
