PORTRAYAL

One of the most hailed and critically acclaimed of contemporary American filmmakers. Woody Allen made a name for himself in the 1970s as the spokesman for young, urban intellectuals, discussing relationships, sex and existential issues. His neurotic, quirky real-life persona would more often than not take hold of his onscreen characters. And through incisive, intelligent and often self-ironic comments on life, Allen brought life to talky, charming films such as Annie Hall (1977) and Manhattan (1979). His anti-Hollywood, philosophical, heavily intellectual being has made him a figure that has been loved and hated by the public, and his films, while constantly receiving praise from the critics, haven't always been the most profitable.
