Review: Woody Allen's "The Purple Rose Of Cairo" (1985) Starring Mia Farrow And Jeff Daniels, Twilight Time Blu-ray Edition

“A Madcap Manhattan Weekend”

By Raymond Benson

Easily one of Woody Allen’s best films, The Purple Rose of Cairo, released in 1985, is a treat. It’s got laughs and pathos and is an excellent treatise on the conflict between fantasy and reality. Purple Rose represents a period when Allen was at the peak of his powers, when he was considered one of America’s greatest auteurs, and before there was the stigma of scandal hovering over his work. In 1985, Allen could do no wrong, and The Purple Rose of Cairo does everything right.

Allen doesn’t appear in the film. The picture belongs to Mia Farrow, and she delivers one of her best and most poignant performances as Cecilia, a meek and unhappy housewife/waitress in New Jersey during the Depression area. She is married to Monk (Danny Aiello), who is abusive and pays little attention to her needs. »

'Blood Simple' to Albert Brooks: Why Spring of 1985 was something special

20 February 2015 12:40 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are roughly 900,000 tribute pieces online this week about the 1985 John Hughes film "The Breakfast Club," and I understand the motivation. If you were the right age when the film was released (I was 15 at the time), that movie felt like a lightning bolt right to the face. Hughes treated teenagers like they were actual people with complex emotional lives worthy of respect, and while that would seem to be a logical approach to writing about any character, it certainly didn't feel average when he did it. He wrote about that secret world of teenagers with what felt like laser accuracy, and he basically created an entire industry of movies that tried to tap into that same audience. So certainly, there is much to celebrate when looking back at that particular film, but when I went to look at a list of the films that came out in 1985, a year »

Watch: AFI Awards 2014 Montage

12 January 2015 10:21 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The American Film Institute is probably best known for those lists of the 100 Greatest Movies of All Time (y'know... if it's an American production in some way). Well, every year they hold their own awards, because every group of people has to have awards. They recognize the ten best films (for this year, it's eleven due to a tie) and the ten best television programs of the year. There are not winners in these categories, but each one gets celebrated. On that front, I kind of like the AFI approach to awards. Along with the awards, AFI has put together this four and a half minute montage chronicling the last 120 years of film. Now, it would be ridiculous to cover every single year. Instead, they start with 1894's Strong Man and jump every ten years, showcasing films like Rear Window, The Godfather: Part II, Pulp Fiction, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind »
