Did You Know?

Mia Farrow demanded that no footage of herself be included in the documentary, not wanting to be further associated with Woody Allen in any way, since their bitter separation. Other than a few shots, her wish was obliged by the filmmakers.See more »

The very best format for interviews, 10 September 2003
Author: healer-2

It is so refreshing to see interview subjects speak for themselves.

It's bad enough having to suffer the interruptions of a Charlie Rose. It's worse to watch Barbara Walters listening to a magnetic figure like Fidel Castro, or Connie Chung listening to Marlon Brando.

The only shortcoming is that it's not twice as long.

As for it being only for film buffs, isn't that the audience anyway? Who gets lost in IMDb aside from film buffs?

I'm very happy to see Woody Allen speak for himself. We need more of this kind of material. Great stuff!
