I'm not saying it's a completely bad movie. Sure there are some memorable scenes in it and good performances by actually all actors. And I understand some people really can connect with this portrayal of English school life in the sixties. But if you haven't been there and done it, it can turn out as a bit of a disappointment.
There are two different story lines, which come together in the final part. The first story is about an ageing actor whose career is finished, played by Boris Karloff. As a last publicity stunt he appears at a Drive-In where the two stories come together.
The second story is about a young man who gets amazingly violent and after shooting his wife and mother, roams the city to shoot more people, until Karloff stops him in the end.
This is a must see for every (sixties) thriller enthusiast!
I don't think this is a completely bad movie. Some of the scenes are quite original, s.a. the scene were Alvy's having dinner with Annie's parents. But overall I think Annie Hall did not deserve all the praise and credit it got.
Apart from the nice scenery, the entire movie is a failure. The plot is average, the characters are absolutely flat and Jack's constant swearing (which annoyed me so much I kept track), didn't give me the slightest feeling I was watching anything worthwhile.
Do yourself a favor and skip this movie, if you can!
The movie is not completely true to the book, but that won't bother any serious horror enthusiast.
This is true horror. It doesn't need the gore and stuff they use in horror movies today to make things 'scary'.
Simply a must-see!
Accompanied by some other great movie stars, like Edward G. Robinson and Yves Montand, in the supporting roles, this movie is well worth watching. A typical '50s style comedy/drama.
The film doesn't deal with racial issues as it's predecessor does. The plot is quite nice and it includes some very good scenes, for instance a car chase and a shootout in a parking garage.
A good crime movie.
Not Bardot's best movie but certainly worth watching.
There are more motives in this movie, which the youth of today can surely identify themselves with. I think 'Rebel Without A Cause' is a great movie and James Dean gives a very good performance.
