Meeting Woody Allen (1986)

*** (out of 4)

Jean-Luc Godard's documentary/interview with Woody Allen was filmed in NYC just after the release of Hannah and Her Sisters. Allen seems at ease with Godard speaking on a wide range of subjects from actors and their looks to silent films and so on. A lot of the talk deals with TV and how it has changed movies and those who watch them. There's also a great segment with Allen talking about how he hates all of his pictures. It was nice seeing a document of Allen from this time period but you've gotta remember that this is Godard so the film isn't just a straight interview. You've got all sorts of weird edits, a jazz soundtrack and various other things that can get frustrating but I guess that's just the director's trademark. The film runs 25-minutes and is worth watching for fans of the two legends.
