Mia Farrow Tag

I have never been much of a Woody Allen fan and if you were to ask me why, I would respond with, “I don’t know.” Of the handful of Allen films I’ve seen — and I do really mean a handful, as I’ve only seen six — I’ve enjoyed them. I know that probably makes me a bad cinephile, and I have no real excuse for myself. I am going to be off work recovering from surgery for basically the entire month of December, so perhaps I will make it a project to have a marathon of Allen’s movies. I’ll add it to the marathon of Ingmar Bergman movies I have planned.

One of the Allen films I have seen, and absolutely love, is Hannah and Her Sisters (1986). In fact, of the few Allen movies I’ve watched, this one is probably my favorite. Incidentally, I recently heard actor/director/screenwriter Ed Burns reveal on the Filmspotting podcast that Hannah and Her Sisters is his favorite Allen movie, too, so I guess I’m in good company.

I will admit that I was a little hesitant to write about this film for Soundtrack Saturday, mostly because I know Allen has such a rabid fan base who would no doubt school me on my lack of Allen knowledge. But, after watching the film again and listening to the soundtrack, I knew I couldn’t pass it up.
