Woody Allen’s cure for the winter blues

Posted at 12:15 pm, December 29, 2011 in Arts & Entertainment

ZeligWhat better way to spend a gloomy, icy, economically unstable January than in the cosy environs of the BFI Southbank, catching up on all those great Woody Allen comedies? None of that doomy, gloomy Bergmanesque ‘Interiors’ business here, just the ‘early, funny ones’ like ‘Sleeper’, ‘Love and Death’ and ‘Annie Hall’, his terrific run of ’80s genre experiments like ‘Zelig’ (above), ‘The Purple Rose of Cairo’ and ‘Broadway Danny Rose’, and his peerless return to form in the 1990s with the likes of ‘Husbands and Wives’, ‘Bullets Over Broadway’, ‘Manhattan Murder Mystery’ and the magnificently scabrous ‘Deconstructing Harry’. The season kicks off on Jan 1.
