#656. Manhattan (1979)
Why It's In The Book: "Manhattan is the rapturous high point of Woody Allen's on-screen love affair with New York City and even opens like an expressive Valentine, with an affectionate montage of city images." -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
"How stimulating was it to hear chatter about art, of ideas, of grandiose philosophies, of life and love. It’s like fireworks inside my head (to the tunes of Gershwin, of course)."
Johnlgilpatrick - 9/10
"Manhattan is Woody Allen's love letter to New York. It’s also a complex and realistic love story that’s beautifully filmed, well-acted, and wonderfully written."
The Mad Hatter - 9/10
"New York was different animal in the days of the film. Tougher, dirtier, more dangerous, and more passionate. Nowadays, tourists rule the roost in Times Square and the crowd at Yankee Stadium doesn't cheer quite so loud. It might be more appealing for the population on the whole, but the cost in character would easily leave people like Isaac and Mary waxing poetic on the loss of their city's soul. New York might still be around, but MANHATTAN is gone."
Adolytsi - 8/10
"A great inclusion to Woody Allen's filmography, and a standout comedy with dry wit and a sharp tongue. Dunno if it's really a must see, but it's not one to disappoint if you do."
"Woody Allen is a quite fascinating director. He never strays too far from a general way of doing things, but each of his films is unique and distinct. Manhattan is no different."
"Manhattan may not be the greatest of Allen’s films, but it is unquestionably one of his best and worthy on its own merits."
alfindeol - 7/10
"Manhattan may be Allen's least annoying work."
Fey - 7/10
"Generally watching a Woody Allen film makes me want to drop kick a toddler. This one however, was not half bad."
The Movie Mistress - 7/10
"I guess I'm not a purist, but I really prefer Woody Allen's darker side. I have a weird obsession with Match Point, and while I appreciate movies like Annie Hall and Manhattan, they just don't do it for me."
Simon Columb - 7/10
"Throwing away London for this silly man [Woody Allen] who, even she should know, is too old for her."
Univarn - 7/10
"Yet Manhattan is by no means a comedy. There's a few good laughs, but for the most part it's an analysis. Here is where we get into some rocky regions."
Siochembio - 5/10
"In Manhattan, Allen made a drop dead gorgeous film with a brilliant score and phenomenal lighting, filled with the most obnoxious characters imaginable."
