Woody Allen’s new film Blue Jasmine, about a New York housewife in crisis, looks like his best in a long time. Annie Hall and Manhattan are old favourites of mine that his latest films (bar Midnight in Paris) don’t seem to come close to. If you’re tempted by the trailer you can watch it at the Exeter Phoenix or the Picturehouse.
ps. Woody is thinking of returning to stand up! Here’s a little flashback to his comedy in 1965.
