Woody Allen

woody allenFor better or worse, Woody Allen’s been in the news these past few weeks.  His personal life has been all over social media and this past weekend he came out of seclusion to refute 20 year-old claims of abuse.  He received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Golden Globes.  His new film, Blue Jasmine has just released on DVD and most agree it’s his best work in years.  Cate Blanchett is nominated for an Oscar for her performance as Jasmine.

Boogie Nights 
Happiness
Flawless
Magnolia
Capote
The Savages 
Doubt
A Late Quartet
