Pinhole Movie Reviews

Annie Hall by tincolor

Woody Allen and Diane Keaton (AKA Annie Hall) have broken up, but just went wrong? That’s the basic plot of Woody Allen’s first “serious” film. If you’ve never seen this movie, watch it before you do anything else. It’s not only one of the best Woody Allen films, it’s also just an amazing film. It’s a blend of comedy, romance and drama that still feels unique today. It’s been a while since I last saw this film, and I completely forgot about how wacky some of it gets. There’s the animated sequence in the middle, and then all of these times that Woody Allen pleads with the camera for sympathy and a totally zany cameo by Christopher Walken that I had completely forgotten about. Anyway, great film. Required Viewing.

I’ve been watching a lot of lengthy movies lately, all of them featuring Diane Keaton!  In this one, she stars as a would be journalist, circa WWI, who falls in love with Warren Beatty.  Or maybe the movie is really about Beatty, a socialist writer who pens a famous book about the Russian Revolution then confronts the grim realities of Soviet Russia.  Well,  the movie is long enough to include both stories — and supposedly they’re both true.  There’s a great supporting cast (including Jack Nicholson as Eugene O’Neil.)  It’s the only movie to be nominated for all four Academy Awards for acting — other than Silver Linings Playbook. Anyway, Worth watching.


The Godfather by tincolor
Al Pacino and that Brando guy play cops and robbers for a bunch of hours. For a movie that is 40 years old, The Godfather doesn’t particularly feel like it’s 40 years old. But what was most surprising to me was just how young Al Pacino looks. Worth Watching.
