Top 10 Woody Allen Movies

10. Sleeper

After being cryogenically frozen for 200 years and then thawed out, the owner of a health food store runs amok in a futuristic society with gigantic fruit and orgasm machines. Diane Keaton was his lover at one time throughout the 1970s she continued to be his leading lady. Woody Allen's creativity and imaginative 1970's charm proves to create one of his most memorable movies and characters of him as a robot servent.

9. Manhattan

A very simple love story between a man and a woman and also the same man and a girl. The reason why myself as well as many, many people adore this picture is just that, the picture. Gordon Willis produced the cinematography in this film which was absolutely breathtaking and it is a real crime that he wasn't recognized for it at the 1979 Academy Awards. Even though every one of his movies deals with love, betrayal of love and love making, we all know that Woody Allen's true romanace is with the City of New York. Recently he's been experimenting in Barcelona, Venice, Paris, Rome and other romantic European destinations, but New York is his first love, and you know what they always say about your first love...it's what every other there after is compared to....Ahhh, Manhattan.

8. Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Sex* but were afraid to ask

Another one of Woody Allen's crazy movies in which anything can happen, also happens to have the longest title. And the title sure does fit the movie. This is Allen's only non-plot movie, although some of his others do meander off into different subplots and tangets, this one really has no plot, other than the general point the title tries to make. The short stories in this one includes Burt Reynolds and gigantic boob, life size sperm scared of being shot out onto the ceiling, Gene Wilder's sheep obsession and Woody Allen's very long attempt at achieving female orgasm. From a man who is pretty much the opposite of Sexy, the definition of the anti-James Bond, Woody Allen produces the ultimate guide book to sexual experimentation.

7. Bullets over Broadway

Set in the 1920s; Woody Allen's romantic dream era, confirmed in Midnight in Paris, is about a struggling writer who's given the opportunity of a lifetime, to write and direct a play on broadway. There's only one catch, the man who is willing to financially back the play is one of the most well known mobsters in New York and will only do it if his talentless conceded girlfriend is given the leading role. John Cusack who was also in Allen's Shadow's and Fog plays the Woody Allen character; a neurotic writer who cheats on his spouse. Cusack hits it dead on with his reactions to craziness and his shouts out the window of being a Broadway sell out whore. Usually gangster movies have a real villain, but since it's Woody Allen, who you'd think would be the villain turns out to be quite the writer himself and does end up killing someone but the last person you'd expect.

6. The Purple Rose of Cairo

Also listed in my Top 10 Movies about Movies, The purple Rose of Cairo is a gem of storytelling art. In the 1930s, a lonely and battered house wife seeks refuge in a movie theater over and over, every night for what seems like an eternity until the lead character in the movie can't take it anymore and walks off the screen. Woody Allen exercising his muscle of awesomeness in his brain when the characters still up on the screen complain that the Jeff Daniels character has always been full of himself and aren't surprised that he pulled such a selfish act. The even greater part of the film is when we see just how honest and intelligent she is when she's given the choice between the character and the actor who plays him.

The top 5 Woody Allen movies, and other articles such as the top 10 movies about movies and Nerd Movies are just a few of soon to be long list of Top 10 Movies. Suggestions for more Top 10 Lists are also encouraged!!!
