42-year-old Manhattan native Isaac Davis has a job he hates, a 17-year-old girlfriend he doesn't love, and a lesbian ex-wife who's writing a tell-all book about their marriage. Living vicariously through the protagonist of his debut novel, but struggling to find personal or professional fulfilment of his own, Isaac quits his job as a television writer and begins a relationship with his best friend's mistress, setting him off on a neurosis-riddled journey of self-discovery and self-sabotage.
Shot in ravishing black & white and in Scope by the great Gordon Willis (Annie Hall, all three Godfathers, etc.), and backed by an all-Gershwin score, this is one of the greatest odes to New York, with a final shot evocative of Chaplin’s City Lights.
“Allen’s best film: the most grown-up, most technically accomplished, most securely pitched.” – Foster Hirsch
