…and the quest to see everything

‘Does he play baseball,…’

‘…does he wear dresses?’

‘He doesn’t wear dresses. You’ll find out all the details when it’s your turn to see him.’

‘Don’t write this book, it’s a humiliating experience.’

‘It’s an honest account of our breakup.’

Meryl Streep looks so beautiful here in Manhattan, although a bit cold and mannered. I wonder what would have happened if Woody Allen had scooped her up and made her his muse for ten years.

  1. what a run this man had back then.
    to think that in a span of 9 years (77 to 86) he made at least five masterpieces and then what’s become of him now…
    maybe he should make Meryl his muse NOW?

  2. It’s probably too late, and I think they wouldn’t have been a good fit. Unless Woody made Bergmanesque films (a la Another Woman) for ten years. Actually, he should make those kinds of movies again to remind people he still can.

    Like if for some reason there was ever an abortion of a remake for Autumn Sonata, directed by Woody, Meryl as the Bergman role, Amy Adams for the Liv role. Perfect!

    • Yeah, I can’t see them being a good fit – but I do wish he’d rescue some older actors in need of great roles. I’d love for him to reteam with the likes of the Diannes (Wiest, Keaton).

  3. Wasn’t “September” a remake of “Autumn Sonata” though? Well, at least as far as Woody remakes would go.

    • Urgh I need to see that. The only Bergmanesque Allen film I’ve seen other than “Another Woman” is “Love and Death.”
