About Love and Death: Laugh for laugh, Woody Allen’s funniest film. Who else could derive a zany comedy from narrative elements of Russian literature and bring it off without an ounce of pretension? Love and Death demonstrates the Wood man’s absolute mastery of all comedic styles from slapstick to literate satire, incorporating shout outs and tributes to film icons as diverse as Bergman and Eisenstein to Charlie Chaplin and the Marx Brothers. A rich, hilarious comedy with perfect pitch by one of our greatest filmmakers, co-starring Diane Keaton in a brilliant comedic performance that pre-dates her Academy Award winning turn in “Annie Hall”. And the whole thing times in at a brisk 85 minutes, which is astonishing considering the ground he manages to cover. – D.O.

Cash bar, light snacks (including popcorn!), free parking right outside!
