Overview

Sam Girgus argues that Allen has consistently been on the cutting edge of contemporary critical and cultural consciousness. Allen continues to challenge notions of authorship, narrative, perspective, character, theme, ideology, gender and sexuality. This revised and updated edition includes two new chapters that examine Allen's work since 1992. Girgus thoughtfully asserts that the scandal surrounding Allen's personal life in the early 1990s has altered his image in ways that reposition moral consciousness in his work.

Don't be fooled by the title. This book lacked much of what I wanted to know about Woody Allen's films. I wanted referential information and facts about each film. Girgus just gave a tirade of his opinions. I'm no expert, but I can form opinions for myself. What I wanted was a information on the films, and I didn't find it in this book.
