It’s Episode 88! Olly Man (Modern Mann) and Alix Fox (Unexpected Fluids) to review Olly’s choice the 1975 Woody Allen comedy Love and Death.

Unbelievably Love and Death comes in between the bonkers Sleeper and largely considered his masterpiece, Annie Hall. The tail end of what is often referred to as his ‘earlier funnier ones’ and Love and Death is funny and silly.

This comes before what is now largely an unwatchable experience, Manhattan, and the obsession with girls clearly more than half Allen’s age. Did we mention it’s silly? So silly. Some of the visual gags and slapstick are still funny and it’s so ridiculous at times that it zips along quite nicely with its 95-minute run-time. It also features a perfect performance by Diane Keaton who gets as many of the brilliant gags and witty dialogue – which doesn’t happen much for actresses at all, let alone the 70s.

Scores

Love and Death is no Annie Hall and the scores reflect this, scoring 3.48 overall, it’s definitely more recommended than Manhattan.
