I’ve never made a secret here (why would I?) that I’m a Woody Allen fan (I don’t care about the rumors out there about his personal life, not getting into that—OK?). I think I have just about all his movies on my computer. I have two favorites—“Annie Hall,” and “Manhattan” in that order. My third favorite may surprise you.
“Deconstructing Harry” came out in 1997. I was living in Clifton’s Gaslight District at the time and I remember walking over to the Esquire Theatre on Ludlow one afternoon to watch it. I loved it—have seen it many times since.
Harry Block is a writer who’s a bit of a mess. If you’re interested, you can click here to get the plot of the movie.
I don’t think the movie was a big hit, but it hit a nerve with me. It’s kind of a mean little movie and I like that. What does that say about me?
The clip down below, in my view, is one of the funniest scenes ever in a Woody Allen film—Harry Block and “The Affair.” Woody and Kirstie Alley are great together. Warning: it’s laced with bad language.
I shall return here on Wednesday.
