Today is the 85th anniversary of a genius in the matter of the filmmakers.
He surely belongs to one of the promoters of comedy movies with a touch of intelligence.
He might not be as popular with some people as it used to be at the time, because of some rumours, but I consider him as a great director and filmmaker in the history of films.
His some of Masterworks: Manhattan, Annie Hall, Hannah and her Sisters, the Purple Rose of Cairo, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Radio Days, Crimes and Misdemeanors, Stardust Memories…. etc, etc
And he’s also a great writer, let’s have some of his quotes:
The heart wants what it wants. There’s no logic.
If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans.
Life is divided into the horrible and the miserable.
Tradition is the illusion of permanence.
Not only is there no God, but try getting a plumber on weekends.
It’s not that I’m afraid to die, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.
My one regret in life is that I am not someone else. Life is full of misery, loneliness, and suffering – and it’s all over much too soon.
I’d never join a club that would allow a person like me to become a member.
I love all of his movies though, one of them lies on my heart: Radio Days: I can remember well how we as children, have listened to the radio so agitated, there weren’t any TVs yet! I think that the radios have inspired a lot of imagination.
Amarcord; I remember!
