"Woody Allen on Woody Allen is a unique self-portrait of this uncompromising filmmaker that offers a revealing account of his life and work. In a series of rare, in-depth interviews, Allen brings us onto the sets and behind the scenes of all his films." "Woody Allen on Woody Allen is punctuated with his memories and opinions: afternoon movie-watching while growing up in Brooklyn; anecdotes about the film industry; discussions of favorite films, most inspirational actresses, most revered cinematographers; his love of jazz; his fascination with the city of New York. From his youthful interest in the nonsensical surrealism of Charlie Chaplin and the Marx Brothers to the poetic lyricism of Ingmar Bergman, the conversations in Woody Allen on Woody Allen reveal the broad influences of Woody Allen's eclectic vision and bring him closer, in all his vulnerable complexity, than ever before."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

If you are looking for a funny book, or a biography of Woody Allen, you will be disappointed. If you are looking for a book that analyzes Allen's movies and his thinking behind each movie, this is an excellent book. It's almost like a textbook about the craft of movie making. The book is literally a 400 page interview with Allen, talking about each of the many movies he has made. It's interesting, but in an academic way.
