9781566636025: Woody Allen: A Life in Film

This book reprints a four-hour conversation between Mr. Schickel and Mr. Allen and includes a long essay of introduction by Mr. Schickel, which places Woody Allen's entire career in critical perspective, as well as a complete filmography. Readers will find Mr. Allen's reflections on his major preoccupations―the battle of the sexes; the conflict between reality and fantasy in his major films; mortality, religion, and the role that chance plays in the unfolding of our lives. The book also offers insights into Mr. Allen's working methods as a writer and the growth of his skills as a director.

About the Author:

Richard Schickel's most recent book is Good Morning, Mr. Zip Zip Zip, his memoir of growing up in the World War II years. A film critic for Time for many years, Mr. Schickel has written biographies of Clint Eastwood, Marlon Brando, James Cagney, D. W. Griffith, Cary Grant, and Walt Disney, as well as The Men Who Made the Movies, His Picture in the Papers, and Intimate Strangers, a pioneering study of celebrity. He also produces films for television. Mr. Schickel lives in Los Angeles.

Review:

...This book also offers new, tasty, nutritious stuff for Woody loyalists to savor. (Owen McNally Hartford Courant)

This is an urbane and readable work and will be of great interest to avid Allen fans... (Andrea Slonosky Library Journal)

Even those who have lost who have lost patience with Allen's recent efforts will want to read what he has to say about his 1970s masterworks. (Gordon Flagg Booklist)

As usual, Richard Schickel has nailed his subject, and this time his subject is a particularly hard one to nail. (Jeanine Basinger)

Witty, surprising, important (but never self-important), and―best of all―moving...a compact but very real treasure...graceful and perceptive...wonderful. (Steven Bach)

Clearly, Allen is comfortable talking to Schickel...a brisk read. (Chicago Tribune)

The author pleads a strong case that as a gifted writer and actor of limited range, Woody Allen deserves a more prominent position in the motion picture arts. (Foreword Reviews)

...Thoughtful, critical insights into Allen's screen works. (Newport News Press)

...Fascinating biography of a giant in film... (Forecast)

Schickel is a thoughtful observer and critic, a lively writer.... (Virginia Quarterly Review)
