Gordon WIllis' New York: BROADWAY DANNY ROSE

Sadder than Manhattan, the elegiac and nostalgic Broadway Danny Rose is perhaps Allen's finest underrated film. Allen and Willis ping-pong from the city's iconic Broadway haunts, where washed-up comedians gather for coffee, to New Jersey, where madcap romance looms in the shape of Mia Farrow's giant, Mob Wives-eque sunglasses. A caper, a comedy, a mournful portrait of success and failure; a beautiful film.


  1. ugh I love this movie. I think this is Woody's best performance. probably Mia's best as well.
