In an unprecedented television program, Woody Allen spoke to the camera for the first time about the entire range of his work, in an interview with Richard Schickel. But the presentation contained only a small fraction of the interview. This book reprints the complete conversation between the two men.
From the Publisher:
Woody Allen is a private person who talks about his work infrequently. So it was unprecedented when he recently spoke to the camera about the entire range of his work in an interview with Richard Schickel. Woody talked about how he makes films, why he does it, the roots of this passion in his early life, and his current thinking about the state of his art.
Woody Allen's career has been one of the most enduring and highly regarded among the pantheon of great film directors. Yet, although Allen can count himself among the most prolific and acclaimed American directors, the reclusive auteur allots little time to reflect publicly upon his amassed body of work. Thus, the 2003 book WOODY ALLEN A LIFE IN FILM is valuable not only for renowned film critic Richard Schickel's insights into Allen's impressive filmmaking career, but also for the inclusion of a rare, in-depth interview with the director himself. The book begins with a lengthy critical essay that paints a full and illuminating portrait of Allen through the lens of his experiences as a filmmaker. Schickel, a longtime film critic for TIME magazine, artfully deconstructs the different periods of the director's career. Beginning with the lighthearted slapstick comedies of the late 1960s and '70s, Schickel progresses to the elegant, insightful studies of human nature and relationships from the 1970s and '80s. The experiments with different genres that characterized Allen's '90s oeuvre are also highlighted, along with a look at the playful comedies that distinguished his work in the early 21st century. The essay complements the second section of the book, titled "The Interview," a transcript of Schickel's 2002 interview--one of the longest on record--with the reticent director. Their mostly serious discussion spans Allen's career, while only briefly alluding to his scandalous personal life, allowing readers to gain an invaluable perspective on one of the most important artists in cinematic history.
