    Started writing this and my it broke, so I'm lazy and will write a lot less.
    Not an excellent film or anything holy original, but I thought this was quite good. Allen does a lot of things you'd expect and that seem a bit unoriginal, but with great characters and dialogue it still feels fresh. The color grading and lighting I also loved.

    I can understand why some don't love this film, but when watching this film I will always be taken over by my past's child like gaze. When I was about six years old I discovered this film, and I owe so much to it. Early in my life it taught me that I loved film and what this medium of art can achieve. At such a young age I remember this film making me love, hate, and care…
