At this year’s TCM Classic Film Festival, we had the chance to sit in on a few conversations with the legendary Max von Sydow. As part of the festival’s tribute to the actor, TCM screened two excellent von Sydow films – the existential and cinephile must-see “The Seventh Seal” and the 1970s spy thriller “Three Days of the Condor (both featured in our The Essentials: 5 Great Max von Sydow Performances). During the introductions to these films, the Swedish actor discussed his career, the directors he had worked with and what’s next on his plate with TCM hosts Ben Mankiewicz and Robert Osborne, respectively.

Colin Firth pretty much classes up the joint whenever he appears on screen, so no surprise the actor is in high demand. Hell, this morning we learned he was making a rare blockbuster move, and lining up a role in Matthew Vaughn's "Secret Service." But when Woody Allen comes calling, you clear your schedule, and Firth certainly has.

A few weeks ago, we took out our crystal ball and speculated on what movies might be appearing at the Cannes Film Festival when it kicks off in about six weeks or so. We made some educated guesses, ruled some other movies out and tossed some ideas around as we wait for the official announcement from organizers later this month. Well, it appears a bit of a clearer picture is emerging -- sort of -- as a handful of titles have been ruled out.

Among the many things that Woody Allen will leave behind with his cinematic legacy, one of them will be, if not creating, then certainly popularizing the neurotic, Jewish, sophisticated, New Yorker that has inspired more than one generation of comic actors. Across a series of films literally spanning decades, Allen's characters grappled with existential woes, romantic conundrums and comic situations that often left the writer/director/actor sputtering on screen, flabbergasted at various turns of events. And now, it has been celebrated in one of the most curious supercuts ever assembled.

As day follows night, 2013 will bring another Woody Allen-directed film with an all-star cast. And barely a week into the new year, word is firming up on the director's latest. We knew already that the film, the first by the filmmaker to be mostly set in San Francisco, stars Cate Blanchett alongside Alec Baldwin, Bobby Cannavale, Louis C.K., Andrew Dice Clay, Sally Hawkins and Peter Sarsgaard, and involves a woman facing financial ruin, who comes across a man who may be able to stay solvent.

While Woody Allen tends to not think much of his own output, he's more than happy to recognize talent among his colleagues, and it may surprise some to know that Martin Scorsese's "GoodFellas" is one that he considers to be a "great American movie."

You can basically draw every neurotic, Jewish comic character on the big screen and small back to Woody Allen in some form or another. For decades, the comic legend has been bringing his brand of comedy to the big screen every year (except the times he dips into drama), and while these days he's mostly comfortable behind the camera, he does taking an acting role if and when the mood suits him. Of course, he's starring in his own "To Rome With Love" this summer, but when it comes to other director's works, he's a bit more choosy. This fall, he's star in John Turturro's "Fading Gigolo," but can he be convinced to take a role in other movie not of his own making?
