Below you'll find a one hour episode of “Scene By Scene,” a brief BBC series from critic/filmmaker Mark Cousins (the man behind the epic 15-part "The Story Of Film" and "What Is This Film Called Love?"). The show had him talking to directors about their body of work and dissecting their process, with the ample running time allowing him to really dig deep.
In this one hour discussion circa June 2000 (around the release of "Small Time Crooks") Woody talks about his obsession with death, if personal issues affected his movies, and how his film rarely live up to his own expectations. It’s a very honest and insightful look into what makes Woody Allen function, featuring plenty of clips as well. Check it out below; might be a good primer for "Blue Jasmine" arriving on July 26th.
