Dear Woody and all of my male readers... a penny for your thoughts?
I can sum up my affection and appreciation for neurotic Jewish men in two words: Annie Hall.
I love all things Woody Allen: his books, his movies, his silly articles in the New Yorker. I love that he stutters. I love that he rolls his credits before the movie begins and that they are always in the same typeface. I love that Scarlett Johansson is his muse. (Isn't she just absolute perfection?)
The last two movies of his that I've seen, Vicki Cristina Barcelona and Match Point, are quite reminiscent of one another. Both films encompass love triangles with two vastly different women and one man, who, for lack of a better term, is having a hard time keeping it in his pants. It really got me thinking.
I'm realizing more and more that there are two types of women in this world: the kind that men want to be with and the kind that men want.
I need to know... Is it possible to be both at the same time?
