Im not really debating the films, thats entirely subjective and im more than happy to say "they werent for me but that doesnt mean they are not good" it does just seem odd to me that he has this extreme celebrity in spite of most people not really knowing (or liking) a great deal of his work.I’ve seen some horrific top 100 lists, they mean nothing.
Two great filmmakers, I’ll leave it at that.
For reference Allen has 0 in the top 100 on IMDB, you can debate the quality of that list but its a good sample size.
Yet somehow if you asked someone on the street to name 5 movie directors Allen is likely one of those 5.
That doesnt seem odd to you?
