This might just be the hangover talking, but Stardust Memories is great. It is wildly self indulgent and all over the place, but holy fucking shit is it jam-packed with interesting ideas and beautiful frames. Woody Allen is Woody Allen-ing out pretty hard, and he’s playing himself so obviously that he barely even tries to make his character any different from him. Even more than usual. He could have been called Goody Fallen, but that would have probably been viewed as a fuck-you to the audience. It is on Netflix and you can watch it right now and it’s not perfect, but it’s fun and weird and there’s a ton of beautiful 1980 women and hideous (but interesting looking) 1980 men to look at.
Also there’s a shot where you can see that Woody’s got a gross, dirty ear. I love that little troll-man. He’s a smartypants pervert jewy neurotic with a heart of greasy gold.
