It ain't easy ranking the films of one of the most prolific directors ever. The amount of work Allen has released throughout his career is mind-boggling, so many different eras and stylistic periods. I recently had to re-watch Crimes and Misdemeanors for a film class. that would probably be my favorite right now, the acting is awesome. I also really like September, probably his heaviest, most sombre film.

No love for Manhattan? The cinematography is especially breathtaking, although that's a credit to the DP as well.

I've only seen one Woody movie, Anything Else, and I loved it. It was entertaining through the entire movie and made me laugh. I think what I appreciated the most was the above average dialogue.
