Beginning with Play it Again, Sam, the films of Woody Allen offer a perceptive vision of contemporary life and the human condition. The increasing complexity of his works as a director and writer over two decades has paralleled an equally complex process of intellectual and moral maturity. Allen's films reveal a decentered world of displaced and dislocated characters who question their ability to find meaning in their lives. Allen's achievement as an artist has been to develop a style of technical and artistic complexity to sustain his vision.
