He has created a singular world with each movie he has released since his first in 1969. Foster Hirsch analyzes and celebrates that world in this study of the themes, visual style, and acting in each of Allen's films. With the addition of a new introduction and a chapter covering the eleven movies Allen has made in the last decade from Alice to Small Time Crooks - this up-to-date analysis of the director's entire body of work is a vital book for Allen fans and foes alike."--BOOK JACKET." ;
