Directors of Cinema: Episode 3 – Woody Allen


Welcome to another episode of Directors of Cinema, the podcast that highlights the careers of cinema’s most prominent directors. Each week, host Matthew Goudreau and a guest discuss selected works of a director chosen by the guest.

This episode, Matt welcomes special guest Kevin Montes to discuss Woody Allen. For almost a half century, Woody Allen has been one of the most prolific filmmakers in the industry. With over 40 films to his name (with a wide assortment in quality), we certainly couldn’t talk about them all. What do they have to say about the films they chose? Some of the films highlighted during the discussion include:

  • Manhattan
  • Annie Hall
  • Stardust Memories
  • Manhattan Murder Mystery
  • Hannah and Her Sisters
  • The Purple Rose of Cairo
  • Anything Else
  • Small Time Crooks

Matt is a 21 year old film buff and recent graduate from The University of Rhode Island. Growing up in a small town in the smallest state, Matt began developing a taste in film and general geekdom at a young age. After years of watching various DC and Marvel animated television shows as a boy, Matt has become quite the afficinado in the realm of comic books. Towards the end of middle school, Matt began delving into the world of film by watching anything he could get his hands on. Nowadays, his tastes range from classic film noir and the mindbending works of David Cronenberg to the latest trends on the independent scene. Don't worry; he's still one for the latest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or DC animated adventure. Comics aren't the only source of literature Matt enjoys. He can sometimes be spotted reading the works of Stephen King or even the plays of William Shakespeare. As an aspiring film critic and screenwriter, Matt is always looking for inspiration and new ideas.
