Woody Allen made more fucked-up movies about more fucked-up people than anyone. An adept thinker in the fields of psychology and humor, Allen teaches us about our deepest and deadliest neurosis: the desire to perpetuate a meaningless culture.
How does Allen do it?
He started out a stand up comic, went on to become an intellectual darling film star writer, producer, director, and lead actor. And for a kicker, he married his own underage adopted daughter!
Needless to say he is worshipped in France and at Pax Acidus film screenings.
Best Film: Annie Hall
