    Yes, I know, he puts out one every year, so it'd hard to achieve the best quality for each one, but there are some he's done that are all-time favorites:

    1. Annie Hall
    2. Interiors
    3. Take The Money and Run
    4. Another Woman
    5. Sleeper
    6. Crimes and Misdemeanors
    7. Manhattan

    Interiors is this quite, elegaic movie with like almost no background music- really something else, one to check out if you haven't seen it already. But they cover everything- slapstick humor, drama, etc.

    My personal fav is Match Point. It's probably one of the best modern thrillers of the decade.

    Some of my favorites and he isn't even in one of them, but he directed it. These aren't in any real order.

    Sleeper
    Love and Death
    Purple Rose of Cairo
    Annie Hall
    Take the Money and Run
    Midnight in Paris
    Play It Again Sam

    I' probably the oddball but I just never found him funny. I just found his character annoying and too schticky. I haven't seen the majority of his collection though so maybe I should give him a more fair shot.

    I did really enjoy Midnight in Paris though

    I don't know what my favorite would be, but I recently saw "Midnight in Paris" and found it quite enjoyable.

    Love and Death has so many great lines
    Sonja - Yes! I do believe this is the best of all possible worlds
    Boris - It's definitely the most expensive

    Annie Hall
    Manhattan
    Bananas
    Broadway Danny Rose is very underrated
    Hannah and her sisters

    I stopped watching after Shadows and Fog.
