The sad case of Woody Allen

I count a handful of Woody Allen's films among my all-time favorites...films I never tire of revisiting. Funny thing is, none of the titles I have in mind were made later than 1989. There have been some minor gems among Allen's film-a-year output since then, but mostly he's been churning out product worthy of yawns, or outright avoidance, as in the case of his latest. What's happened to Woody Allen?

Redeyespy offers an answer

He got tired to being funny and wanted to be like Ingmar Bergman.

But that's the thing, like Redeyespy I find the pre-21st century Woody more like Bergman and funnier...Match Point being an exception.
