One of the most prolific filmmakers ever, Woody Allen's cinema is as unique as his sense of humour. His films reflect his obsessions, chief among them being 'death', who's had an appearance or two in his films. Heavily inspired by the existential works of Ingmar Bergman & the European New Waves, Allen, who was a stand-up comic, veered to cinema in the 60's when he started writing for films. Annie Hall, his most well-known work, came in 1977 and set the standard for romantic comedies & won him two Oscars (Best Director & Original Screenplay). Since then he's gone on to create an entire genre, that film buffs have come to recognize as Woody Allen'esque.
