A good movie

Honestly, it has been a while since I have seen this flick but it was definitely a blast to see Woody Allen’s directing debut. Sometimes, they do register ‘What’s Up, Tiger Lily?’ as his official debut but this previous feature was not really a directing effort, it was more his ‘re-dub’ of an already existing movie. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, I really wonder if the viewer... read more

Description: "Woody Allen is hilarious" (NY Daily News) in his brilliant first outing as director, writer and star in this satire about the most inept bank robber ever laughed at by the FBI. Woody Allen casts himself as a desperate criminal one step ahead ... Full Descriptionof the law in this riotous comedy full of slapstick silliness. Allen's directorial debut is a terribly funny mockumentary about a crook who tries and tries to pull off heists and robberies but never to any avail because of his incredible incompetence and stupidity, which leads to his downfall every time, including using a fake gun made of soap--and getting ...

"Virgil Starkwell is intent on becoming a notorious bank robber. Unfortunately for Virgil and his not-so-budding career, he is completely incompetent. This is an eccentric comedy shot in the style of a fake documentary that chronicles the misadventures of Virgil Starkwell, an untalented thief and his various attempts to steal money and escape from prison. Woody Allen's 2nd movie is a set of sketches, gags, slapstick and physical comedy which is really funny to watch. It's an early indicator of w"

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Film Diary: Jan & Feb (28 movies items)

"January 1 "He is always very depressed. I think that if he'd been a successful criminal, he would have felt better. You know, he never made the 'ten most wanted' list. It's very unfair voting; it's who you know." Wanted to start the year off with something funny, so I went with this one and it turned out to be hilarious. It's a really well-done spoof of crime documentaries and it's consistently funny from start to finish. It does have some minor imperfections like pacing issues and stuff lik"
