Capsule Legacy

Broadway Danny Rose (1984)

Broadway Danny Rose is Woody Allen at his peak filmmaking powers. The framing story of wiseacres narrating the story gives the movie a tall tale-like feeling. Mia Farrow is amazing and completely transformed, and Gordon Willis’s black and white photography is intoxicating. World-class stuff. The straightforward romantic comedy elements are elevated by melancholic thematic guts, plus the visual grandeur. This is a borderline masterpiece.

Is It Good?

Exceptionally Good (7/8)
