Anything Else

2003 Woody Allen movie, Anything Else.

Pretty impressive work of dialogue. Woody Allen’s character Dobel was pretty eccentric and spouting gems, or fake gems. The other two main characters were just filling in gaps with highly irritating incessant blabber. Yes blabber! Not banter, not dialogue, but dumb blabber. Sheesh even Dobel blabbers on, but in less nonsensical stuff. Interesting enough to watch if you could filter out all the blabber. The guy is so impressively dumb, and the girl is such a bitch.

I think I don’t get Woody Allen, no matter how hard I try.


Amanda: I’ve had a crush on you since we met. Couldn’t you tell, the way I was ignoring you?  (bitch)

Jerry Falk: Well, there was something compelling about your apathy.  (idiot. no i didn’t think she was ignoring you at all. and your poor gf-at-that-time, poor girl. no wait, she’s lucky you’re gone from her life.)

Sorry, you gotta see it to understand my comments. And I don’t normally care to scold people.

David Dobel: You chose psychoanalysis over real life? Are you learning disabled?

I gotta say I liked this one.

David Dobel: Since the beginning of time people have been, you know, frightened and, and unhappy, and they’re scared of death, and they’re scared of getting old, and there’s always been priests around, and shamans, and now shrinks, to tell ’em, “Look, I know you’re frightened, but I can help you. Of course, it is going to cost you a few bucks…” But they *can’t* help you, Falk, because life is what it is.

I like this too. Life is what it is.
