Larry Karaszewski on

Stardust Memories

Released 1980
Distributor United Artists

At the height of his critical enshrinement after hitting the jackpot with Annie Hall and ManhattanWoody Allen attempted his own version of Fellini’s 8 1/2, about a filmmaker who re-examines his life and loves at a fan-filled retrospective of his works. It was roundly rejected by critics and audiences as a misjudged, cynical muddle of pretension and narcissism. Overlooked was the fact that this intensely personal (as opposed to autobiographical) project was and remains one of Allen’s most profound and lasting achievements, and one of his own favorites among his films.
