Soundtracks of my LIFE: “HANNAH AND HER SISTERS” (1986)

No, not Hannah from GIRLS . . . “Hannah and Her Sisters” – one of Woody Allen’s best and most classic films he ever made chronicling the eccentric lives of well, Hannah, and her sisters.

Dianne Wiest won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, and Michael Caine was dubbed Best Supporting Actor of the year, as well as a deserved win for the film’s hilarious screenplay. It appropriately captures the life and longings of living in a metropolitan city in the age of the moderns.

It’s bold yet subtle, and the film has a lot to owe to it’s exquisite curation of oldies and classics to make the film’s iconic soundtrack.

Don’t you find that sometimes there are soundtracks that much up perfectly to your state-of-mind or point-in-life in the most remarkable way, you’d swear they were handcrafted for you. In a way, they were, and with each passing mood and memory, you are bound to find another soundtrack that uplifts that particular spirit.

That’s why I’m always scouring for new old ones, and old new ones to help make my world a more beautiful and inspiring place.

FLASHBACK FRIDAY: Meeting Olive from “BULLETS OVER BROADWAY”

Bullets Over Broadway

Bullets Over Broadway was a great film from 1994, which garnered a second Academy Award for Dianne Wiest, as well as six other nominations including Best Director for Woody Allen. The cast also includes veteran actors such as Tracey Ullman, Jim Broadbent, Chazz Palminteri, and Mary-Louise Parker.

Starring John Cussack as a neurotic playwright in the 1920s, the film follows the follies of making a work of art, and the many pains of compromises of getting a respectable work of art produced. If the title isn’t indication enough, things quickly fall out of whack as the play gets more and more involved with a mobster and his gang.

The film is undoubtedly one of Allen’s best, and if you enjoyed the 1920s period recreation done in Midnight in Paris, you will be sure to love the scenery here – New York, flappers, the 1920s, Art Deco Β (everything in swing with the design trends of today, in fact) – and if nothing else, as you will see from this clip, Jennifer Tilly really goes out of her way to steal the show as Olive, the naive and talkative dancer turned Broadway actress.

Bullets Over Broadway (1994)

Some of her lines are the very best. And it is no surprise she got nominated for an Oscar, too, for the crazy kooky character she developed here. Cussack is also great as the Allen-type character, making all the wools, tweeds, vests, ties, messy hair, and academic looks of a playwright come right to life.

If you are a style savant, comedy aficionado, oscar follower, or simply the bored lonely type, thenΒ Bullets Over BroadwayΒ is the film for you!

Check it out! Hope you enjoy!

Most sincerely,
