works about Woody Allen

"If my films don't show a profit, I know I'm doing something right."

"Comedy just pokes at problems, rarely confronts them squarely. Drama is like a plate of
meat and potatoes, comedy is rather the dessert, a bit like meringue."

"I don't want to achieve immortality through my work. I want to achieve it through not dying."

— Woody Allen
