Film Critic F.X. Feeney on Woody Allen

“His sensitivity to music is key to his success as a filmmaker, because very early on – right from the very first films – he’s got a sense of rhythm; a sense of timing. Rhythm and timing are key to success in comedy, but because he has this other melodic sensitivity, I think it really makes it possible for him to do not only excellent comedy, but it makes it possible for him to be emotional as well.”
