Hannah and Her Sisters (Woody Allen, 1986)

I'm currently in the midst of a Woody Allen marathon. This one appears in a lot of 'favorite lists', and it didn't disappoint.

A lot of unfortunate 80s womenswear in this film, but most of the menswear wouldn't look out of place today.

End movie spoilers ahead.

Michael Caine: Always a winner. 
Shirt, tie, polo, elbow patches.
The fur is a little too pimpin' for me, but her toggle coat could be worn today.
The anxiety of the man in the booth.

Would love to know the story behind this shirt.
"I want so badly to kiss her." 

Grief and herringbone.

Over accessorized.
Mia Farrow doing the menswear thing. Michael Caine looking guilty
 in a comfortable sweater.
This time with less accessories.
Anxious in a V-neck.
Neurotic in a crew neck.
Those poor sleeves.
Varsity jacket.
Dark plaid, bold tie. 
Comfy cable knit sweater.
A happy ending. 

As part of its American Masters series, PBS is airing a documentary on Woody Allen, directed by Paul B. Weide. It airs November 20th and 21st.

Hell On Wheels

"N***a act like a freed slave on everything else, he finally get to PLAY one..and he fucks THAT shit up."

A quote found on a message board that was too funny to not share. Props to Lonnie for the SAG card thing, and finding a steady source of income, but I don't know if I can trust the quality of any television show or film that has him in a prominent role. One of the reasons why I don't see myself ever getting on board with this show.

Another reason of course being AMC's spotty track record of late.
