Even 35+ years later, the opening sequence to Woody Allen‘s Manhattan still gives me goose bumps. Shot in black and white, it’s really a small story set in a big city. The monologue parodies this genre of film, and as the cliché goes, New York is just another character in the story and with this kind of set-up, it’s beautifully clear. For this New Yorker, the city shown here is mostly gone –but there’s a new, exciting one in its place. Watch.
