Rebels are We!: Film #19 – Bananas (1971)

Woody Allen’s second proper film and the one that would define his early work. Take the Money and Run is actually a bit more high concept than his later works, but this one, with it’s focus on the neuroses of the “Allen character”, sex jokes and wacky interstitial humor defines Allen’s comedy in the time before he changed everything with Annie Hall. And even if it is hopelessly of its time, it’s still funny after all these years. (And you gotta love Howard Cosell’s work!)
