The Front (1976)

The Front was neither directed nor written by Woody Allen. Woody serves as the main actor and the film bridges the gap between Love and Death (1975) and Annie Hall (1977). The Front functions as the link that sets off a more serious and dramatic Allen versus the slap-sticky pure comedic. This film suffers from its lack of comedy and simplistically politicized drama. It strives to be a Crucible of sorts. Luckily, Zero Mostel gives a tremendous performance and helps carry the film.

3.0 out of 5 stars.

Nothing to do with this film, Allen and Billy Graham:
