Radio Days (1987)

Any Woody film that falls under the  “sweet” genre probably means it will be a nostalgic piece set in the 40s. There are a number of his films entirely set in the long-ago past, sometimes it works splendidly (Purple Rose of Cairo) or it falls flat (Curse of the Jade Scorpion). Radio Days floats somewhere in the middle but definitely bests mediocre markers. If  you tend to associate Allen with staple titles: Match Point, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Annie Hall, or even Manhattan then I suggest checking out Radio Days for a more dynamic observation of Woody Allen’s abilities.
