O Mestre da Neurose


A propósito da estreia de Café Society, o novo filme de Woody Allen, embarcamos numa neurótica viagem pelas 20 citações mais icónicas do realizador nova-iorquino.

Woody Allen. Podíamos ficar por aqui e seria bastante, porque todas as insuficientes palavras que temos para lhe dedicar assentariam que nem uma luva numa das suas mais frenéticas sequências verbosas, que atalham por um sarcasmo negativista mesmo que escondam na intimidade da sua timidez uma paixão nefasta por tudo o que é de vida.

Nascido em 1935, começou a registar há precisamente 50 anos algumas das mais geniais comédias dramáticas da contemporaneidade entre os 47 filmes que realizou e que o tornam, simultaneamente, um dos realizadores mais frutíferos em atividade na selvática indústria de Hollywood. Vingou no século XX e atravessou o milénio com a delicadeza e classe de quem cospe histórias de vida a cada golfada de ar.

Mestre da comédia e da arte do existencialismo, Allen dá-se em toda a sua obra. Focado na decadência da humanidade e na efemeridade da alegria, o cineasta nova-iorquino comporta consigo um estilo literário e cinematográfico dissemelhante e único, que o pousa no debate dos melhores realizadores do mundo.



Para perpetuamente lembrar e nunca esquecer, destacamos 20 das mais icónicas citações dos seus filmes.


"Love is too weak a word for what I feel - I luuurve you, you know, I loave you, I luff you, two F's, yes I have to invent, of course I - I do, don't you think I do?"

 Annie Hall (1977)




"I feel that life is divided into the horrible and the miserable. That's the two categories. The horrible are like, I don't know, terminal cases, you know, and blind people, crippled. I don't know how they get through life. It's amazing to me. And the miserable is everyone else. So you should be thankful that you're miserable, because that's very lucky, to be miserable."

- Annie Hall (1977)



"Maybe the poets are right. Maybe love is the only answer."

- Ana e as Suas Irmãs (1986)


"Has anybody read that Nazis are gonna march in New Jersey? Y’know, I read this in the newspaper. We should go down there, get some guys together, y’know, get some bricks and baseball bats and really explain things to them."

- Manhattan (1979)

"You can’t control life. It doesn’t wind up perfectly. Only-only art you can control. Art and masturbation. Two areas in which I am an absolute expert."

- Recordações (1980)


"I can't listen to that much Wagner, ya know? I start to get the urge to conquer Poland."

O Misterioso Assassínio em Manhattan (1993)

 

"You don’t have to see a shrink. There’s nothing wrong with you that can’t be cured with a little Prozac and a polo mallet."

O Misterioso Assassínio em Manhattan (1993)

 

"Sex is the most fun you can have without laughing"

Nem Guerra, Nem Paz (1975)

 

Man Ray: A man in love with a woman from a different era. I see a photograph!

Luis Buñuel: I see a film!

Gil: I see insurmountable problem!

Salvador Dalí: I see rhinoceros!

 - Meia-Noite em Paris (2011)


"Uh... very interesting. I've never been kissed by a sociopath before."

- Toda a Gente Diz que Te Amo (1996)

"Last time I was inside a woman was when I visited the Statue of Liberty."

Crimes e Escapadelas (1989)



"I believe that love that is true and real creates a respite from death. All cowardice comes from not loving, or not loving well, which is the same thing. And when the man who is brave and true looks death squarely in the face like some rhino hunters I know, or Belmonte, who's truly brave. It is because they love with sufficient passion to push death out of their minds, until the return that it does to all men. And then you must make really good love again. Think about it."

- Meia-Noite em Paris (2011)

 

"Nostalgia is denial - denial of the painful present... the name for this denial is golden age thinking - the erroneous notion that a different time period is better than the one one's living in - it's a flaw in the romantic imagination of those people who find it difficult to cope with the present. "

- Meia-Noite em Paris (2011)

 

"The man who said ‘I’d rather be lucky than good’ saw deeply into life. People are afraid to face how great a part of life is dependent on luck. It’s scary to think so much is out of one’s control. There are moments in a match when the ball hits the top of the net and for a split second it can either go forward or fall back. With a little luck it goes forward and you win. Or maybe it doesn’t and you lose."

Match Point (2005)

 

"Only unfulfilled love can be romantic."

Vicky Cristina Barcelona(2008)

 

"I just met a new man. He’s fictional, but you can’t have everything."

—  A Rosa Púrpura do Cairo (1985)



"I don't need to work out. My anxiety acts as aerobics."

Scoop(2006)


"All people know the same truth. Our lives consist of how we chose to distort it."

As Faces de Harry (1997)

Boris: Nothingness... non-existence... black emptiness...

Sonja: What did you say?

Boris: Oh, I was just planning my future.

-  Nem Guerra, Nem Paz (1975)

 

"Anxiety, nightmares and a nervous breakdown, there's only so many traumas a person can withstand until they take to the streets and start screaming."

Blue Jasmine (2013)
