Sleeper (1973)
First screened in July 2014
Director: Woody Allen. Cast: Woody Allen, Diane Keaton, John Beck, Mary Gregory, Don Keefer, Marya Small, John McLiam, Bartlett Robinson, Chris Forbes, Peter Hobbs, Susan Miller, Lou Picetti, Brian Avery, Spencer Milligan. Screenplay: Woody Allen and Marshall Brickman.

Twitter Capsule: Woody giggles at 2001, Week End, etc., while pushing his limits in jokes and memorable visuals. High comic batting average.

VOR:   Key film in Allen's shift from ragamuffin japes to more ambitious conceits while still scoring laughs. Patience for Woody will determine each viewer's reaction.
