I really think Blue Jasmine is some of Allen's finest work ever, and I've seen all his films and have read quite a bit of his written work as well.

Cate Blachett is an absolute revelation in her role, but the supporting cast is amazing too. I found the use of parallel editing, i.e., cutting back and forth between past and present to be an excellent way to capture Blachett's character's blurred sense of reality. The script, editing, & cast were all great.

Fashion: Don’t you recognize me? Death: You should know that I don’t see very well and I can’t wear glasses. Fashion: I’m Fashion, your sister. Death: My sister? Fashion: Yes. You and I together keep undoing and changing things down here on earth although you go about it in one way and I another. Giacomo Leopardi, “Dialogue Between Fashion and Death.”abridged

My favorite movies by Woody Allen are (in this order): Purple Rose of Cairo, Annie Hall, Deconstructing Harry, Crimes and Misdemeanors and Midnight in Paris.

I still have a lot of movies to watch, because I've seen like 15 movies by him but he has so many.
