What about the millennials on this board?
Dat was sort of at the back of my head but i forgot about it! Yeah, Id say this place is...to a moderate but undeniable degree...an exception. But honestly thats it. School, the rest of the internet, even my brother, basically everything else....!!!!

I just don’t think that generalization stands water because it applies to people regardless of generation.

Im wracking my brains trying to find a memory of a millennial ever admitting they were wrong about anything, or showing any evidence of shame (except for petty and meaningless virtue-signaling, of course). Im drawing a blank.......But. Maybe thats because they Dont Need To....!!!
I’m a millennial, and I’m happy to admit that I was wrong one time.

Woody Allen, on the other hand, is not a millennial

Now you mention it, what even is he? Seems a little too ancient to be the recipient of an "OK Boomer".

Allen is part of, ironically, the generation referred to as the Silent Generation (1928 to 1945), which is between The Greatest Generation and the Baby Boomers. Not sure who thinks of these names

Looks like Tom Brokaw coined the Greatest Generation, though he wasn't a part of it

For those interested, more pictures and a lot of information (in English) on the Annie Hall deleted scenes can be found here. Hopefully these surface one day, if they still exist (I seem to recall Woody's friend and biographer Eric Lax implying at least once that they do, but I can't recall the specific source at the moment).

There have been rumors for years of a VHS copy of the Annie Hall workprint that has screened for "insiders". I've always wondered how photos of Michael Keaton from
Purple Rose of Cairo ever snuck out.

I've also heard rumors about an Annie Hall workprint VHS, but I don't know anybody who has actually seen it. If true, I imagine whoever might have it has been asked to keep it close to the vest, and asks the same of those they share it with.

A few pictures of Michael Keaton as Tom Baxter/Gil Shepherd in The Purple Rose of Cairo appeared in Bob Weide's excellent Woody Allen: A Documentary. On a related note, I can't remember if that documentary also included pictures from the first version of September, but I believe it did.

According to Vittorio Storaro, plans are underway for Woody Allen's next film to begin filming in early August. The screenplay is set in Paris and Allen has described it as being along the lines of Match Point.

Apparently a spanish blu of Anything Else emerged a few months ago, but it's similarly cropped to 1.78 like the German release..
