    Thursday Jul 23 | NorthJersey.com

    Few working directors are compared to themselves as much as Woody Allen, but the prolific and brilliant Allen brings it upon himself because, let's face it, for all his filmmaking genius, he has a tendency to repeat themes and motifs.

    Forty-five features into his half-century of moviemaking, the rote obsessions distinguishing Woody Allen's furtive protagonists -- luck, fate, chance, getting away with murder -- have extended more and more to Allen's own approach to screenwriting.
