Full moon follies

If you were to compile a list of all the directors in Hollywood who are worthy of the title "auteur", chances are that a) it would be a short list and b) Woody Allen's name would be somewhere near the top. The prolific 78-year-old writer/director, who's been churning out films at the rate of roughly one a year for much of his five-decade-long career, is best known for his comedies, although he's not averse to creating a little drama now and again. And after 2013's melancholy Blue Jasmine, it's almost a relief that Allen has returned to considerably lighter fare with Magic in the Moonlight.
