In Darkness

Phil Bacharach

Annie Hall

Love is too weak a word.


Comedy

Phil Bacharach

The fact that it served as a turning point for Allen from full-bore comedies to more ambitious (if just as funny) stuff can make it easy to take for granted.

Remembering Anthony Shadid


Commentary

Phil Bacharach
What I remember most about Anthony Shadid from high school was his laugh. It was disarmingly infectious. His eyes would crinkle and his head would tilt back, and he reminded me of a young Ringo Starr, all smiles and shy charm.
