As in making the same movie over and over again? I'm not a great fan of Bergman but I recognize an intelligence at work that I don't appreciate as much as others. As much as I don't like Truffaut, putting him on a par with Woody Allen is insulting in the extreme. Woody Allen is a fluffy joke, a charlatan, a poser and a fraud. And that has nothing to do with his personal life as I really like much of Roman Polanski's work so let's not go there. Woody Allen, to me, is like imitation banana flavoring: tinny, sickly sweet, and nothing like the real thing.
