But Manhattan is also distinguished in the realm of home video as the first motion picture to be released only in a widescreen version.
So when "Manhattan" was released, Woody's first "true" widescreen picture (so much so that Woody insisted this film NEVER be released on video or shown on television without the fl bars on the top and bottom of the screen), I wasn't quite sure what to expect.
"Manhattan," in my opinion, is the finest of Woody's "quartet" of masterpieces (the others are "Annie Hall, Hannah and Her Sisters" and "Crimes and Misdemeanors").

Much of the film appears to have been shot at either sunrise or sunset to soften the light, and there are spectacular views of the towers, bridges and waterways of America's finest metropolis.
Other films may be better, like Annie Hall or Hannah and Her Sisters but, in Manhattan, all the elements of Allen's style are in perfect balance.

But Manhattan is also distinguished in the realm of home video as the first motion picture to be released only in a letterboxed version.
Manhattan effectively promoted Allen to the upper echelons of the director/screenwriter realm; a triumphant synthesis of old-fashioned style and modern sensibility, it defined both a director and a genre, setting new standards for the urban comedy.

The Aboriginal Australians were able to navigate across their harsh and unforgiving land by memorizing and following the Songlines--an intricate series of song cycles that identified the landmarks that one needed to pass to get where one needed to go.
But by relying on maps, signs and Manhattan's perpendicular geography, New Yorkers have given up something important: a sense of place.
Many of the addresses noted are simply the ordinary shops, restaurants and apartment buildings that you would pass if you were walking along a Manhattan street; you need not pay attention to them while looking for the exciting bits--unless you're the sort of person who has to look in every window that you pass.
