Why Would I Watch One Film So Many Times?


They got me thinking about Bananas, Woody Allen's classic comedy film from 1971. I realized that I've seen that picture a bunch of times: perhaps a dozen; perhaps more than any other.

On the big screen: the first time I saw it was at CFB Borden's Astral Theatre in 1974 when it was double-featured with another classic Allen, Sleeper.

On the small: I remember videotaping Bananas off of CHCH in 1982; multiple viewing ensued, often with friends.

Why would I watch one film so many times?
