This Sunday, PBS will premiere a new “American Masters” documentary about Woody Allen’s life and work. In the next episode of Vox Tablet, host Sara Ivry speaks with the maker of that documentary, Robert Weide. Best known as an executive producer and the principal director of Curb Your Enthusiasm, for which he’s received many Emmy nominations (in 2003 he won for his direction in the episode “Krazee-Eyez Killa”), Weide relates how he watched countless hours of stand-up Woody and talk-show-guest Woody as well as, of course, all 45 or so of Woody’s films. Of those, he notes that one now strikes him as far more impressive then he remembered it to have been. Any guesses?

Here’s a hint:

You can find out more about Weide and about Woody Allen on tomorrow’s podcast, so stay tuned. Oh, and answer after the jump.

That’s John Cusack and Dianne Wiest in 1994’s Bullets Over Broadway.
