‘Love and Death’

Why: Woody Allen’s 1975 comedy is a promiscuous spoof of Russian literature set during the Napoleonic era and featuring tossed-off gags about T. S. Eliot and Ingmar Bergman. It’s also one of the funniest movies ever made, thanks in large part to an amazingly deft comic performance from Diane Keaton, who stars as a poetic amalgamation of every female character ever to appear in Tolstoy, Chekhov, Dostoevsky, et al., and who does things with her voice and face that will make you scream. (Grand Illusion, 1403 NE 50th St, grandillusioncinema.org, 7 and 9 pm, $8)
