  1. This is Norman, friend of Rodney Andrews. I have a question and something to share. Why did you contrast the two films and my brother-in-law was a character in Killer of Sheep. He is a Burnett. Charles Burnett cast his family regurly during that time.

    • I contrast the films because I love them both. I believe Woody Allen borrowed that shot from Burnett, and I wanted to give Burnett his just due. I also like the juxtaposition in mood between affluent white couple in New York and poor black couple in Watts.
