Other than sex and art, the one thing that the characters in Woody Allen's movies talk about most is the meaning of life, in one form or another. So, throughout Allen's body of films and writing, is there a consistent position on the meaning and value of life that's expressed by his characters? Despite all the jokes and gags in his work, the focus on romantic love, the desire and struggle of his characters for self-expression through art, I think the answer is yes, there is a position on the issue, and it's that life is inherently and utterly meaningless.
