    Woody Allen’s fans and critics have something to look forward to, as the filmmaker has agreed to participate in a two-part American Masters PBS documentary about his life and work. It’s a rare opening-up for Allen, who generally declines interviews and lifetime achievement awards. The documentary’s producer, Robert Weide, says he began urging Allen to cooperate in 2008.
