I have never seen a Woody Allen movie...I might have to check this out...as well as Manhattan.




I’m not a huge fan of his work, but Crimes and Misdemeanors is the one I’ve always found most worthy of the praise he gets imo.

It’s a complex morality tale, and Landau is outstanding. For those that find consistent personal truths hidden in his storytelling, I’ve always found the Judah storyline to be particularly haunting in its implications as to the possible depths of his depravity.


Midnight in Paris is definitely fun though, and yes it benefits from Wilson playing the Allen role, so can be easier to watch for many.

Allen is a creep, but Midnight in Paris is simply a phenomenal movie.

His most famous films, the characters are insufferable.



Who is this Little Lord Fauntleroy as an adult?

But Match Point is a really good movie. It's not NY narcissism.

Mia Farrow and Woody Allen did not make a child with BLUE EYES

re: Allen v Farrow - doc on HBO
Well, Woody is one weird dude, even if the molestation allegations are untrue. Who the hell has an affair and marries the adopted daughter of your long time lover?

However, Mia is no saint. She’s as fricked up as he is. All those adopted kids with disabilities, and so few of them had anything like a normal childhood. Two committed suicide and another died in strange circumstances.

Here’s an article from the Guardian that sheds a little different light on the subject.

Interview
Moses Farrow: ‘I’d be very happy to take my father’s surname’


Moses Farrow, another of the adopted kids, disputes the molestation charges made by his sister, Dylan.

quote:

Moses had always avoided the limelight, but in 2018 he felt he could do so no more. He published an excoriating blog arguing for his father’s innocence and describing Dylan’s allegation as “ridiculous”: “There was no electric train set in that attic. There was, in fact, no way for kids to play up there, even if we had wanted to,” he wrote. “As a trained professional, I know that child molestation is a compulsive sickness … yet some would have you believe that, at the age of 56, [Allen] suddenly decided to become a child molester.” He wrote that two of his siblings, Tam and Thaddeus, had killed themselves (the family said Tam died of heart failure), and that Lark had died in poverty of an Aids-related illness.

There was abuse in his family, he wrote, but it did not come from his father. His mother, he wrote, was physically abusive to the children, and she “brainwashed” them, punishing them until they said what she told them to, even if they knew it was a lie. “I had a disability and emotional sensitivities, and that lent itself to being a target,” he tells me.

Dylan replied to Moses’ blog saying, “My brother is a troubled person,” and Ronan dismissed it as part of the “repeated campaign to discredit my sister, often by attacking my mother”. Soon-Yi then gave an interview backing up her brother’s claims about Mia being abusive. In the early 90s, the media wrote gushing articles about Mia’s large and happy blended family, but for the past three decades battle lines have been angrily scorched across it, the children now fighting as viciously as their parents once did.


The article also explains how Mia Farrow as a young woman working as a nanny began having an affair with the married man she worked for, Piven. Piven left his wife to be with Mia, and then the now ex-wife killed herself.

I don’t have an opinion on who is the sicker of the two, but I know not to believe every word of a made for tv hit piece.

I've been saying this for years. Three adopted children dead. I know that one is AIDS related, but that's just not normal.

And even with the allegations, both parties are allowed to adopt more children.

Damn Allen. Fine. Just quit giving them kids.

He has several phenomenal movies. I wouldn't include that one personally, but i definitely think it's good.

I don't have an alter. And I watched Ronan do an interview and he's way too flamboyant for me.

"Al Brooks

He thinks he's the best there is too."

No doubt

Dated comedy

I'm surprised he never tried to use a hologram of Dom Deluise.

Uh did you complete Middle School Science? Go back and do your punnett squares, blue eyes are recessed genes. Two dark eyed people can both carry recessed genes that can skip generations. Similar to how two black people can have a redhaired kid.

If you want to watch some of the “older funny ones”, try Sleeper and Bananas.
