    What's Your Favorite Woody Allen Movie?
    http://www.americanthinker.com/2014/...len_movie.html

    It seems Woody Allen has received one too many Oscar nominations. This year's nod, best screenplay for Blue Jasmine, was the straw that broke the camel's back for Dylan Farrow, whom Allen adopted along with Mia Farrow in the 1980s.

    On February 1, 2014, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof published an open letter from Dylan to the world, asking how it could continue to patronize and honor movies made by a pedophile who had ruined her life.

    She has a point. Just try watching Allen's 1989 film Crimes and Misdemeanors after reading Dylan's harrowing letter without throwing up.

    In the final ten minutes of that film, there are not one but two appalling scenes. In the first, Allen tells his on-screen sister he's fleeing his sexless marriage and jokes "the last time I was inside a woman was the Statue of Liberty." The camera then instantly cuts to a close-up of two tiny young girls in party dresses. After that, one of the last images on screen is Allen walking down the street eating pizza with his very young on-screen daughter, his arm around her shoulders.

    Allen is famous for not showing up at the Oscars to claim his awards. Maybe that's because he knew sooner or later doing so would be bound to push Dylan too far...

    I've never thought Woody Allen was funny. I have always thought Mia Farrow was nuts.

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    Sleeper and Bananas were modestly funny, Love and Death was in a kind of dark, Dostoyevskii parody kind of way. But generally I agree with you on this one.

    It wouldn't have fit, since there were three of his movies I kind of liked, at least a little.

    We're not post-whoring, are we?
