Now that I've watched the 4 episode series, let's see if I can get this thread locked.We've watched the first 2 episodes of Allen vs Farrow. What a fucking creep.
The 3rd episode involves Allen trying to disparage Farrow, and take the kids from her. The 4th episode is full of big movie stars showing support for Allen, and generally proclaiming his divine godliness as a writer and director.
So I wanted to share my perspective on Allen, and see what others thought. Firstly, I have to say that I'm clearly in the demographic for a Woody Allen fan: I'm a Jewish, clarinet playing intellectual from metro NYC. I grew up in a world where everyone loved him.
I was a fan of his early work. But I eventually tired of his "shtick" - the 40-something nebbishy New Yorker who's involved with obsessed, beautiful young women/ girls. I thought the premise was funny the 1st time, but then I got confused about what was intended to be funny, and what was just him.
Some of the biggest people in the industry think he's a genius. What does everyone here think?
