Ha ha, I’m in the same boat at 52, but my attitude is I’ve always been the coolest guy in the world, no need to change now! lol

You just sent me down a 3+ hour wormhole of Orson Welles interviews. Time well spent.

The great thing about cargo shorts is they’re never in style. Thus helping the wearer achieve a zen-like state of permanent dorkitude. Plus plenty of pockets.

What’s muddy about it? He fucked his children’s sister. That was Dylan’s—his own daughter’s—sister. I’m not sure how you can talk about this family dynamic without talking about that, I’m not sure how you can talk about Dylan’s relationship with Woody without talking about that, and I’m not sure how you can talk Read more

Also, Allen’s movies are boring, contrite, overwrought, and pedantic. I have no idea why everybody puts him on his pedestal.

Yup. There was a family photo in the documentary where Soon-Yi was wearing an oversized t-shirt and shorts. She looks like a child. She dressed like a child. She was a child. Read more

He even made a film where he was married to Mia Farrow and was cheating on her with a student (played by teenaged Juliette Lewis). He wrote it and filmed it while he was fucking Farrow’s teenaged daughter behind her back. Read more

The comment about “Woody Allen the steamroller” (as opposed to the public image of Allen as a neurotic) reminds me of how Orson Welles absolutely pegged him for what he always was decades ago. Read more

This. The guy has SHOWN who he is. Ending up with a child you met when she was twelve is the creepiest goddamn thing in the world, and only a creepy creepy creep would be capable of it. That’s even leaving out the fact that he was supposed to be her goddamned father. If someone shows you who they are, believe it.

I don’t understand how anyone could believe Allen after the business with his stepdaughter.

Does the series touch on the fact that Allen tells us repeatedly, in film after film, who he is? How many movies has he made now about a young, barely legal woman getting ensnared by a creepy old man (often played by Allen himself)?

So we started at “you wouldn’t have killed yourself” and we’re ending at “this disagreement means you’re a bad psychologist.” This is the kind of invalidating thing I was talking about when I said I deserve to be treated better than you’ve offered. I’m not triggered, I’m self-advocating. And no, I didn’t go into Read more

I commented expecting pushback, certainly! This whole “I bet you didn’t actually want to kill yourself, you’d have been fine” thing is not an okay way to treat another person.

Hey, this fucking sucks. The way you have treated my experiences throughout this has fucking sucked. I deserve better than you’ve offered me. I’m okay, I’ve had worse interactions online, but you should know that I deserve better, as a person, than what you’ve give me. Read more

Just explaining why I used the euphemism I did. Anyway, a teen has all the rights having been sent to a residential treatment boarding school that they do otherwise. What right does a child have not to be sent to summer camp? Or sent to stay with a grandparent while their parent takes a weekend off or even to go on a Read more

You ARE invalidating my experience and there is absolutely no other way to read your first comment about how I probably wouldn’t have REALLY killed myself or died by coronary by 35. You’re outright stating it isn’t true, and implying that my very serious mental health problems were histrionics. I deserve better than Read more
