Woody Allen says cancel culture is ‘dumb’

Falsely accused Oscar winner Woody Allen has mocked our ‘dumb’ cancel culture and said nothing has changed in his life.

The 87-year-old genius is in Venice this week with his latest (and 50th) feature film Stroke of luck, a French-speaking thriller. For some reason, he agreed to sit down with the far-left blacklists. Variety. Naturally, the outlet was more interested in examining the allegations he was cleared of more than 30 years ago than in his historic and consequential career as a writer and director.

“When I lift the[e] subject” of the debunked assault allegation from 30 years ago, the Variety The interviewer wrote, “Allen’s tone and attitude change noticeably. »

How weird!

“He’s jovial and talkative when he talks about his film and his love for classic French cinema,” she continues, but his “mood suddenly turned dark…when I asked him to comment on Farrow, as well that the impact his claims have had on his reputation[.]»

You were accused of molesting your own daughter… Hey, why did your mood change?

“At the end of our interview,” explains this spiritual spirit, “Allen became pensive, staring into space.”

When asked if he was still an advocate for the #MeToo movement, Allen replied:

I think any movement that brings real benefits, that brings something positive, let’s say for women, is a good thing. When it gets silly, it’s silly. I have read cases where it is very beneficial, where the situation has been very beneficial for women, and that is good. When I read some cases in a newspaper article where it’s silly, then it’s silly.

He explained that in silly, he meant, “When it’s too extreme to try to make an issue of it when in fact most people wouldn’t consider it an offensive situation.” »

Allen then elaborated that throughout his 50 films, no one ever complained about his behavior:

I have made 50 films. I’ve always had great roles for women, I’ve always had women on the crew, I’ve always paid them exactly the same amount we paid men, I’ve worked with hundreds of actresses and I have never had a single complaint from them at any time. indicate. Not one ever said, “Working with him, he was mean or harassing.” It just wasn’t a problem. My editors are women. I have no problem with that. It never really bothered me. I hire who I think is right for the role. Like I said, I’ve worked with hundreds of actresses, unknown actresses, stars, mid-level actresses. No one has ever complained and there is nothing to complain about.

Allen also accurately defended himself against the false and shameful assault allegation:

“My reaction has always been the same,” he said. “The situation was investigated by… two major investigative bodies. And both, after long and detailed investigations, concluded that these accusations were unfounded.[.]»

Allen never even faced a grand jury. After months of detailed investigation by two separate states, these allegations were found to be unfounded, but there was plenty of mitigating evidence.

When asked if it had been canceled, Allen replied, “I think if you’re going to be canceled, it’s the culture that has to cancel it. »

He added that his life had not changed. He still makes his movies. What has changed is the distribution sector and the way films are screened. He is not a fan of streaming or raising money. As he approaches his 90s (!), he says he has a lot of energy to make films but not enough to go through the tedious financing process. Stroke of luck could be his last.

Allen had a hell of a run.

Four masterpieces:

  • manhattan (1979)
  • Crimes and misdemeanors (1989)
  • Another woman (1988)
  • Hannah and her sisters (1986)

Eight classics:

  • love and death (1975)
  • Annie Hall (1977)
  • BroadwayDanny Rose (1984)
  • Cairo purple rose (1985)
  • radio days (1987)
  • Husbands and Wives (1992)
  • soft and low (1999)
  • Match point (2005)

The rest of his films, with a few exceptions, go from good to good. Woody Allen is our greatest living director and I hope he lives forever. I also hope he’s as blasé about this McCarthyism as he lets on in his interviews, that he takes comfort in his wife, his kids, and the fact that he’s innocent.

Let’s hope the leftist fascists will allow Americans to see Stroke of luckwhich receives positive reviews in Venice.
