Should we stop watching Woody Allen movies?
The hero, according to the script, “makes a fool of himself over every ambitious starlet and model.” And it's hardly the first time Allen has celebrated man-girl love. The critically acclaimed "Manhattan" depicted Allen having an affair with a 17-year-old high school girl (Margot Hemingway).
He's actually made this movie type so many times it's predictable, boring and egregious. His critics say it's time to stop tolerating his actual flaunting of his young-girl fetish, it's just gross and wrong.
Sounds like almost every other Allen movie ever made. Can’t wait!
Allen is the most Oscar-nominated screenwriter of all time. Some argue putting his entire catalog in the trash based on his personal life makes no sense. Do we evaluate the personal conduct of every artist whose music we buy, books we read or whose art we enjoy?
