Wishing Obama Was Dictator...
I can tolerate Annie Hall (because of the 'author coming from behind the potted plant' quote) and Mighty Aphrodite (because I have a thing for Greek mythology), but for the most part I think Woody Allen's movies are a bit Emperor's New Clothes. "Intellectuals" feel they have to like him and consider those that don't "troglodytes"...but much like Roman Polanski, the dude is politely excused for being a pedophile because he deemed talented...
But now he's shown that he's not only warped when it comes to sleeping with children in his care, but wold affairs and history as well:
"In an interview published by Spanish language newspaper La Vanguardia (that we translated), Allen says “I am pleased with Obama. I think he’s brilliant. The Republican Party should get out of his way and stop trying to hurt him.”
The director said "it would be good…if he could be a dictator for a few years because he could do a lot of good things quickly."
Of course, Allen has a famously strange relationship with reality. The director took nude photos of his lover Mia Farrow's teen-age adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn, and then ended up marrying her after separating from Farrow.
Farrow also said he molested their seven-year-old adopted daughter, Dylan. A judge refused to act on the charges, but called his relationship with Soon-Yi "grossly inappropriate." (source)
