Allen v. Farrow (2021) – A Quick Capsule TV Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Damn.  If you had ANY doubt about who Woody Allen really is then this documentary, from Oscar nominated filmmaker Amy Ziering, will finally put you right.  Allen is a child molester.   Yes read it again… Woody Allen is a child molester.  This documentary lays it out in often graphic detail.  For me, across the 4 episodes, it’s evidence in irrefutable.  What’s most shocking is how ‘normal’ this feels these days… talking or hearing about a famous director, actor or  filmmaker in this way. It’s no longer shocking.   From Weinstein, Cosby and Spacey to Singer, R Kelly and, well many more, it’s become a thing of near ‘routine’ to hear these stories… what’s even scarier is how Hollywood still allows Allen to work.  So… powerful and shocking it may be but I doubt it will be the last we hear of Allen in these regards.

Best Bit: This is a brutally honest look at abuse and it’s impact

Phil’s Quick Capsule ... Review: Fast Five is that rare thing…a good sequel that probably ends up being one the strongest films in the franchise so far.  Vin Diesel is in good form, Paul…
