Woody Allen Responds To Dylan Farrows Letter

Ok. Woody has responded to Dylan's accusations, guns blazing. I read the below earlier...still bleary-eyed from waking up without my coffee from a late night at work, and I thought a few things: First, the guy can write. Second, of all the children that he and Mia had raised, one stands with him, that is Moses, and he makes sure we know that Moses doesn't believe Dylan. Third, he makes some damn good and valid points. Years of practice? Just the truth? He passed lie detectors when originally accused. Mia Farrow refused to take one. Forth, and most important.

"The Music Man", 1962 – "Rock Island"

"YOU GOTTA KNOW THE TERRITORY" "LOOK! WHAT D'YA TALK, WHAT D'YA TALK, WHAT D'YA TALK, WHAT D'YA TALK!" What up yo. I used to watch this one with my Mom.

Listening to them perform this...watching them perform this...me […]

A scene about quiet truths shared between two guys, both at the crossroads, both hurting, and both up too late. It became the soul of the movie. In between takes, Hoffman spoke to no one. He listened only to his headset, only to the words of […]

Philip Seymour Hoffman 1967 – 2014 In Memoriam

  Fuck. Goddamn it man.... what a talent I'm at a loss for words. He was a fine actor. I don't know what he had to do to get those performances out... I don't know how it happened. I just read some trade magazine post that he only had 7 days if filming left on Hunger Games To which I say Fuck off. Who cares about footage. About a film. They will deal with it. Just like the fast and furious movies when Paul Walker passed. I didn't want to hear about the future of those films. These are men. […]
