My friends and I were having a discussion yesterday about film director Woody Allen.
For those of you who might not know this about him, he is infamous for marrying his step-daughter (well, adopted daughter of his ex-wife Mia Farrow).
This obviously leaves a creep factor for Allen, but I can't really deny his talent.
As scandalous as it is, I can see why people refuse to watch his films just because of this fact. But why can't people just see a piece of work for what it is? Allen is getting nominated/recognized for his work, not his personal life!
It's understandable not to pay for a film. But it is a bit silly to dislike something just because of the person behind it. ENJOY the piece of art! Not the person!!
Does this make sense?
So my point is: even though I am weirded out by Woody Allen, I think he is an extraordinarily talented writer/director.
And for that, I actually thank him for making a film that has solidified itself onto my top 20 list (if not top 10).
