    Huge step forward.

    You hate Woody Allen because of what you FEEL about him.

    I respect your feeling; I think there is validity there; I even share it to some extent. At the very least I have an uneasiness about him, despite how much I like many of his films and performances.

    The only problem I have had with this diary & comments is the misstatements of facts. There is truth, and there is accuracy of reporting; different things. I don't have any quarrel with you expressing your perception of the truth, but I have an intense and sometimes out of proportion reverence for factual reporting.

      my memory of specifics may be hazy - but the memory of the disgust of many of us in the "business" think of him.

      i will NEVER support any of his "artistic" efforts because of his "personal" behavior.  that is my right as a "consumer" and as an artist.

      he did not deserve that recognition at the golden globes, imho, because of his behavior - any more than pete rose deserves to be in the baseball hall of fame.

      behavior has consequences.

      allen skated with the help of people willing to overlook what he did.  it doesn't matter to me that they remained married (the daughter of the woman he was having an affair with and the child he watched grow up - and lusted for) - he betrayed the trust of a child and that, to me, is unforgiveable.

      one does not "train" or "groom" children to grow up and become wives/lovers.  this is no different, in my opinion, to warren jeffs and the likes of other pedophiles.

      he met soon yi as a child and cultivated that relationship.  he is a dirty old man who got away with it.

      nothing he could do or say has any interest to me - i don't get past his personal depravity.
