Sorry, Woody. This Time You've Gone Too Far.

Woody Allen has responded to his former adoptive daughter, Dylan Farrow's allegations of molestation by attacking her mother, Mia Farrow.

"Of course, I did not molest Dylan," writes Allen. "I loved her and hope one day she will grasp how she has been cheated out of having a loving father and exploited by a mother more interested in her own festering anger than her daughter's well-being."

So, Woody, bugging out with Dylan's mother's adopted teenage daughter, Soon-Yi Previn, wasn't itself cheating Dylan 'out of having a loving father'?  Really?  You're the one who not only walked out of your marriage to Mia Farrow but walked out with her adopted daughter on your way out the door and yet Mia Farrow is vindictive? 

Woody, thanks for reminding us what a dirtbag you are.

I read Dylan Farrow's allegations. I believe she is telling the truth. He is indeed a dirt-bag and a shithole. Marrying Soon-Yi Previn gives a strong hint as to what this shithole is capable of.

"A team of child abuse specialists from the Yale-New Haven Hospital, brought in to the case by PROSECUTORS and police, concluded that Dylan Farrow had not been molested." somehow doesn't even cause some doubt.

Well, I do think he's a dirt bag. But I'm uncertain about this particular allegation. Don't think anyone knows enough to be sure. In a case like this, I'm not sure anyone will know enough to be sure even if it goes to some kind of trial and there's a verdict.

I do like some of his movies though. The ability of jerks to make excellent art is one of the things that annoys me by complicating my ethical world.
