  1. It also seems that there is a 2 and a half hour long (!) documentary on YouTube showing Woody's side of the case. It does not seem that there has ever been a documentary showing both side of the case.
  2. The thing is though that even though Mia is a good actress, her positions look odd even without backstories involved. I mean she has been one of the biggest supporters of Polanski (her Rosemary's Baby) for years, and that is a bit hard to reconcile with this case and what has been said. And Moses was pretty much backed up by Mia's former servants including one who spoke of a lurid sleeping arrangement that I don't wish to get into. And that is an accusation not made by Moses, Soon-Yi, Woody, et all. That's from a source that was once connected to but is outside of the clan. As for false c
  3. The one other child who ultimately reconciled with Woody wrote this in 2018. http://mosesfarrow.blogspot.com/2018/05/a-son-speaks-out-by-moses-farrow.html Plus him, you also have her former servants, all of whom, spoke about bizarre perversities, and you even had other Hollywood figures make comments against Mia, such as Katharine Hepburn.
  4. A rebuttal to the series: https://toisto.net/2021/02/16/allen-v-farrow-hbo-documentary-series/
  5. BTW, Sinatra isn't Ronan's father. Nancy Sinatra said her father had a surgery that made his fathering children impossible long before Ronan's birth in 1987.
  6. Yeah, Mia is front and center and in front of the camera. She was pictured in the Wall Street Journal yesterday.
  7. I've also heard enough about Mia over the years to say this. She is a good actress, but an individual who makes the Joan Crawford of Mommie Dearest look like Donna Reed. She's a terrifying person.
  8. The case has become like a s*c*a*b that tabloids and others refuse to leave alone, and that is all because of Mia Farrow, who refuses to let it disappear into the night. Although the court battle ended in 1993, she brought the allegations up again in 2005, 2014, 2016, 2017, and now 2021. It again presents that Woody is guilty, but I guess that just happens to ignore the entire fact that two medical boards (one of the state of New York and one from Yale university) did a complete gynecological exam on the girl and there were no signs of any sexual abuse.

  10. Please let the channel continue to exist. I don't want to lose it or the films on it.
  11. I was born 20 years after 1975. I first saw Citizen Kane when I was about 16, and I loved it . It was a masterpiece, a glorious film. It prompted me to dig deeper with movies, and in the decade since I've gone hog wild on watching films, as one can see from my personal viewing page with all 4,592 films: https://letterboxd.com/BCarr95/. (yes, the name on the page is my real name) Admittedly, I have been on a recent run of watching more recent films (largely due to getting through what I need to on Netflix, because I really don't like to subscribe to them more than one month a year, plus a proj
  12. Battlefield Earth was a scientology-inspired space film. Travolta was eager about the material but he was the only one. The film was a massive financial fiasco (losing $70 million), and was generally regarded as one of the worst movies ever made. Sampling of reviews:
  13. Madonna has 9 Razzies (Shanghai Surprise, Who's That Girl, Body of Evidence, Four Rooms, The Next Best Thing, Swept Away [2 here, one for being in the Worst Screen Couple of the year] , Die Another Day [which was only a 2 minute camo], and a special designation for Worst Actress of the 20th Century), plus 7 more nominations. As Meryl Streep is to the Oscars, Madonna is to the Razzies.
  14. Yes, it's true the director didn't work again after this, but he had already been weakened because he had directed that 90s Razzie juggernaut Striptease. As I said, I did like this film (Isn't She Great) a lot, but I know I'm in the minority on it. I like how old-fashioned it is. The Razzie went (yet again) that year to Madonna, in The Next Best Thing, the saga of a woman and her gay friend (Rupert Everett) who accidentally slept together while they were both dead drunk resulting in her pregnancy. It leads to a big custody battle. That film received abysmal reviews , worse than Midler's
  15. The Libby columns are often such great fun too. (Even if I wish there had been a second volume of the collected columns. The first one was a hoot)
  16. Yes. He did write it. Perhaps the issue some had with the film is that it is not as "outrageous" as some might have hoped. Oh sure, Susann and her friend have some very provocative lines , and details about sex, anotomy, and Valley of the Dolls are brought up, but unlike one of Jackie's books, there is no bedroom action onscreen. It's also more of a comedy drama, with the comedy coming though her being over the top, and the drama being that she achieved her success while suffering from cancer that would claim her in 1974. (a fault in the film is that it mixes up dates a lot near the end; Sus
  17. Can one consider a performance to be brave even when one hasn't seen it? I never saw 2003's In the Cut (sounded way too brutal for me), but I think it took real bravery for Meg Ryan, one of the golden girls of 90s Romantic comedies, to play so far against type as a highly sensual individual living a down and dirty existence in a provocative erotic thriller juxtaposing graphic sex scenes and gory dismemberment murders.
  18. As it so happens, I just saw Isn't She Great. It was a free view being an ex-library video that I salvaged last year rather than to have it sent to the garbage incinerator since nobody else seemingly wants VHS tapes anymore. Maybe it was the rock bottom expectations going in, maybe that I was just coming off another film that really disappointed me, or maybe that I grew up with Bette Midler films (hello, Beaches), but I found myself really liking it. (I'm sorry). it was rather sweet and charming, even despite having some of the lewdest opening credits I have ever seen, with the crew names appe
  19. It's wonderfully bittersweet. Very gentle and humane. Its one of my favorites from the 70s.
  20. Only seen 7 2020 films so far... Ma Rainey's Black Bottom was very good. (9/10) Emma was charming (8.5/10) The Trial of the Chicago 7 has a firm, nicely handled script plus some flair (8/10) Onward was lesser Pixar, but had its moments (7.5/10) Let Them All Talk was a bit too wordy for its own good (6/10) Pieces of a Woman preened itself too much of its own importance and was empty other that Ellen Burstyn's too-brief supporting part (5.5/10) Mank was a major letdown (4/10)
  21. I was born in 1995. By that point, most of the big classic stars were either elderly or gone. Even fewer are alive now, and most are gone. Sometimes I think about the fact that they are all gone in films of the 30s and 40s, but not often. They live every time you see one of their films, and ones favorite actors and actresses begin to feel like friends. it doesn't bother me. Most of my favorite films were years ago.
  22. BTW, the Grammys I never forgive: Record of the Year and Song of the Year in 1989 to "Don't Worry Be Happy", or the song that makes me wish I could drive off a cliff like Thelma and Louise every time I hear its noxious notes....
  23. An episode of the sketch comedy In Living Color in the early 90s suggested that Marlee Matlin would record a rap album.....
