Kate Winslet Criticized For Calling Woody Allen A Woman 'On Some Level'

"In this deliberately created fog, A-list actors agree to appear in Allen's films and journalists tend to avoid the subject". But everyone in "Wonder Wheel" goes on and on in stiff, wordy monologues that play like knock-offs of Odets, William Inge, Tennessee Williams, and other heavy hitters from the era of "serious" Broadway and "Playhouse 90".

Allen, now 82, has continued to work in Hollywood, releasing a six-part television series with Amazon last year and directing this year's film Wonder Wheel, which stars Kate Winslet, Jim Belushi and Justin Timberlake.

"I think on some level Woody is a woman", Winslet joked to the Sydney Morning Herald. His movies have always just been kinda gross in this regard, and I'd argue that Timberlake's Mickey is hardly presented as a hero. Having thought it all through, you put it to one side and just work with the person. For Woody Allen, what's not to like about that? His newest, Wonder Wheel, has the unprecedented distinction of being both-it's a toothless, slipshod reshuffling of Allen's usual lazy tropes (miserable) and an incontrovertible reminder of the appalling rumors that surround his personal life (horrible). He's a goner! "The heart has its own hieroglyphics", he says, half-quoting Allen's own public explanation ("The heart wants what it wants") for his leaving his longtime partner Mia Farrow for her adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn.

But her defense of the controversial director has earned her critics - including Allen's own daughter Dylan Farrow, who alleged in 2014 that he sexually assaulted her starting when she was 7 years old.

"I didn't know Woody and I don't know anything about that family", she told the Times.

National Hockey League to accept $650million Seattle expansion application
There are 31 National Hockey League franchises with the Western Conference holding 15 and the Eastern Conference having 16. Bettman said the process of setting up a team in Seattle would be similar to what happened for Las Vegas, according to K5.

In an op-ed piece for the LA Times, Farrow is questioning why the trending movement, "me too" is seemingly overlooking Allen who she has accused of sexual misconduct for decades. I've heard and read exactly what you've heard and read. "That's all I can say", she added.

It's worth pointing out that despite active criminal investigations in New York, Los Angeles, London, and Park City, Utah, Weinstein has never been convicted of anything either. Read Dylan's full op-ed HERE. It's important that there is an uprising.

Here's my theory of how this movie came to be: Allen stayed up late one night watching Turner Classics and caught an airing of "Clash by Night", Fritz Lang's stagy 1952 semi-noir, based on a Clifford Odets play, in which Barbara Stanwyck plays a bitter waterfront tootsie who cheats on her lumpen husband (Paul Douglas) with local stud Robert Ryan. "I could [only] know my experience". But in his decision against Allen in the custody case, Justice Elliott Wilk of the Connecticut State Supreme Court questioned the Yale-New Haven report findings. "You know, it's all very hard to talk about...." she said. In a November interview with Terry Gross on NPR's Fresh Air, Gerwig said in response to a question about Allen: "I think I'm living in that space of fear of being anxious about how I talk about it and what I say. It works for Woody Allen still". Mickey begins to question their affair when he starts to develop feelings for Ginny's step-daughter, Carolina (Juno Temple), a woman on the run from her gangster husband who returns to her father in hopes of safety and protection.

"It isn't just power that allows men accused of sexual abuse to keep their careers and their secrets", she writes. "It is also our collective choice to see simple situations as complicated and obvious conclusions as a matter of 'who can say?'" Farrow concluded.

Ultimately, Dylan wants everyone to be aware that while the "system" worked for Harvey Weinstein and other men for decades but eventually crashed, it's still working for Allen today - he's even now shooting a new film with no disruptions, and has said in the past that he's "moved so far past" the allegations made against him.
