Yes, he does.  You would think he'd want to know for sure.

I don't know about Allen's sexual proclivities, and I don't much care.  The man is well into his 70's, he has made his mark on this society, it's time to let it go.  I have seen his latest movie "Blue Jasmine" and found the performance therein by Cate Blanchett to be amazing.  The movie was very good, but the performance by Blanchett will likely win her an Oscar.

Roman :Polanski "made his mark on society" too. Time to let what he did go too? I don't give a crap if the guy is the greatest thing in film since Cecil B. DeMille, Frank Capra,etc. Take your pick. The man's a pervert, and quite possibly a pedophile and serial child molester. And no "very good" movie can make up for that.

Things do happen... in the wee small hours of the morning.
Great album, by the way. Maybe his best.

Yes, he certainly does.

There's quite a difference between Polanski and Allen.  Polanski actually fled the law and the legal system.  That cannot be easily forgiven.  Allen has never been charged or convicted of anything, except in a court of public opinion.

You've got his stepdaughter saying he molested her when she was 7 yrs. old. you've got the nude pictures he took of his other stepdaughter, now his wife, when she was a teen. Think the first girl is lying? What do you want, a home movie to persuade you?

Polanski took off after his plea, which came about because the girl, 13 at the time, was initially reluctant to talk, then changed her mind. Allen got luckier.  The girl didn't push it. Doesn't make him one iota better than Polanski. They both should do time. They both sho  :shrug:uld rot in hell.

I think our court system has a little more importance than our tabloids.  Just me, I guess.  Maybe we should judge and convict everyone for what appears in the tabloids.

I have been wondering about that movie, but haven't gotten around to going to see it yet.  Thanks for that input--its still here at our theater--hopefully will be this coming weekend.

Used to be a prosecutor. What the girl was quoted as saying rings true with a lot of victims of molestation. And you can't get to the court system when the girl [as here] declines to cooperate in the prosecution. Doesn't mean she's a liar. And while that means Allen is 'not guilty' in the eyes of the law, it DOESN'T mean he is innocent of some heinous allegations.

He resembles Sinaatra from the waist down.  If you look at a photo of Mia Farrow in her Rosemary's Baby days you can see the striking resemblance between her and her son.  It is a blessing that he looks nothing like Woody Allen (who may or not be his biological dad).  Only a DNA swab will reveal the truth.

If you used to be a prosecutor, then you must recognize the difference between something that has gone through the process of legal discovery and something that is reported in the press.

I've also dealt with the cases of child victims, many of whom won't testify. And your reliance on the lack of prosecution is a solipcism, because nothing gets to court without a complaint and/ or a swornstatement by the victim. what we have here is a statement by a woman that she was molested in the past, reported it to at least her mother, but wouldn't go along with a prosecution. we also have irrefutable evidence that the same man she accused of molesting her took nude photos of her [adopted] sibling when she was a teen, had sex with the sibling when she was no more than a young woman, in the house he shared with both girls' mother, and subsequently married her. That lends a lot of credence to the first girl. As a prosecutor, I buy it. I've seen things like it before.
