Woody Allen Turns 70 Today
Yes, it's true. He has not made a film worthy of remembrance in over a decade (I've yet to see Match Point so this may no longer apply), he's been essentially chased out of the American film industry into the shelter of the BBC, and . . . if certain testimony in certain child custody hearings is to be believed . . . he has some very unappetizing things crawling around in his head. But we here at If Charlie Parker Was a Gunslinger choose to remember those moments of errant glory, when he was a writer and director of striking skill and ambition; and with such memories do we wish Woody Allen all our best as he turns 70 today and sails into the mystic tides of a still discernible future.
