I Love You, Daddy (2017)
Following on the heels of last episode’s review of Woody Allen’s A RAINY DAY IN NEW YORK through the prism of our current MeToo culture, VHS Rewind heads into the center of an even more dangerous storm as our new episode focuses its attention on auteur writer-director-star Louis (serial-masturbator-in-front-of-trapped-women) CK’s, I LOVE YOU DADDY. Where the charges against Woody Allen were tried in a court of law and Woody was cleared, and may be a victim of the Me Too vigilantes, auteur Louis CK has confessed to his serial-masturbation-in-front-of-trapped-women actions – how can we put that aside when watching this directorial effort? Louis CK seems to be aping the Woody Allen look and style (shooting in black-and-white) but is auteur Louis another Woody (writing/directing-wise)? Is auteur Louis CK’s film full of neurotic characters or deeply disturbed characters, starting with Louis CK’s main character (who resembles, well, Louis CK) and including John Malkovich’s Woody-esque film director who may have molested a child? Is Chloe Grace Moretz hot in a string bikini?
