'Massive buzz': Pre-publicity for 'Midnight in Paris' has focused on Carla Bruni's big screen debut. The former supermodel is said to have a 'small' but 'respectable' part in Woody Allen's new comedy
...A “demented lunatic” could be a Republican. Allen thinks this is a big laugh line. He’s right! The tiny audience that will see this movie will laugh. They know exactly what to expect from an Allen movie and they come to have their prejudices reinforced. Almost like they’re ….closed-minded reactionaries.
ALVY: Boy, those guys in the French Resistance were really brave….
ANNIE: I don't know, sometimes I ask myself how I'd stand up under torture.
ALVY: You? You kiddin'? If the Gestapo would take away your Bloomingdale's charge card, you'd tell 'em everything.”
--Woody Allen, “Annie Hall”
(Barry Rubin)Unfortunately, most of the Western elite today — including Woody Allen himself — has failed what might be called the Bloomingdale’s credit card test. They are good at fantasizing heroism but not very good at doing much in real life. Their specialty is posturing against non-existent or ludicrous threats against which everyone they know is also arrayed. I can’t prove it but I sort of think they would not only have rejected joining the French Resistance, they would have been on the other side in order to keep their jobs and prestige. (How I Learned About Courage From an Arab Marxist and About Cowardice From Western Phony “Liberals”)
While the audience is forced to suspend disbelief for a time travel movie, it is the movies alleged present which seemed completely unrealistic. Allen seems to think a cockblocking Republican father in law is the biggest threat to his existence, when most of us are trying to defend our women these days from an international elite that would gladly harem our sisters, mothers and wives.
