Allen, Woody: Auteur, Vision (LImits)

Woody Allen, around Deconstructing Harry (1997):

“I can make any film I want to make. Any subject–comic, serious. I can cast who I want to cast. I can reshoot anything I want as long as I stay in the budget. I control the ads, the trailers, the music.”

Freak control up to the 1992 scandal and beyond, my explain the mediocrity of many of his films.
