Woody Allen - Moralist or Idolater?

Does she mean in God? No, in teenage girls like herself.

Woody Allen is the most prolific filmmaker of our time.
His movies can be divided into two categories. A few are unique in affirming a universal Moral Order, i.e. God.
However most have the premise that God doesn't exist and human life is cruel and absurd. They promote young women and sex as a panacea. His latest movie, "Midnight in Paris" (2011) falls into this category. (More later.)
Due to people like Allen, this sex cult has taken possession of society, The whole "modern" era has been focused on sexual "liberation." This cult isn't just idolatrous; it is satanic.
Judaism lays claim to Moses, the law giver. But Talmudic Judaism has more in common with Baal worship than Moses. After money, the young blonde that Woody Allen and Larry David crave in "Whatever Works" (2009) is literally a Golden Calf.
There is a scene in "Manhattan" (1979) that made me hope Allen would emerge as a serious artist. Allen is standing beside a human skeleton in a classroom chiding a friend for some improper behavior. His friend says, "who do you think you are, God?"
Allen replies:"I've got to model myself on someone."
(Unfortunately, the movie ends with Allen agreeing with Mariel Hemingway who says, "Have a little faith!" Does she mean in God? No, in teenage girls like herself.)
Flash ahead to his greatest movie, "Crimes and Misdemeanors" (1989.) The protagonist is being blackmailed by a woman with whom he had an extramarital affair. She threatens to destroy his marriage and career. He wrestles with the decision to have her "disposed of." He waits for God's retribution. More than any movie I've seen, this film raises the questions, "Does God exist?" and "Why does He permit evil?"
Allen returns to this theme in "Cassandra's Dream" (2007) where two brothers played by Collin Farrell and Ewan McGregor agree to murder a business associate of their rich uncle. The acting and writing are superb. I couldn't believe Allen wrote this because it was so original and British.
The movie was particularly bracing because, unlike the protagonist in "Crimes & Misdemeanors," the Collin Farrell character cannot slough off his feelings of guilt. The purpose of art is to uphold spiritual truth. I felt inspired for days.
As you know, Allen has been cranking out movies annually since 1966. His latest efforts have ranged from surprisingly original and good ("You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger"; "Melinda" and "Jade Scorpion" ) to clunkers ("Smalltime Crooks" "Matchpoint" and "Scoop" ) "Vickie Christina Barcelona" was a field guide to female worship (aka "romance") and sexual perversion.
His current movie "Midnight in Paris" has critics hoodwinked. They say it is a return to his best work. Nonsense. It is terrible. He telegraphs his message by Western Union.
There is nothing more painful than watching Owen Wilson play Woody Allen, using Allen's own words. Owen Wilson will never be a Jewish nebbish.
The movie relies on the conceit that Allen can travel back to the literary heyday of 1920's Paris. He is supposed to learn that the "Good Ole Days" weren't. This might have been amusing if Hemingway, Picasso, Fitzgerald et al were satirized. But they are cardboard cutouts, secular gods sustained by Illuminati Jewish hero-worship and hype.
Allen learns his lesson by idealizing a 1920's woman who hates her own era and takes him to the 1890's "Belle Epoch" only to find the artists then also were nostalgic.
Before that, she informs him that at Catholic school, she and her friends hired a prostitute to teach them tricks which she practised on every artist in Paris. Her long resume doesn't tarnish her glamor. The modern ideal of woman is a whore.
Allen parades his arrested development as a model for others. He thinks the basis of a sound relationship is when a beautiful woman adores the same art that he does, starting with his own.
At the end, the Allen character is lost until he finds such a woman to feed his ego. Meanwhile the tiresome lyrics of Cole Porter's "Birds Do it, Bees Do It" blast away, a reminder that gays and Illuminati Jews always have partnered in spreading the gospel of sex.
Hopefully Woody Allen will discover that his universe is empty only because he banished God from it, and that his existential angst is self-induced.
Until then, he will do what Baal worshipers and satanists have done since Moses and Christ, worship their own egos and fetishes. Now that's frightening!
The universe would be less absurd if men like Allen devoted their lives to bringing God into the world. We were created to be His agents. If God allows evil, it is because we do.
If only Woody Allen had a little more faith in God.
