Now Is Not the Time for This Louis CK Movie

Now Is Not the Time for This Louis CK Movie”

After the initial debut and reception, C.K. brushed off some of the controversy: "It's just a fucking movie", C.K.

The comedian hasn't directed a movie since 2001's bomb "Pootie Tang", but a lot has happened since then.

As more and more actresses come forward with charges of sexual assault in Hollywood, Louis C.K. drops his trailer for I Love You, Daddy. He hired a fantastic cast including Chloë Grace Moretz, John Malkovich, Rose Byrne, Charlie Day, Edie Falco, and Helen Hunt. That film is none other than I Love You, Daddy. He also got to explore a very interesting topic, that of an older man romancing a young woman. First, there's the film's style: that black and white cinematography recalls Woody Allen's Manhattan while the dialogue, joke delivery, and even font presentation recall...well, every other Woody Allen movie ever.

Asked about the "uncomfortable" conversations that arose after the premiere, C.K. said, "That's exactly what I want in a movie". Now, the first trailer for the movie has arrived and it finds C.K. making a movie that looks like a Woody Allen production while also looking like it could be a commentary on Woody Allen (and maybe even on himself). Reactions weren't especially ecstatic for the film, including my own which felt that it overstays its welcome.

I Love You, Daddy opens on November 17.
