Allen v. Farrow

Critics Consensus

Allen v. Farrow unearths new evidence in a well-known case to craft a compelling - if one-sided - indictment of society's complicity in upholding powerful people over seeking justice for those they've wronged.

Audience Reviews for Allen v. Farrow: Miniseries

    This comes off as an informative documentary, loaded with relevant interviews, and "evidence" which includes damning anecdotes resulting in a compelling argument - against the innocence of Woody Allen. When you consider the overall tone and message, you might start to see that it's essentially propaganda in favor of Allen's ex wife, an experienced actress who effects a pitch perfect hapless victim demeanor that belies the fact that she was on fire to ruin him for striking up a romantic relationship with her (not his) adult adoptive daughter, Soon-Yi Previn. When you consider the fact that the supposed most damning transgression occurred in the midst of custody and support negotiations AND that Allen was in the early days of a new relationship (I.e. In love) with his eventual wife (married for 25 years now) it seems more than a little far fetched that anyone in that position would dare risk contaminating a budding romantic relationship let alone would even have the desire to do so. And the most compelling bit of truth concerning all this - that Allen was never charged with a crime, since investigative authorities never found credible evidence to support Mia's (and Dylan's) claim. Anyone who's been around the block knows well that scorned soon to be ex-wives tend to use their children as pawns in battles for custody and support, and the filmmakers here seem to capitalize on that dynamic to their benefit by siding with the "victim" and creating a particularly salacious narrative that they know will draw viewers. I would caution anyone to at least seek out and consider the facts in any opposing arguments against anything they produce.

    Absolute essential viewing for every American. Dylan Farrow's story deserves to be heard. Woody Allen is revealed for what he is and the horrors he has committed. Extraordinarily compelling TV.

    I was very afraid to see this documentary. I was afraid to see Allen win in the public arena once again. As a psychologist I spent years fighting with my peers over Woody Allen's idolatry in academia. Finally Dylan had some form of public justice.

    Excellent documentary. Highly recommended.

    I thought the disgust that seemed to always rise up around Allen had to do with the fact that he creepily married his partner's daughter and ashamedly had no idea it was related to actions that are somehow even considerably worse.

    Well made! Compelling. It's hard to argue with facts from very different sources. I never "loved" Woody Allen. His films always seemed boring and out of my scope of interests. Perhaps because he always seemed like a "creepy old man" to me. It's almost like my spirit/heart sensed that darkness in him. The way he has justified himself by excusing his perverse ways to even making it "normal" in his films is truly telling.. and disturbing. Always an older man with a much younger, if not under aged, woman. He's disgusting in every sense of the word. It's so tough to watch. I had to break it up so I could see it. Let alone innocent Dylan Farrow being tormented, daily by this monster. My only comfort is that he will have his day before God. And so will all those NY "high powered" people who have helped him stay of our jail, where he belongs.

    Allen v Farrow is a PR stunt masqueradinggas documentary. The Farrow family is likely sincere in their no-holds-barred enthusiasm for trotting out their familiar list of their own greatest hits. The filmmakers, aided by HBO, who have dedicated 4 hours of air time to a topic far less necessary or revelatory than, say, almost anything truly newsworthy, playing a losing strategy by overloading and repeating arguments. Ms. Farrow, mere, is the embodiment of waif-ish pest. Her vulnerability has been well developed over a career spent cultivating a rather precious vulnerability. The recordings of her telephone conversations with Allen are striking in their softness and lack of anger, resentment and aggression. But then, as mother protecting her child, it all sounds too careful, too premeditatedly 'generous'. By contrast, I heard Allen's phone recordings credible in their abrupt, leave-me-out-of-this brusqueness. The filmmakers have, for reasons never provided over the span of 4 episodes, offered a position of ignoring the weight of the court's judgments. Rather, they are irked by the ruling handed down removing the taint of molestation - their aim is to breathe new life into what was previously decided. For her part, Dylan Farrow speaks at length about memories and revelations. Aided in large part by a battery of willing witnesses and professional case workers, the saga dissipates and heads toward a tedium of more-is-just-more. I was especially struck by the unapologetic energy and commitment offered in testimonies by family friends, babysitters and others who seemed delighted to pile on. Why on earth would Allen or any of his supporters have agreed to participate in this smear campaign. I think he's almost certainly had more than his fill of people labelling him as foul and depraved without such things as facts to back up their accusations.

    Definitely important and touching and wow, I'm so glad I watched this bc before that I was clueless about this. I had only heard about the Soon-Yi ordeal, not what happened to Dylan!

    Allen V Farrow presented a lot of evidence that Woody Allen IS a tremendously Powerful Man in New York, Hollywood, and in Europe. Friends in HIGH Places! It's the Good Ole Boys club as it HAS been for Centuries! The evidence, the testimony from Dylan herself, the people who were There, are NOT acting, and create a scenario that reinforces that if You are a MAN in a powerful position with a Powerful Circle of Friends-YOU can GET AWAY with anything! LITERALLY! Woody Allens MOVIES are ALL about an Older Man going after a Younger Woman in a totally innocent quirky way. And that is Most Disturbing! Because women don't see thru His motives. Woody Allen has most certainly had pedophiliac relationships his entire life. And has been praised for it because he packages it in such a way as to come across as Benign! He is the WORST pedophile that there is! Women have been denigrated for decades because of the Men's Club that has existed to KEEP Women in a subservient and submissive place in society! I'm not a Feminist by a long shot, however the fact that even in 2020/2021 Men can STILL get away with crimes that set women up to be the fall guy is horrifying. Time to peel back the curtain on PEDOs in Hollywood and degenerates across the World! Shame on these men for Traumatizing their Victims!

    It's completely one-sided. I don't like Woody Allen but this show just seems like a big commercial to put him jail. He may have done it but he may have not done it. There is reasonable doubt because experts concluded she wasn't molested.
