    You can only interview those that want to be interviewed on camera. So take your complains about the lack of Allen and his partner's side of the story to him.

    I believe Dylan Farrow. Listen to the victims of abuse. Woody Allen is a powerful, manipulative, abusive, pedophile who belongs in jail. The doc is well made and takes various perspectives of those affected.

    Disgusting pedophile Woody Allen is finally getting exposed for the sick child molester he always was. Too little too late of course, but Hollywood is second only to the catholic church when it comes to protecting the powerful abusers in their midst. As for the deranged freaks who feel the need to defend him in every online space one can only hope they get put on a list.

    First episode was very nuanced and well-researched, if more than a little hard to watch for obvious reasons. Seriously, the guy married his step daughter and people still defend him. STILL. I'll be interested to see what new information the next three episodes bring to the table.

    Dylan’s motives are impossible to fault: She tells the filmmakers that she wants to share her experiences again so that others who have endured what she has feel less alone. She deserves to get to do that, and if more exposure brings catharsis, then so be it. But the paradox is that in portraying events so selectively, Allen v. Farrow leaves too much room for yet another public wrangling.

    Seen as a family quilt sewn with cherished home movies and old photos, placed next to recently filmed shots of Farrow sequestered at the family's Connecticut retreat, the series is a devastating tragedy. ... A few production aspects of "Allen v. Farrow" are questionable. ... But you can't deny the reality of the adult Dylan Farrow's uncontrollable shuddering at the memory of her abuse.

    Allen v. Farrow is a fascinating deep dive into a case that has been all over the news media for almost 30 years now, even if it’s admittedly a one-sided account.
