The always-insightful Robert Weide has a new Woody Allen defense titled “The Truth About Woody Allen (Part II)“, which was posted on 4.8.19. If you haven’t read Weide’s other knowledgeable, first-hand defenses of Allen I highly recommend them.
The most noteworthy part of Weide’s latest essay has to do with the fate of Allen’s long-delayed/suspended “Rainy Day in New York,” which Amazon has refused to distribute and which Allen is now suing them over. Weide is saying that it may be screened later this year in, of all places, Mexico.
“One thing I know for sure [is that] the Farrows may succeed in throwing some road blocks in Woody’s way, but they can’t stop him. “A Rainy Day in New York” is already due to come out in theaters overseas, and will eventually be released in the states — even if not by Amazon.”
Weide’s source is a January ’19 article in Medio, which mentions that the Mexico-based Latam Pictures are ready to release ‘Rainy Day.’
