Oh my fucking god what a relief I can't believe this almost happened.
Louis C.K.’s ‘I Love You, Daddy’ Premiere Canceled, Colbert Spot Scrapped
The premiere of Louis C.K.’s new film I Love You, Daddy set for tonight in New York has been scrapped at the last minute, Deadline has confirmed. It comes as the comedian’s planned appearance on tonight’s Late Show With Stephen Colbert tonight was also nixed. However, Orchard is still planning a Nov. 17 release for the film.
"Last minute" why were you ever thinking about showing this film oh my fucking god. Then again Louis C.K. why did you even make this and why is anyone still releasing it are you kidding me.
I really shouldn't be surprised. The world is full to the brim of middle aged, ugly white men making self-indulgent "art" about how they want to bone young women/girls.
I can't remember if I blogged about this before or if it was one of those things that was just too horrifying to hold in my brain for more than a few seconds. Louis C.K., who has been accused by multiple female comedians of sexually predatory behavior up to an including assault, decided to make one of his boring "dark comedies," this time about pedophilia, which is not fucking funny.
CK plays Glen Topher and Moretz his daughter, who is seduced by a much older, notoriously creepy director and possible pedophile (Malkovich).
This was badly timed when it was announced and the timing has only gotten continually worse with the (wonderful) anti-sexual predator climate of the industry and media in general right now and the continuing flow of accusations against powerful white men, plus old accusations finally coming to mainstream attention. Yet Louis C.K., being the kind of powerful white man he is, has not stopped, and is insisting on giving the world something it extremely does not need right now or ever.
But at least some of the industry has come to its senses, albeit at the last minute.
