A Meaningless Little Flicker

Newsweek's Jennie Yabroff interviewed Woody Allen earlier this fall. The results are the same as the lions share of previous interviews, although Yabroff has done her homework. This always makes the interview better. Too bad NW didn't give her more space.

Allen comes off the same as ever.
"Your perception of time changes as you get older, because you see how brief everything is," he says. "You see how meaningless … I don't want to depress you, but it's a meaningless little flicker."
NW ran another Allen-related item in July, an interview with Patricia Clarkson.
Does he give a lot of direction?

He's completely hands off, and that's the beauty of Woody Allen. I think he's the least precious director I've ever worked with.
