Executives at four major publishing houses said they had shot down a proposed memoir by Woody Allen that had shopped late last year, the New York Times reported on Thursday.
The publishing executives, none of whom were named by the Times, all said they decided not to make an offer for the book, citing the marketing challenges in the #MeToo era. Some publishers declined to even read the submitted manuscript, the paper said, while noting it is possible that an unidentified publisher may be moving forward with publication without a public announcement.
Several executives described the Oscar-winning filmmaker as “toxic” to the Times since the resurfacing of old accusations that Allen inappropriately touched Dylan Farrow, his then-7-year-old daughter with ex-girlfriend Mia Farrow. (Investigators found no evidence of abuse, and Allen has repeatedly denied the accusations.)
“The Proposal,” Jill Magid’s captivatingly wily documentary about her attempt to liberate the archives of the renowned Mexican architect Luis Barragán, wears many faces. Detailing at once an art project and a rescue mission, a love triangle and an elaborate, outlandish bargain, the movie has a surface serenity that belies its fuming emotions.
In this, it mirrors the three-year correspondence between Magid (a writer and artist who once trained as a spy), and the controller of the archives, Federica Zanco. Rumored to have acquired them in the mid-1990s as an engagement gift from her fiancé, the owner of a Swiss design conglomerate, Zanco rigidly guards them from all but limited public access in her foundation near Basel. Faced with major obstacles to mounting her own exhibition on Barragán (who died in 1988), Magid embarks on an epistolary seduction of increasing flattery and desperationAs Magid putters around Barragán’s Mexico City studio, researching and plotting and painting her toenails, her voice-over pleas to Zanco — and the creamily polite rebuffs — turn the movie into a delicate duel between two women armed with obsessions for the same man. They will finally meet in a Swiss cafe, filmed hazily through a window (Jarred Alterman’s cinematography is consistently dreamy); yet Zanco’s romantically fuzzy aspect is fitting in a film that feels only tangentially concerned with corporate control of art.
“Everything happens for a reason,” a character says in “What/If,” but it’s not clear what the reason is behind this new Netflix drama, a peculiar mashup of producer Mike Kelley’s last series, “Revenge,” and an overt riff on the movie “Indecent Proposal.” Renee Zellweger headlines the cast, but her toothy role to move the show into the “Yes/Do” watch category.
The debt to “Revenge,” a twisty ABC series, is that one of the characters appears to be playing a very long game, which involves manipulating those around her. The difference is while the motivation for those events was explicitly stated by the title, the impetus here remains hazy, though not enough of a mystery to make the episodes much more than mildly watchable.
The centerpiece here is again a young woman, Lisa (“Suburgatory’s” Jane Levy), who is desperate to launch a medical-tech startup, but struggling to find financing. She eventually finds a backer in the form of Zellweger’s wealthy investor Anne Montgomery, but there’s a hitch: If you want my support, how about a night with your bartender husband, Sean (Blake Jenner)?
Newlyweds Sean and Lisa aren’t the only ones facing moral dilemmas, in a show that overflows with them. The tributary plots involve their friends and family, including Marcos (Juan Castano), who is somewhat dangerously drawing a third party into his relationship; and Angela (Samantha Ware), a married medical resident who is having an affair with her boss (Dave Annable), with all the complications that entails.
Unfortunately, most of those threads feel mostly like killing time until the focus gets back to Zellweger, who provides a lot of portentous advice like “You must be willing to make the hard choices, do the unpleasant things” and “True greatness only comes to those willing to pursue it at any cost.”
While there’s something fairly juicy about turning the “Indecent Proposal” gender dynamic on its head (the 1993 movie that presented Demi Moore and Woody Harrelson with that dilemma is referenced), Zellweger at times seems to have parachuted in from a different show — as if everyone else is doing a network soap, and she’s starring in a revival of “Basic Instinct.”
That aspect of the show should trigger curiosity — especially with Zellweger’s Judy Garland biopic coming up — and in pay-TV circles, that alone is something of a win. Still, whatever sizzle there is baked into the premise, in the execution, “What/If” feels a little too close to “So what?”
