Lionel Chetwynd and I feature discussion of Woody Allen and his tired career and tired new film Vicki Cristina Barcelona for our second Poliwood venture on Pajamas TV.  Have a look– it’s free, without subscription.

Lionel and I also talk about our mutual friend – Richard Dreyfuss.  We both wrote movies for him and have known Richard for a loooong time.  Dreyfuss is not a typical, kneejerk H’wood liberal a la Robbins-Sarandon.  He can surprise with his opinions and he recently had some mean things to say about Oliver Stone’s W. while appearing on The View.  This is all the more surprising since Richard plays Dick Cheney in the film.  You usually don’t badmouth movies you acted in.  He must have really hated it.  He compared Oliver to Sean Hannity.  Enough said.

Anyway, suggestions for future Poliwood shows are more than welcome.  We have to do one a week!
