Woody Allen's World Of Conceptual Poetry

'Why does Woody still make movies? '
Brickman asked. 'Because he can.
Because they still let him.'
He laughed
and added:
'I don't think people understand the degree to which Woody
is relentlessly middle-class.
From what I gather he's a good family man.
He's a very good father, perhaps surprisingly so.
He has a very strong,
perhaps overwhelming work ethic.
I don't think he knows how
not to get up in the morning,
get on the treadmill,
practice the clarinet, write.'

Allen ventured a slightly different explanation.
'You know in a mental institution they sometimes give a person some clay or some basket weaving? ' he said.
'It's the therapy of moviemaking that has been good in my life.
If you don't work, it's unhealthy—for me, particularly unhealthy.
I could sit here suffering from morbid introspection, ruing my mortality, being anxious.
But it's very therapeutic to get up and think,
Can I get this actor; does my third act work? All these solvable problems that are delightful puzzles,
as opposed to the great puzzles of
life that are unsolvable, or that have
very bad solutions. So I get pleasure from doing this.
It's m
y
version
of

basket weaving.'
