A documentary that follows a billionaire couple as they begin construction on a mansion inspired by Versailles. During the next two years, their empire, fueled by the real estate bubble and cheap money, falters due to the economic crisis.
Iconic writer, director, actor, comedian, and musician Woody Allen allowed his life and creative process to be documented on-camera for the first time. With this unprecedented access, Emmy-winning, Oscar-nominated filmmaker Robert Weide followed the notoriously private film legend over a year and a half to create the ultimate film biography. Woody Allen: A Documentary chronicles Allen's career - from teen writer to Sid Caeser's TV scribe, from standup comedian to award-winning writer-director averaging one film-per-year for more than 40 years. Exploring Allen's writing habits, casting, directing, and relationship with his actors first-hand, new interviews with A-listers, writing partners, family and friends provide insight and backstory to the usually inscrutable filmmaker.

For a documentary that lasted two episodes, I didn't feel like I learned as much as I could about Woody Allen. A superb documentary about a comic genius. I can't wait to go back and catch some of his work from the last seven years. That said, for as much as he is a great filmmaker, it reminded me that a person can still have a car wreck of a personal life while being busted for molesting others for example Soon Yi in the 1980's, his 7-year old daughter Dylan too but the charges were dropped. 3. Woody Allen had naked photos of a 21-year old Soon Yi. Not a pedophile. 4. Woody Allen and Soon Yi got married when she was 27. Not a pedophile. Maybe a weird dude, but nothing illegal. How he is still a free man is beyond me. This mans name is synonomous with pedophilia but he can adopt n live a free life! I wouldn't leave my Chinese poodle around this perv. He goes to these Asian Countries, because they'll let his old nasty white ass get away with it.
His unusual lifestyle choices aside, I think he is a genius.
