Director Woody Allen has dismissed the Sept. 11 attacks as a negligible
historical event not worthy of the silver screen.
The Melinda and Melinda filmmaker regards the al-Qaeda attacks on America’s
east coast as a minor disaster compared to other historical events.
Allen tells PageSix.com, “As a filmmaker, I’m not interested in 9/11. It’s
too small, history overwhelms it. The history of the world is like: He kills
me, I kill him, only with different cosmetics and different castings.
“So in 2001, some fanatics killed some Americans, and now some Americans are
killing some Iraqis. And in my childhood, some Nazis killed Jews. And now, some
Jewish people and some Palestinians are killing each other.
“Political questions, if you go back thousands of years, are ephemeral – not
important. History is the same thing over and over again.”
