Why Dylan Farrow’s missives make me think she’s a liar. Part 2 (People Mag)

So in part 1, I discussed my resentment of Dylan’s demand that I blindly believe her, get involved in all her crazy business, and feel bad for liking some Woody Allen films – I think I’m off the hook for enjoying ‘Without Feathers‘ since she didn’t say anything about his writing.

Overall, the open letter made me think that Dylan is either a bad writer, a substance abuser, personality disordered or some combo of the those 3 AND Mia managed to get in the final edit of that letter. I was not committed yet to the idea that Dylan was simply lying.

Of course, that’s not the end of the story. Dylan’s brother, Moses chimed in and defended his adopted father, Allen, to People magazine. Presumably, the NYT wanted to wash their hands of the whole filthy matter even though they started it; it was left to the bottom feeders, People and Hollywood Reporter, to pick up the rest of it.

In that article, Moses recounted Mia’s frightening and violent rages which the children were strongly motivated to avoid by pleasing her and the “atmosphere of fear and hate towards Allen” enforced by Mia in the home after she found the Soon-Yi pics. Of all the parties here who issued statements, I found Moses  the most credible, for whatever that’s worth. I have very little to base that opinion on, admittedly.  On the one hand, Moses is a marriage and family therapist (I verified his license online), probably has the least to gain/most to lose by stepping forward, and has said nothing that made me question him (meaning there is nothing in the published courts’ decisions that directly contradicted Moses). On the other hand, Moses spoke to People which is a disgraceful rag.

It should be remembered that 15 year old Moses wrote a letter to Judge Wilk which was read in court by Mia’s lawyer back in March 1993 – which proves there is no such thing as ‘rules of evidence’ in Family Court. Here are some quotes from that letter reported by the NYT:

“You have done a horrible, unforgivable, needy, ugly, stupid thing.”

“I hope you get so humiliated you commit suicide.”

“Mom is a great mother and she always finds the time and patience to play with us. All you did is spoil the little ones, Dylan and Satchel.”

“Everyone knows not to have an affair with your son’s sister, including that sister, but you have a special way to get that sister to think that that is O.K.”

“You probably think that Mom is telling me to say these things, like before”

That’s quite the 180 by Moses. Hey reader, do you think a 15 year old boy would sit down and write a letter like that to the Judge in his parents custody battle? Do you think it’s OK to coerce your kid into writing something like that for the world to hear? I sure as hell don’t and that is clearly what Mia did. Mia used her army of children as pawns then, and she continues to do so. I do not see how this can be denied, but if anyone has a well reasoned argument showing I am wrong on this point, please post a comment.

Here’s a 1992 article with the Farrow kids trashing Woody while St. Mia stays above the fray. In my opinion, it’s trashy to permit your minor children speak to the press like this while you stay silent, but you know what they say about opinions.

This is really all about Dylan – right, Dylan? – let’s get back to what she has to say. I am going to cut to the chase here. This is what she had to say about Moses,

“He has betrayed me in the cruelest way imaginable, and betrayed my family and my mother who has loved him since day one. His betrayal is the lowest form of evil that I could ever imagine.”

THAT is the statement that made my eyes go all squinty and my scalp go all itchy and my brain ache from all the cognitive dissonance. That was the point at which I could no longer grant the benefit of my doubt to Dylan. My spidey senses were saying Dylan was and is straight-up, consciously lying; she was not brainwashed, she was not the victim of false memory implantation and she was not molested by Woody Allen. She is a dishonest and vindictive person who will say anything to get what she wants especially if what she wants is to hurt people. Apparently, in Dylan’s twisted mind, expressing disbelief is more cruel and more evil than molestation. Does Dylan have panic attacks and nausea at the mere mention of Moses’ name, too? Does she get in a fetal position and cut herself when ‘Then Ten Commandments‘ come on TV every year? Now Moses has become the perpetrator of the “lowest form of evil” imaginable, so move over Woody Allen, John Wayne Gacy, Adolph Hitler, Elizabeth Bathory, et. al.

Is it really possible that I am the only person who a) picked up on this and b) is really fucking bothered by it?

For the next post, my plan to tie up some of the loose ends, address some other inconsistencies and address Dylan’s last statement in my next and last post on this issue.

I also want to provide you with a list of articles/blogs that I found interesting and inspiring.

    Agree. And the whole thing of my brother is dead to me? Dylan seems to be obsessed with The Godfather or something. Like Farrow wasn’t a mother but a mafia don. Moses better look out for Dylan putting a horse head in his bed.

  2. Heather Milam says:

    Well considered article.

  3. Dean Lewis says:

    Agree absolutely. You’re not the only one who picked up on it. That first letter by Dylan — where we as readers were given action items — not to watch Woody Allen movies anymore and no one should work with him either — struck me as presumptious and arrogant. Andrea Peyser too — reporter for the NY Post and not a fan of Woody Allen saw it too. The more I dug on this story, the more a mountain of evidence formed on Woody Allen’s side, and against Mia Farrow. We’ve formed such evidence on a pinterest account http://www.pinterest.com/paperbacks/mia-farrow-psycho/

    So when do we get Part 3? I wanna read Part 3!

    Thanks for this look at her manipulative open letter. I think the mere fact that Dylan is more concerned with Woody’s 2013 movie “Blue Jasmine” winning awards instead of suing him gives away the game – the allegations aren’t true and are just to smear his name. Mia Farrow is actually behind this letter and wanted “Blue Jasmine” to lose at the Oscars because its main character is based on Mia herself and in a very unflattering way. That she never complained about the previous 19 films Woody made after their relationship ended, but unleashes Ronan and Dylan to attack this 20th film shows that everything Woody says about her being vindictive is true. (Just watch “Blue Jasmine” while thinking that the main character is based on Mia, and all these renewed attacks against Woody via Maureen Orth and others that only started after the movie’s theatrical release become clear.)

    I’m late to the party here but I was doing an online search for Mia Farrow
    ‘s psychological status and this link came up. I am deeply disturbed by the continuing public demands from Dylan Farrow to believe her story and, what is most offensive to me, display my belief and support in her story by boycotting the work of Woody Allen. I do not believe Dylan’s story of what occurred that day, either but why should my opinion matter to her? Getting over her self described trauma over this alleged event has apparently been predicated on the public first believing her story and secondly, destroying the life and body of work of Woody Allen. Despite the validity of the Me, Too movement, this is a different issue. I also happen to believe in the separation of art from the artist. I can enjoy Kevin Spacey’s work and still think he is a sexual predator.

    Now that the allegations are back again like a zombie lie that just won’t die, I was already familar with the allegations when Dylan Farrow released her 2014 open letter and this part really stood out for me: “I remember staring at that toy train, focusing on it as it traveled in its circle around the attic. To this day, I find it difficult to look at toy trains.”

    When I read that in 2014, I remember thinking that even though she claims her story has always been the same, the “toy train” bit was a new embellishment to her story that to me rang as false. And I found out much later that I was right about it. Moses Farrow has confirmed that there never was a toy train set up in the crawlspace / attic…

    Moses Farrow said this: “I assure you, there was no electric train set in that attic. There was nothing practical about that space as a place for kids to play, even if we wanted to. It was an unfinished attic with exposed fiberglass insulation. It smelled of mothballs, and there were mouse traps and poison pellets left all around. My mother used it for storage where she kept several trunks full of hand-me-down clothes, that sort of thing. The idea that the space could possibly accommodate a functioning electric train set, circling around the attic, makes no sense at all. One of my brothers did have an elaborate model train set, but it was set up in the boys’ room, a converted garage on the first floor. Maybe that was the train set my sister thinks she remembers.” ( https://ronanfarrowletter.wordpress.com )

    Take away the toy train, a crucial centerpiece of her story, and Dylan Farrow’s accusation completely falls apart. That Dylan seems to be bashing up old memories and things she dreamed up into a cooked-up false narrative seems most likely. And that Dylan is a virtual clone of “Manipulative Mia” seems also to be true – like mother, like daughter.

    Again, I absolutely commend you on not mincing words about Dylan and Pharaoh who is obviously a huge liar.

  9. Pierre Tremblay says:

    Sorry, you can correct that. You know I meant to say Dylan Farrow.
