Notably, even Louis C.K.'s now-shelved movie, "I Love You, Daddy," grapples with similar issues. In the film, the comic auteur plays a TV producer who is star-struck by a legendary director obviously inspired by Woody Allen -- played by John Malkovich -- until the "old perv," as he's described, begins a relationship with the producer's 17-year-old daughter.
