As Woody Allen’s “Bullets Over Broadway” opens, an earnest young playwright has finally found financing for his latest dreary exercise in social responsibility. It’s 1929, the world’s in tumult, and the playwright is proudly leftwing. But the guy putting up the money is a rich gangster who couldn’t care less which wing he is – just as long as the gangster’s girlfriend gets a big role in the play.
What, for example, is the responsibility of the artist to his art? We’ve heard of artists who would “kill for their art” – but would they, really? And should they? There’s the sneaky suspicion that some of this subplot in “Bullets Over Broadway” may refer obliquely to events in the last two years in Allen’s life. The heart has its reasons, he argued at a famous press conference, and in the movie that’s echoed with “an artist creates his own moral universe.” Only gradually do we realize that the only artist in “Bullets Over Broadway” who takes art really seriously is Cheech, the bodyguard.
