The last time Louis C.K. directed a feature film the year was 2001, and the movie was Pootie Tang. We’re still not sure how exactly that happened, but obviously C.K.’s career has changed dramatically since then. Even though he hasn’t directed a feature film in 16 years, he has directed over 60 episodes of award-winning television.
He’s learned a lot, and we’re sure it’s noticeable in his new film titled I Love You, Daddy. C.K. directed, co-wrote, and stars in this movie as a TV writer, whose spoiled teenage daughter begins spending time with a famed director who is known for dating underage girls.
The movie stars Chloe Grace Moretz, John Malkovich, Pamela Adlon, Charlie Day and Rose Byrne. It will open in New York and Los Angeles on November 17, before being released nationwide on December 1.
It premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last month, and it received mixed reviews from critics. Some called it a “masterful picture,” while others claim it was totally worthless.
Sounds like if you enjoy Louie, you’ll probably like this as well, which is great news for me because I’m a huge fan of the show.
