'I Love You, Daddy': Louis C.K.'s SOS

'I Love You, Daddy': Louis C.K.'s SOS

Just two months ago, at the Toronto International Film Festival, Louis C.K. got away with it. Again.

His new film, “I Love You, Daddy,” about a fabulously successful TV writer in a sweat over his pampered 17-year-old daughter (Chloe Grace Moretz) and her attraction to a legendary 68-year-old film director (John Malkovich), made its world premiere and got a very nice clutch of reviews. Manohla Dargis of The New York Times declared it a festival highlight — in part, she argued, because it so brazenly played into the rumors dogging C.K. for years, and because she saw in its confessional streak a wormy, intriguing acknowledgment of its maker’s “onanistic” fantasies.
