Here’s Allen’s wonderful words of advice – we leave you with Allen’s wonderful words of advice – (from the end of the Martin Scorsese Rolling Thunder movie):

“You, who saw it all, or who saw flashes and fragments, take from us some example, try and get yourselves together, clean up your act, find your community, pick up on some kind of redemption of your own consciousness, become mindful of your own friends, your own work, your own proper meditation, your own art, your own beauty, go out and make it for your own eternity.”
