In FX's Louie and the digitally distributed Horace and Pete, stand-up comic Louis C.K. revealed himself to be one of the most inventive, malleable, and downright unpredictable filmmakers working at the moment.

The film, the comedian's first feature length since 2001's Pootie Tang, opens in theaters on November 17th.

The timing for Louis C.K.'s upcoming film I Love You, Daddy is either ideal or seriously unfortunate. Pamela Adlon, Charlie Day, Helen Hunt, and Edie Falco co-star, making this one very impressive ensemble of sometimes under-utilized talent. That film is none other than I Love You, Daddy.

De Bruyne's agent Patrick De Koster has said he intends to begin discussions with City over improved terms in the coming months. Kevin de Bruyne's agent plans to use Neymar's contract to negotiate the midfielder's position at Manchester City .

After the initial debut and reception, C.K. brushed off some of the controversy: "It's just a fucking movie", C.K. From the opening notes, it's clear C.K's character is drawing inspiration from filmmaker Woody Allen: the music, the creamy black and white photography, the aspect ratio and the signature thick-rimmed black glasses. If that instantly draws parallels to Woody Allen's Manhattan than perhaps that was always the intention. Louis C.K. spared no expense getting the film exactly the way he wanted including recording the score for I Love You, Daddy at Abbey Road studios. Reactions weren't especially ecstatic for the film, including my own which felt that it overstays its welcome.

I Love You, Daddy is out in cinemas in the USA on 17 November.
