Do you speak or read Italian? Do you want to learn? Perhaps our movie can help. Click here to read an interview with me in an Italian blog (proof that I really will do ANYTHING to help promote this movie). Then watch the video of me saying the same stuff. What a crazy concept for language learning! Is there money in this? More than in making independent films?



Yesterday I did a panel at the DGA on the "future of independent cinema" with Austin Chick, Mary Harron and my old friend Gary Winick. I think I can say, with confidence, that collectively we thorougly failed to answer the burning question of what the future of independent cinema will be. But at least we all told a few good war stories. Gary was amusing and candid as always in recounting, among other things, what a big fat diva Frank Langella was while making "Starting Out In the Evening" (which Gary produced). And last nights screening of "City Island" played to a capacity audience who all seemed to dig the movie.

Tonight is the Heineken sponsored "wrap party" at which the Audience Award is announced. I will attend. And in deference to nobody and nothing whatsoever, here is a little more Groucho from "Animal Crackers"--the justly famous "seven-cent nickel" routine...
