PUBLIC SPEAKING, directed by Scorsese and produced by Graydon Carter, about legendary New York writer Fran Lebowitz will preeem on Monday.
Directed in the style of Scorsese‚Äôs early documentaries ‚ÄúItalian American‚Äù and ‚ÄúAmerican Boy,‚Äù PUBLIC SPEAKING showcases Lebowitz‚Äôs worldview and experiences. Spotlighting her trademark humor, the film weaves together extemporaneous monologues with archival footage.
Scorsese is one of those who can easily transition in and out of filmmaking, teaching film and making non-fiction films quite well. Is there anything he can’t do? Set your DVRs. If I had my way, Shutter Island would also be heavy in this year’s Oscar race.
