My friend Joe Mantegna (not the actor) has made a documentary about Norman Mailer which I can't wait to see. Luckily I don't have to wait cos a copy of it is sitting on my DVD player as we speak. But here is the trailer to whet your appetites.
I have known Joe for ages. He first approached me after The Anniversary Party came out and asked me if I would like to direct a commercial. I said sure and so I did one and quickly found that commercials were not really my thing, though I did enjoy the one I did enormously. I will try and put it up tomorrow. Joe has been a great supporter: of my short-lived theater company The Art Partyand whenever I have a fundraiser for any cause he is always there. I did the voice-over for his last documentary P Town Diaries.
I am off to a wizard party in Brooklyn. I know, you couldn't make this shit up. I have a cloak and everything.
