Not that Ferrara is working overtime to dispel his press image. Last summer he substituted for Scorsese at a chic film preservation fund raiser. The story I heard was: Abel gets up to the mike, gives it a tap, says something like, ‘Okay, can everybody be quiet please? There’s something I’d like to say about film preservation.’ Tongues keep wagging, glasses keep clinking. ‘Please - can you be quiet for a minute? This is important.’ Same. ‘Can everybody just shut the fuck up for a minute?’ Guess who got thrown out by security guards.Kent Jones, The Man: Who Cares? (via andrewinfante)
