Yeah, yeah, I'm working on

Yeah, yeah, I'm working on a post-preview screening post, but in the mean time, There's this crackup exchange from the courtroom where Woody Allen gave testimony in his lawsuit against his one-time producers and friends (as excerpted in the NY Times):

[Woody Allen] would have answered them at considerably greater length had Justice Gammerman not frequently, if good-naturedly, cut him off.

"Stop talking," the judge said.

"Stop talking?" Mr. Allen asked, somewhat incredulous.

"Yes," Judge Gammerman said. "I'm the director here."

A few minutes later, Ms. Weiss asked Mr. Allen whether he considered his longtime business manager, Stephen Tenenbaum, a close friend.

" `Yes' is the answer," Judge Gammerman said again.

"She could ask you the questions!" Mr. Allen said to the judge.

Since 2001 here at, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting that time.
