“…fran will (probably) never read this…”

Fran Lebowitz has a brilliant mind…she loves to read…in fact, she got kicked out of school for reading ‘other’ books, while she was supposed to be reading her text books…

But that’s just one of the many facets of her life that make her the fascinating person that she is today…

And, in a wonderful new documentary entitled “Public Speaking”, you get a whole lotta Fran from the inside out (and I can only say ‘bring it on’, cause a lot of Fran is never too much…)

Directed by Martin Scorcese, this documentary is basically a one-on-one interview, with a few clips from live appearances tossed into the mix, and it is as engaging as the subject matter herself…

So why will she probably never read this column?…

Well, she reads alright, and yes, she does read newspapers, which may give her an edge to catch this…

However, if it’s posted on the computer, she won’t, because, she doesn’t own one…she doesn’t have a cell phone, or a blackberry, or anything like that, and, like Woody Allen stated in a recent interview, neither of them know what a ‘Twitter’ is and only know ‘Facebook’ because of the movie…(brilliant minds do think alike…)

She also, of course, feels that New York should have stayed true to itself for New Yorkers, instead of having been turned into the tourist pond it has now become (we are of one mind here…)

So, if you feel you’re ever of a mind to stretch your little grey cells for a little while, turn off your ‘Facebook’, shut down your ‘Twitter’, and try this documentary instead…

…ya’ just might like it for a change…
