IN ATTENDANCE: PAUL SCHRADER, AMY IRVING, BARRY LEVINSON, J C CHANDOR, MORE
The picture above, of Jake Paltrow, Brian De Palma, Martin Scorsese, and Noah Baumbach at Thursday night's DGA Theater screening of De Palma, was taken by Andy Kropa for Associated Press. It was previously mentioned that Scorsese "roasted" De Palma during his introduction for the screening. Today, The Huffington Post's Regina Weinreich reports that "Scorsese introduced the film speaking about their salad years as film students at NYU, coming of age in the era with Spielberg, Coppola, and others. Jake Paltrow and Noah Baumbach, from the podium at the DGA Theater, just let the film speak for itself, for an audience that included a high concentration of directors: Barry Levinson, J C Chandor, Paul Schrader, and more. Actors paid homage too: Amy Irving, Greta Gerwig, Carol Kane, Ellen Burstyn, Rupert Friend and Aimee Mullins, Jonah Hill, Fisher Stevens, and Broadway actors Alex Brightman and Lena Hall, who is about to start her two-week tenure at the Café Carlyle this Tuesday." In the last paragraph of the article, Weinreich writes, "The ensuing celebration at the Russian Tea Room was a microcosm of film world moving and shaking: Gay Talese urged Paul Schrader, Taxi Driver screenwriter, to write a memoir about his boyhood leading to his first ever film watched at age 19."
Jason Mann, who was the chosen rookie director of last year's season of HBO's Project Greenlight, also attended the DGA screening of De Palma.
