Dir. in person!

“Famously and successfully sued by Jackie Onassis, and slugged just as famously and successfully by Marlon Brando, denounced from the pulpits of punditry for decades, Galella has been a man easy to hate. But whether he can be blamed for sparking the current celeb-ysteria, he certainly created a body of work that is historically irreplaceable. [Director Leon] Gast, who won an Oscar® for his documentary When We Were Kings, gives us a man of personal complexity as well, a man who has photographed legends but still says ‘Catherine De Nerve,’ a tough guy who lives in a house a friend describes as right out of The Sopranos, except the Sopranos did not have a statue-studded pet bunny cemetery in the backyard.” — Mary McNamara, Los Angeles Times
