For all new Fran Lebowitz lovers, we want to remind you of the famous words she wrote in Metropolitan Life in 1978: ‘Very few people possess true artistic ability. It is therefore unseemly and unproductive to irritate the situation by making an effort. If you have a burning restless urge to write or paint, simply eat something sweet and the feeling will pass.’ THIS IS ALSO TRUE FOR FILMERS. We have the quote on our fridge to make sure we never irritate the situation and never hook up with people who doubt Lebowitz’ words and think this is not about them. Read her majestic book Metropolitan Life along with Social Studies.
