Some of today's movie news of note from around New York:
--The old, boring news: Martin Scorsese won the Directors Guild of America award for The Departed. The backstory: Anne Thompson's brilliant dispatch from Saturday morning's panel discussion among the 2006 nominees, including Scorsese's description of the cameo that ends the film: " 'It was a great rat,' he said. 'A real rat. He loved the job. He was eating croissants. He was having a great time. Another take? No problem.' "
--More from Woody Allen's appearance at last week's amFAR benefit: Of course the director still loves New York, but please -- do not confuse "muse" with "talented yielder of nubile flesh." There is a difference.
--City Lights Pictures -- they of the Rosario Dawson
rape-revenge aggrieved-college-student drama Descent and Manohla Dargis's favorite Sundance comedy, The Ten -- just bought North American distribution rights to the Alec Baldwin/Freddie Prinze Jr. '80s-mob vehicle Brooklyn Rules.
