Whatever Happened to Whit Stillman

The man behind three films of the 90s that I enjoyed very much, Metropolitan, Barcelona, and The Last Days of Disco seemingly disappeared from the face of the earth after that last film. Well, not exactly. He's now living in Paris, and Josh Horowitz of Better Than Fudge caught up with him recently.

Barcelona is probably my favorite of the three. It made literally fall on the floor laughing:
Q: "What about all the shootings in New York?"
A: "That doesn't make Americans more violent, we're just better shots."
[Ed. Note: Obviously a paraphrase]
NP: "Sister Jack (Piano Demo)" - Spoon
