disco5.jpgBetween 1990 and 1998, Whit Stillman made three films. They formed a loose trilogy, featuring chatty, monied young New Yorkers doing very little aside from chatting in monied environs. Chris Eigeman co-starred in all of them, in three different variations on the same loveable prick. The first film, Metropolitan, earned New Line it's first Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay. The third, The Last Days of Disco, was annexed by Stillman into a subtle meta-novel, The Last Days of Disco, With Cocktails at Petrossian Afterwards, in 2000.

And then ... nothing.

So what the hell happened?
