One of the first Cinematical posts I ever wrote was about Whit Stillman – specifically, I was wondering what the hell ever happened to the guy who directed Metropolitan, Barcelona and The Last Days of Disco – three of my favorite indie films of the 90s. Well, it's time to cut from our non-stop Sundance coverage to bring you this breaking bulletin: the director is alive and well and, according to Anthony Kaufman, living in Paris and preparing to direct his first film in seven years. What's the holdup? "For me, time is the biggest luxury.” Apparently. In the Filmmaker Magazine interview, Stillman also discusses his first film, Metropolitan, at length, in advance of its Criterion DVD debut next month.
