343) Metropolitan (1990) Dir: Whit Stillman Date Released: August 3, 1990 Date Seen: September 3, 2011 Rating: 4.25/5
Pretty fascinated by this film's ruminative sense of fatalism, not to mention Stillman's extraordinary knack for comic dialogue. I think I prefer Barcelona but that's mostly because I found the ending of Metropolitan to be...underwhelming? Can't really explain it well but I felt let down by an anticlimactic ending that I should have seen coming...but really didn't. Still, pretty great.
