Free Flick of the Day: The Last Days of Disco

11 November 2009 4:35 PM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Whit Stillman hasn't made a lot of films. In fact, there are only three: Metropolitan, Barcelona, and The Last Days of Disco. All filmed in the '90s, his trio of movies morphed from upper-class teen Manhattanites, to heading out into the international working world, and finally to a look into the end of disco. Unfortunately, the last was sadly overlooked because another big disco fest hit the big screen -- 54 -- which may have been terrible, but with the likes of Mike Myers and a big-name cast, it was the flick in the spotlight.

Nestled in the shadows was The Last Days of Disco, starring Chloe Sevigny and Kate Beckinsale as two young book editors who fill their nights with dance and banter while looking for romance. Each night, as they head to the club, they come across a myriad of faces, from the Stillman pro Chris Eigeman, to the likes of Mackenzie Astin, »

Cinematical Seven: Filling In for Whit Stillman, The Yuppie Conversation King

25 August 2009 8:02 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

It's not easy being a fan of Whit Stillman's. We fall for Metropolitan in 1990, get an international treat 4 years later with Barcelona, and then The Last Days of Disco another 4 years after that. Eleven years since, we're still waiting for a fourth -- for any of the many projects on Stillman's plate to come to actual fruition and reach our eager eyes. Granted, it could be worse. Three fun films and silence is probably better than filmmakers who continue to throw out work that doesn't begin to meet their early success, or directors who jump into an entirely different path and leave behind the beloved work that gave them their name.

All this said, there is a new treat today for Stillman fans -- Criterion's release of The Last Days of Disco.

It's perfect for a double-header with the previously released Metropolitan, but I wonder about other possibilities. What »

DVD Review: The Last Days of Disco (Criterion Collection)

25 August 2009 12:58 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I had no idea what to expect from The Last Days of Disco. My experience with Kate Beckinsale began with Pearl Harbor and only goes back as far as Brokedown Palace (a film I don't even remember her in). Chloe Sevigny I didn't really know until 2003's Shattered Glass and have hardly gotten to know her since, outside of her role in Zodiac. On top of all that I had not seen a Whit Stillman feature. So to say I was approaching this one cold is an understatement. Actually, it was as if I was seeing Beckinsale and Sevigny for the very first time as they don't even resemble the actresses they have become, especially Beckinsale. Taking place in the early 1980s, The Last Days of Disco centers on Charlotte (Beckinsale) and Alice (Sevigny), two recent Ivy League college grads working in book publishing and spending their evenings in Manhattan's Studio 54-esque night club. »

What I Watched, What You Watched: Installment #5

23 August 2009 12:47 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This week I caught up with one television show and ventured into Whit Stillman territory for the first time... Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998) Quick Thoughts: Recently I asked a group of critics prior to a film screening what they thought of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Everyone seemed to say they enjoyed it and one person said he thought it was funny. This was my second time watching this movie as I still have the HD DVD from Universal and wanted to give it another chance after not particularly taking to it the first time. When it comes down to it I have no real opinion one way or the other. The film is okay and I really want the Criterion edition for the three separate commentaries, but other than that it's simply a'ight. There is, however, one thing I did take away from it, which was »

Whit Stillman Fans: 'Last Days of Disco' Goes Criterion

28 July 2009 11:15 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

I've learned my lesson on not falling into excitement about Whit Stillman news. As much as we've been asking over the years for more Whitty fare, all news seems to fade into development nothingness. But this bit of news -- this is only a few steps away. Following in the steps of the wonderful Metropolitan (a film that scored New Line its first Oscar nod for Best Original Screenplay), The Last Days of Disco is going Criterion.

The release, which will hit shelves on August 25, 2009, is a director-approved special edition that has a whole bunch of goodies that are just about the best thing for a fan wanting more Stillman. There's a new digital transfer, but that's nothing compared to: An audio commentary with Stillman, Chloe Sevigny, and Chris Eigeman (score!), four deleted scenes also with commentary, an audio recording of the director reading a chapter from The Last Days of Disco, »
