WHATEVER is one of the best first-time-director/writer films I've ever seen. It's up there with Whit Stillman's METROPOLITAN: intelligent script, beautifully photographed, tragicomic, sensitive and bull's-eye psychology, a cast of unknowns whose performances rise off the celluloid in their perfection. Susan Skoog, bless you: may you have a long, long career in an industry which seldom allows such living and breathing females and males onto its screens! I bought a videocassette copy and will enjoy it again and again. What slice-of-life realism! This stuff happens all the time, but we seldom see it so artistically processed and integrated. I like this film lots: can you tell?
