“You’re a Mystic, Mr. November. All Irishmen are mystics!”

    Nice picture.

  2. Unrelated, but I watched Metropolitan earlier in the week. I enjoyed it. Never would have heard of it but for Mr. Lickona’s recommendation and quotes from the film.

    • Matthew Lickona says

      But did you enjoy it?

      • I did indeed. After the first viewing I listened to the director’s commentary. I particularly relished the reference to Brideshead and that quote “the worst generation since Protestant Revolution” but overall I was very happy with the dialogue.
        Do you have an opinion on Barcelona or the Last Days of Disco?

        • Matthew Lickona says

          So glad to hear it!

          Neither achieves the level of pure charm and delight that Metropolitan manages, I think. But both are possibly more intelligent, and even more mature. I would probably watch LDOD next; it’s closer in spirit, and such fun to see Stillman-level dialogue applied to the addled world of Studio 54.
