whit stillman is alive... and living in paris

For those of you who have never seen the movies Metropolitan, Barcelona, or Last Days of Disco, you should. They are three of the best movies ever. And by "best movies ever" I mean "my favorite movies ever." Particularly Metropolitan, which the Criterion Collection released on DVD (for the first time) last week. Hoozah. Well, it turns out that Stillman, who hasn't been heard from since Last Days of Disco opened in 1998, has been living in Paris, writing a bit, and eating pâte feuilletée or something. Behold! a recent interview:
