Antagony & Ecstasy

Oozes affection for its subjects, and that carries it through even the weaker character moments and the more jarring shifts of narrative and tone.

An exquisitely composed yet fiercely combative satire (set in the eighties) of European mores as seen through the eyes of two young exemplars of the American establishment.

This is fairly amusing stuff-brittle, fresh, and impudent - if you can stomach all the upscale arrogance.

The unsympathetic characters and their slight adventure story was never compelling.

Darker and more acidic than Stillman's previous outing, this comedy, about two Americans at the end of the Cold War, could be described as Metropolitan meets Where the Boys Are meets The Year of Living Dangerously.

I recommend Barcelona on the proviso that you see [Stillman's] other two films first.

A very funny cross-cultural film about some idiosyncratic people who talk about what's on their minds.

A remarkable find: The film doesn't stop at getting your attention, it rewards it.

Narratively, Barcelona gives itself nowhere to go.

Ted and Fred may finally leave you not caring about Stillman's protagonists -- not so much ugly Americans as mildly unpleasant Americans.

The script and acting is excellent, supplying the little-known actors with some truly interesting and some very classic dialogue.

Just clever enough to get by on its charm, but Stillman really needs to stop wallowing in his own cleverness and start telling stories.

This isn't for everyone, to be sure, but those who enjoy literate, witty movies over shoot-'em-up, blow-'em-up fare should find much to savor.

It appears at first to be about the casual lives of young men trying to launch their careers, but eventually ... it reveals darker depths and meanings.
