One of the few films that successfully makes the East Coast upper class sympathetic. Stillman is current cinema's one true wit.
| Original Score: 5/5

Metropolitan is not for everyone; but that is not a mark of shame or condemnation.
January 1, 2000
Not very much happens in Metropolitan, and yet everything that happens is felt deeply, because the characters in this movie are still too young to have perfected their defenses against life.

True appreciation for this movie may be restricted to those with firsthand experience in this kind of world, or a certain upper-haute stamina.

Like chamber music, Metropolitan is sprightly, intimate and all too self-aware.

Stillman films, with their acerbic humor, are perhaps best on the second and third viewing. With their rapid-fire approach and their subtle dialog, it is easy to miss many of the lines the first time around.

On a technical level, this is an amazingly slick film. Stillman knows how to, as they say, put every dollar on the screen. And on balance, he's certainly a filmmaker to watch for in the future.

This film's fine point is not so much the plot as its view of this young aristocracy and the often funny and always engrossing dialogue.
