    The Last Days of Disco 1998

    Watched 10 Aug, 2016

    It has been several years since I saw Whit Stillman's Metropolitan, generally his best-known work and one that I enjoyed immensely, and I gotta thank Dan for pushing me into seeing more of Stillman's work. After seeing these two, I definitely need to see Metropolitan again, since I've forgotten a lot of it.

    Film 2 for the Letterboxd Season Challenge. The other films I plan to watch for the challenge are here.

    Week 2: 1930s Musicals
    Challenge: Watch an unseen 1930s musical.

    We're totally in my wheelhouse doing 1930s musicals, so much so that I had to go much more obscure than the Fred/Ginger and Busby Berkeley films many other Challengers are doing (though if you haven't seen those, that's absolutely the way to go).
