Whit Stillman’s Influences

Vulture’s Nate Jones writes about Whit Stillman’s influences.  Of course Jane Austen and J.D. Salinger are talked about.  He is also a big fan of Hitchcock and his film Strangers on a Train.

I don’t know why Strangers on a Train affects me so much, but there are elements that connected with me. You can see a bit of that in Barcelona, where the Chris Eigeman character feels that people are accusing him of doing something wrong. In Metropolitan, too, there’s that question: Is someone a bad person?
