Whit Stillman’s comment in Town & Country magazine’s summer edition:
Here’s a throwback Thursday article, written in 2015 by Charles Mudede for The Stranger on November 25, 2015, titled: The After-Party Lingers On. The article is Mudede’s take on Metropolitan and his experience watching it.
Charles Mudede is the co-writer of the Seattle set, Police Beat.
Though the film is deliberately vague about its time period, presumably for budgetary reasons, the title card tells us we’re in a Manhattan of “not so very long ago.” Metropolitan is not set during the late-1980s, when it was shot, but 20 years earlier, in the late-1960s.
