Good reviews of ‘Disco’ needed

On a (seemingly random) previous post, “zelda” points out that The Last Days of Disco on is currently suffering from several very poor, very brief, reviews. Look back a page or two under the ‘Reviews’ tab to see them in their dismal one- and two-star glory.

But what’s the point of having a site about a director if you can’t encourage fans to boost him up!? So head on over and write your own review of the film to encourage people to watch!

  1. Last days of Disco is the ugly stepchild of the Stillman Trilogy.

    i did not bother to finish the film after seeing the first 20 minutes.

    Disco is probably what drove stillman into retirement.

  2. You’ve got to sit down again and commit yourself to the film–the first time that I watched it, I loathed the characters…until the very final moments, when it all came together and made sense. Disco is definitely a case of the destination putting the trip into perspective. Now that I’ve experienced the story from beginning to end I love watching the film unfold.

  3. Regarding Barcelona: The character in Barcelona known as “the consul”; After watching the movie I found myself searching for who wrote the script because “the consul” character so resembled my own thinking I wondered if I had chanced upon Whit Stillman at some point. I enjoyed Barcelona immensley due to the fact that I’ve lived overseas for many years myself.

  5. ‘Disco’ is a wittier, worthier and funnier Woody Allen(esque) movie than anything Allen himself has managed in at least the last decade, with a ‘Lady and the Tramp’ debate that’s the intertextual equal of Tarantino.
