Filmmaker Whit Stillman really likes 7-Eleven’s breakfast

Page Six by Bryan Hood for Page Six (January 9, 2019).

Here is a huge update…Whit Stillman loves 7-Eleven’s breakfast (January 9, 2019).

On Wednesday, the “Last Days of Disco” director took a break from tweeting about world politics and the films of Ernest Lubitsch to profess his admiration for the convenience store’s breakfast offerings – particularly its egg, cheese and bacon croissant sandwich and 100 percent Colombian medium roast coffee.

From the archives of the New York Times comes an article about the Yule Log from Thomas Vinciguerra.

Like Christmas itself, the Yule log means different things to different people. ”It’s sort of a symbol of loneliness,” said the director Whit Stillman, who depicted a solitary Yule log viewer in a melancholy scene in his 1990 movie ”Metropolitan.” ”It probably wasn’t a great Christmas for you if you were watching it.” But, Mr. Stillman added, ”it’s a great thing to have when you touch bottom socially. No matter how low you go, if you had a TV, you had the Yule log.”

En socialist, en filosofinörd, en cynisk dandy – de är alla delar av en så kallad “urban haute bourgeoisie”, och trots att de alla drivs av olika ideologier är de alla lika övertygade om att de besitter svaren på allt. Det är första jullovet från college, och de nyblivna vuxna möts på fester och middagar för att prata och prata. Whit Stillmans manus Oscarsnominerades och hans debutfilm Metropolitan gick omedelbart till historien både som kultklassiker och ett måste i amerikansk filmkanon.
