|What They're Saying...||
"[Stillman is] one of the wittiest filmmakers of his generation, or any other. And now he is the subject of a book of essays, a few of which are high-minded enough to make a doctoral candidate blush. The contributors...have a great many shrewd and illuminating things to say about Stillman and his art; and if they sometimes lapse into overseriousness, it is the vice of a virtue, which is that they take him very seriously indeed. [Stillman] is the poet of their touching plight, and Doomed Bourgeois in Love pays due tribute to the singular subtlety with which he has given it voice."
"Like C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, and Dorothy Sayers, Whit Stillman advances an aesthetic vision that cannot help but appeal to a certain repressed yearning in all but the most Laodicean viewer."
