    Lumenick On Vacation

    By kyle | August 24, 2009

    My senior colleague Lou Lumenick has withdrawn to the great northwest for the week, so I’ve mounted a coup on his blog, where I’ve posted a couple of items. As I say over there, I’m pleased that Criterion is bringing out a deluxe DVD of “The Last Days of Disco” tomorrow. Also don’t miss “Duplicity” on DVD. I’m surprised that it’s available for an initial price of only $15.99. Not bad at all.

      My favorite Whit Stillman movie was “Metropolitan.” I see that he’s working on a movie based on Christopher Buckley’s “Little Green Men.”

      Agreed. Metropolitan is great. Last Days of Disco is the weakest of the three.
