Interviews: Stillman, Allen, Sorkin


The reclusive Whit Stillman on the free release of Metropolitan on, how to find that rare Last Days of Disco DVD on the cheap (Criterion edition someday?), Dancing Mood – an upcoming project set in 1960s Jamaica, an adaptation of Christopher Buckley’s Little Green Men, and living and working in Paris. Whit, come back soon (to theaters). (IFC)

Woody Allen on Vicky Cristina Barcelona, romantic chemistry, his roster of leading ladies, making do and shouldering the blame for casting and script deficiencies, how his films are often mistaken for autobiography, nutshelling his filmmaking process – start to finish, and never looking back. (A.V. Club) Related: Meetin’ WA (26 minutes) – a Hannah and Her Sisters era Allen, as seen by Jean-Luc Godard. (Spout)

Aaron Sorkin on Sports Night, the failure that was Studio 60, how Studio 60 was (as many have pointed out) his misdirected lash-out on the industry, Hillary, Obama’s potential for a “goose-bump experience” speech, the writers strike, taking shots from Tina Fey, and taking meetings with HBO. (GQ)
