a must-see

If I ever had any aspirations to be a filmmaker, Metropolitan would have kickstarted that goal. I saw this when it came out in 1990, and even at the tender age of 12, I knew it was something bigger than it seemed. You may wonder why I love a movie that is basically about rich Republican socialite teenagers, but it is just so well done and well written I can't help it. It is kind of like the same way I love Bret Easton Ellis novels- the central characters are always the bratty, rich, priveleged, but it simultaneously shows both ironic admiration and social depravity. It was followed up with The Last Days of Disco, which was also equally awesome.

Also, a movie for the conservative for all of us explains it better. It finally came out on DVD, but it has a hefty price tag.
