The Last Days of Disco (1998)

I've heard reports of walk-outs on Whit Stillman's THE LAST DAYS 
OF DISCO, which I can understand.  Much like David Mamet's THE 
SPANISH PRISONER, the assured, stylized dialogue takes more than 
a little while to settle into.  (Try an hour.)  As does the pro-
cess of sorting out the relationships between the many main char-
acters.  (The preppy players include Chloe Sevigny, Kate Beckin-
sale, MacKenzie Astin, Matthew Keeslar, Robert Sean Leonard, and 
Stillman regular Chris Eigeman).  Superb soundtrack, tho.  I'm 
glad I stayed.  (Rated "R"/115 min.)

Grade: B
