"Where's Whit?"

Film Slightly old but no less interesting interview with Whit Stillman by Psychology Today. On Woody Allen:
"He made it a lot easier for us, in certain film terms, to gain acceptance--people are ready for comedies coming from New York where people talk. But it's true. The point of view is so different. The reality is that in our lives a lot of things really do happen through what we say to other people and how seriously they take what we say; talking really does create our stories and the progress of our lives. Erik Erikson would say that one of the definitions of young love or young romance is conversation. It's all about conversation, when people get involved with each other at a young age."
Which makes me wonder yet again, where's Whit when you need him?
