BOMB Magazine We are an arts quarterly and nonprofit, founded in 1981. Interviews, fiction, poetry, photography, readings, parties, concerts, contests & more.

In 1991, writer, producer, and director Whit Stillman sat down with editor-in-chief Betsy Sussler to discuss the making of his debut film METROPOLITAN, which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. Stillman would go on to write and direct five more feature films, including DAMSELS IN DISTRESS, which closed the 68th Venice International Film Festival.
