|"Ultimately, despite the unusual circumstance of shooting in Spain and having access to Hollywood funding, Stillman's mode of production remained the same, as has the essential personality of his films. Visually, 'Barcelona' retains the simple, unobstrusive style of 'Metropolitan'. Stillman's directorial style is designed to give him the greatest amount of freedom in the editing room; it also accommodates his penchant for extended close-ups. Perhaps Stillman's knack for holding onto his artistic vision lies in his belief that the writing and editing stages are where his production really takes place. It is as a writer that Stillman creates his style as an auteur, and it is in the editing room that he refines that style."– from "Sketches of Spain" by Noam Christopher, Filmmaker, Summer 1994|
