Nature, Grace, and The Last Days of Disco

Peter Augustine Lawler reviewed The Last Days of Disco (1998), directed by Whit Stillman.
"Their higher education allows them to go beyond common opinion to notice that Disney’s Lady and the Tramp is not really about dogs, because the dogs all 'represent human types.' In their amusingly erudite, sentimental, and shamelessly self-serving discussion of this cartoon, they cannot see that the types they discover are merely their simple-minded caricatures of themselves."
