Hilarious, brilliant, unforgettable!

"When you're in love with a married man you shouldn't wear mascara."

Writer/director Billy Wilder expertly amalgamates comedy and drama in the critically acclaimed film The Apartment; a screen gem that is still remembered among the greatest films of all time.

For a dated romantic comedy this film is still immensely impressive in terms of innovative ideas, classic sto... read more

A classic

I know it is huge classic but I wasn't really blown away. I mean, it was pretty good and I enjoyed it but I wasn't really laughing but merely smiling during the whole thing. Still, considering it is a good old classic, it is definitely worth a look.

The Apartment, is one of Billy Wilder's funniest, most uncompromisingly bleak comedies, his second collaboration with Jack Lemmon, who plays a variation on that recurrent Wilder character, the weak guy who becomes a pimp or a gigolo to advance his career... Alexander Trauner's sets are unforgettable and Shirley MacLaine is deeply moving as the exploited lift attendant Lemmon comes to care for. She... read more

Movies the giraffe watched in 2014: Jan. & Feb. (20 movies items)

"First viewing - Jan. 20th/21st For the past few years I've heard & seen a lot about how Great The Apartment is, so with my growing appreciation of Billy Wilder it was only a matter of time before I watched it. And this is one of those rare occasions where a film lives up to its hype. I can't think of a single issue I had with it, and at the end I was left with that magical feeling that only 10/10 films tend to give me. I look forward to adding this to my collection & revisiting it many more tim"

Movies I've Streamed On Netflix Instant Watch (86 movies items)

"Netflix Romancethon #3 This film won Best Picture of 1960 and will be the final Billy Wilder film I'll be watching on my Netflix Romancethon. I have to say this is a really good movie. It's well-shot, very funny, has great performances, and it is an overall interesting film. I can finally understand the context of the famous spaghetti scene and it portrays an interesting story about adultery and dog-eat-dog office politics. Jack Lemmon definitely does an interesting kind of performance from the"
