The Lost Weekend

10 years, 6 months ago at Feb 12 1:36
Billy Wilder was never afraid to bounce back and forth between making you laugh and making you cry. People tend to think of him as the jovial jokester behind Some Like It Hot, The Fortune Cookie and The Apartment. Fine movies all, but he also did black-as-midnight comedies (Sunset Boulevard) and tremendously powerful dramas like The Lost Weekend. Billy Wilder was a genius, and this was only his fo... read more

Don Birnam, long-time alcoholic, has been "on the wagon" for ten days and seems to be over the worst; but his craving has just become more insidious. Evading a country weekend planned by his brother Wick and girlfriend Helen, he begins a four-day bender. In flashbacks we see past events, all gone wrong because of the bottle. But this bout looks like being his last...one way or the other.

Elokuvat 2020 (280 movies items)

"Klassikot ovat joskus tällaista saatananmoista jankin jauhamista. Klassikkokaanonin oscar-voittanut messagefilm aiheesta alkoholismi on juuri sitä mitä siltä osaa odottaa. Ray Millandin epäonnistunut kirjailija tarttuu pulloon, miltei hukkuu, orkesteri soittaa mustin koskettimin ja naiset voivottelevat kunnes lopussa modernille katsojalle annetaan iso keskari vittumaisella onnellisella lopulla missä törpöttely viskataan historiaan kuin ongelmaa ei olisi ollutkaan ja kirjoittaminen sujuu "

100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"In Hollywood's early Golden Age, alcoholism was frequently depicted in a jokey fashion, with slurring bums being a comic staple and the recent repeal of prohibition leading to the ready availability of alcohol being seen as a cause for celebration. Billy Wilder's 'The Lost Weekend', then, was a very different kind of film from many that preceded it, taking a comparatively realistic look at the dark side of excessive alcohol consumption. Wilder was apparently inspired to adapt Charles R. Jackson'"

500 Essential Cult Movies (502 movies items)

" The Lost Weekend won four Oscars, all well deserved; this film is not an easy film to watch, probably because of its gritty, relentlessly truthful portrayal of alcoholism. This is harrowing and surprisingly modern filmmaking: brave, honest, and ugly. "
