The Apartment (1960)

It's a miracle of epic proportions - we both agree this is a perfect movie.

This week, David has Diana watch The Apartment, Billy Wilder's masterpiece and the 1960 Best Picture. This delightful, charming and dark romantic comedy beat PsychoSpartacus, and Inherit the Wind across the board. Jack Lemmon is a national treasure, Shirley MacLaine is delightfully melancholy and Billy Wilder has an uncanny ability to let a scene play out simply and perfectly. We have no complaints, and that's saying a lot - this is a MUST see.

NEXT WEEK: Rain Man (1988).
