Film Review

What more can you say about one of the best films, best scripts and best male lead performances ever? The great Billy Wilder co-writes (along with I.A.L. Diamond, whose contribution should not be forgotten) and directs with precision, without a false note, in a style he perfected, this gem of a satire on the corporate world, sex and human values. Lemmon is simply amazing, ideally cast for the role, with one of the greatest physical comedy performances of all time. The change from satirical comedy – which is hilarious, comedywise – to drama is still striking. This, along with its pervasive view on sex, makes this 50's looking film more of a 60's film and a prime example of the changing of the times. There are as many funny one-liners and sight gags as you will find in any comedy ("We don't want this to leak out", "How many times? Three", "How's your knee?" "Stay with it, buddy boy"), and the photography – which amazingly captu…

This is not an exaggerated or over-the-top screwball comedy but more one that amuses with its cute story and characters. This all is also where the movie is getting its charm from. This movie is some good old fashioned entertainment, that is maintaining to watch throughout. It has a simple concept but likable story, that also works out due to its characters and actors portraying them.Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine were a great screen-couple. They were cute together, more than anything else. Next to that, they are obviously two more than capable actors, who help to carry the movie and its story along. Their characters are both also well written ones and not some typical perfect Hollywood type of characters. They feel more real and very natural. It helps to make the movie a warm one, with a charming feel and atmosphere to it.The movie is mostly being amusing for its first half. After that the movie starts to become more serious and somewhat more dramatic. It's a bit of a shame, s…

Apartment, The (1960) **** (out of 4)A good-hearted and lonely man (Jack Lemmon) lowers himself to the level of some of his supervisors when he allows them to bring their mistresses back to his apartment. He finally works his way up the corporate ladder when the big man (Fred MacMurray) asks for the key to the apartment so he can use it for a lady (Shirley MacLaine) who he just happens to like as well. THE APARTMENT picked up five Oscar wins including Best Picture and Billy Wilder picked up awards for his direction and screenplay (with I.A.L Diamond) and over the years it's reputation has grown as today it's considered one of the greatest pictures ever made. I personally don't hold the film up that high but there's still no question that this is a perfect little gem that manages to have a few good laughs mixed in with all the human drama. I was always surprised to hear some people call this a comedy because the subject matter is certainly a lot darker. Yes, Wilder&…
