The Apartment (1960) *****

The Apartment (1960) is one of Billy Wilder's very best films, in a career filled with many incredible films — the perfect blend of dry humor, mild cynicism and relatable drama. The themes (suicide, infidelity, men in positions of power) are still relevant and the tone is just right. Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine have never been better and Wilder handles the dark subject matter with the utmost respectful.
