Good movie. Shirl = rowr. Unlikely ending: IRL she wd stick as best fwends and break his feckin heart as she twirled thru endless rubbish boyfs (21st-century update: girlfs), before she suddenly lost her looks'n'figure WACK at 41.

You know I'm right.

This isn't a remake is it ethan? W.Heath Ledger and er Christina Wwwricci?

Loser, which I just only raved about on In Review is a virtual remake of The Apartment. Better, I think. See Loser.

The Apartment is a damn near perfect movie. Even the unlikely ending is unexpectedly touching. "That's the way it crumbles, cookie-wise..."

It's easy to say "They don't make 'em like that anymore," but they didn't often make 'em like that even back then.

They used to play it on public TV pretty frequently. Our whole family watched it a number of times when I was maybe 10, my sister 8. She said it was her favourite movie for a long time. Recently she was reminiscing and asked what it was about. When I told her, she acted shocked that she had been allowed to watch it. She claimed she'd never realized there was anything sex-related in the movie. ("I just thought it was an innocent comedy about Shirley MacLaine drinking martinis.")

I don't remember it super-well but I think I'd still like Annie Hall more.

Great film. Great dialogue, cute Lemon, of it's time, hardly dated, awesome. And Shirley MacLaine in a elevator operator uniform OMG.

is a good contender for my favourite film also.

that office shot, they used smaller desks and smaller *people* for the desks further away.

Love, love, love The Apartment. I mistakenly said Breakfast at Tiffany's was my earliest film--it's The Apartment, year-wise.
