BP’s Top 100 Movie Challenge #60: The Apartment, by Sarah Brinks

22 May

I decided to undertake a movie challenge in 2017. This seemed like a good way to see some classic movies that I have unfortunately never seen. The Battleship Pretension Top 100 list has a good number of films I hadn’t seen before so it is a good source for my challenge.

This was my second time watching The Apartment, and I was very happy to revisit it. The first time I watched it, I was a little surprised by how serious it was – for some reason I had it in my mind that it was more of a laugh-out-loud comedy than it actually is. This time around, I was able to appreciate it for the film it is not the film I expected it to be. I’m a big Billy Wilder fan and any time I get to watch one of his films, I am struck by how strong a storyteller he was as well as what impressive performances he is able to get out of his actors.

BP’s Top 100 Challenge #61: La Dolce Vita, by Sarah Brinks

19 May

I decided to undertake a movie challenge in 2017. This seemed like a good way to see some classic movies that I have unfortunately never seen. The Battleship Pretension Top 100 list has a good number of films I hadn’t seen before so it is a good source for my challenge.

The life styles of the rich and famous can seem exotic and glamour to the rest of us. La Dolce Vita certainly shows that side of life, but it also shows the darker, less appealing side. I found the lead character Marcello fascinating to watch as he balanced his job with his dream of becoming a real writer and his relationship with his hysterical fiancée and his many affairs.
