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. I don’t know anything about him as a person, but he was able to tackle many different genres and types of stories with sophistication and style.
