The Apartment

The Apartment ★★★★½

This is definitely one where a rewatch revealed new depths. Wilder puts a shiny veneer over the gaping void in the center of the film. It adds enough sweetness to mask the character's own desperate misdirection. It's a world where the coffee is instant, the parties have grown too loud, your heart and home have been rented out, and your suicide will be set to a nice samba.
