I’m bringing my Netflix Queued series to Tumblr! Instead of making videos about the movies I watch on Netflix, I’m gonna do short write ups. So let’s talk about the 1960 film, The Apartment
I’ve been meaning to go back and watch older films, since there are many gems from those days and I must live up to my title of film buff. And The Apartment has been sitting in my queue for quite some time so I finally decided to watch it.
It is unbelievably charming. Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine are adorable humans. As soon as you see them interact with each other you’re just like ‘yep, they need to be together. like right now.’ The directing and acting are effortless. It’s quite amazing looking back at older films and seeing how they hold up today. This film is painfully relatable, especially for anyone who has experienced unrequited love.
It has already managed to creep its way up to my top 10 favorite movies. I related to it more than many films that have come out in the past few years. It’s a comedy that doesn’t lose it’s touch, even after so many years. And it came out in a time when films were starting to be more daring in their subject matter, and for the 60s it is pretty adult.
This is definitely one to put in your queue and actually watch
