The Apartment (1960)



Reviews and Comments

It's astonishing just how much of Billy Wilder's filmography is comprised of such popular and enduring classic films. The Apartment, a moody comedy-drama that ranges between funny and downright dreary, is one. It swept the Oscars in 1960, Best Picture and Best Director heading its winnings. The honor is well-deserved. This is an extraordinarily well-told story that has its audience right where it wants them every step of the way.
