    Does anyone watch movies because they want to laugh without analyzing every facet of the movie anymore?

    Wilder, 1960

    First and foremost, Mr. Lemmon is the reason this film succeeds on the level it does. While his character of C.C. Baxter doesn't offer a full expos of emotion in terms of broadened range, the nuance he invests is incredibly drawn and perfectly appropriate. Perhaps it is the quintessential role he was born to play. In fact, since my first helping of The Apartment I have always expressed Lemmon as actually being good ol' Buddy Boy, an interesting persona in and of itself. Probably too nice for New York City and a bit pathetic in his own right, Buddy fits the definition of a people pleaser as well as anyone, though he remains far more likable than such descriptors would lead one to believe.

    The titular location is, in fact, Baxter's apartment which he lends out to those in position to better his lifestyle; namely his bosses. The juxtaposition of Baxter in relation to those above him is a fair indicator of what makes him so lovable. There's an interesting dichotomy existing between their shenanigans and his floundering dealings with them that causes his more sociable surrounders to question their perspectives on young Buddy's life. He's seen by his neighbors as a playboy and the shortcomings of his superiors are projected onto him. Their infidelities become his. Lemmon handles said accusations amazingly and Wilder often allows his screen time to run on so he can stay and build upon his character. Hilarity ensues.

    On the topic of Wilder, his aesthetic scope, which is often under-talked about in comedies, transitions smoothly from the highly contrasted, well-framed images of Baxter's work place to the gentler, more personable scenes involving Lemmon and MacLaine. Their chemistry seems real, not in the sense that they click unconditionally but moreso because they're both decent people and not overly characterized. The way they give into whims of others, especially when placating to demands of a sexually suggestive nature (bold for a film of its time, particularly when vesting in holiday themes) makes them, at one point or another, endlessly humiliated. At one point, MacLaine describes herself as "the happy idiot", which is more or less a shared idea of self-perception between herself and Lemmon. We, as the viewer, become enamored in watching them crawl from their awkward social and romantic holes. The comedic and more touching sentiments are brilliantly orchestrated throughout.

    Bogart pwns all.

    Theres only one Bogart movie better than Maltese Falcon and these no way you are rating it so low.. so I'm looking forward to see what what other Bogart movie you are rating higher than Maltese Falcon.

    And how can you rate The Lady Vanishes so low?

    Either way good work on making this list man, i would have such a hard time trying to come up with a top 100. Looking forward to see what makes your top 25.

    Ha, yeah. What's sad is that my top films change a good amount so this list would already look completely different from the time I started it until now. That's not to say these still aren't all great films but things change. I'm slowly trying to teach myself how to objectively rate films that I've loved before my standards were so high, comparatively against those I've seen as of late. Once the summer ends I should have more time to do essays.
