This film moves to tears more and more each time I watch it. It hits a part of me that films rarely hit. I swear, I'm not a big crier. This honestly might be my favorite film of all time.
One of the best films I have ever seen. Like, if you were to take all the things I like about movies and put them into one, The Apartment would be what you get. Wow. Can't believe it took me 21 years to see this.

I wasn't expecting to like this as much as I did. It's just really well done all the way through. The cinematography is gorgeous. The score is great and hypnotic.
Of course, your liking of this film really depends on your ability to enjoy the over-the-top nature of some of the content. I have never had a problem with that.
I honestly think this is better than The Outsiders. Highly recommend.
