The Apartment ★★★★★

This is quite possibly the best movie I could watch to help kickoff my social isolation for the foreseeable future. "The Apartment" is darkly funny, endlessly clever, whip smart, and terrifically performed. It's hard to keep your mind off of the state of the world with COVID-19 shutting everything down, and even the beginning with Baxter being sick in the office hits differently. But Billy Wilder is able to dance at the very edge of the Hays Code to provide some delightful escapism. God, Jack Lemmon was never fully appreciated in his day, was he?
