Link of the day: Yet another Christmas movie list

The reason I think I enjoy this article from Katey Rich over at Cinema is because of her very last choice for the best movies you’ll ever experience during Christmas as an adult, and it’s Billy Wilder’s The Apartment:

The Apartment is all about extramarital affairs, drinking problems, suicide and unbearable urban loneliness, but it’s also one of Billy Wilder’s funniest, and best, movies. It’s Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine before they become “old coot” icons, Fred MacMurray at his most corporate evil, and great one-liners and running gags… comedy-wise, that is.

In other words, it’s a Christmas movie for those of us who enjoy a bit of cynicism with their heart-warming stories, and that’s perfectly okay with me.

    The Apartment is possibly my favorite movie of all time, but it seems a little out of place on that list. I think of it as a more of a New Year’s Eve movie than a Christmas movie.

    The Apartment is one of those movies that’s just perfect to me. It should be annoying that every DVD of a Jack Lemmon movie has the retrospective of his career featurette that’s almost the same on every DVD but I’ll be damned if I don’t watch every one and tear up. God I miss that man
