The Apartment.

I watched The Apartment last night for the 1st time and it’s gone straight into my Top 10 Movies of all time. Light hearted at first it gets a tad darker as the film goes on. Yes, it’s a bit of a timepiece and notable for some minor racial stereotyping (the only black person in the movie is a shoe shiner – not good).

However one can clearly see it’s influence on The Office, Mad Men and even Robocop. Relevant commentary on corruption and power and some fantastic characters. Highly Recommended.
