THE APARTMENT
1960, Park Circus/MGM, 125 min, USA, Dir: Billy Wilder

Jack Lemmon ingratiates himself with his corporate colleagues by lending out his apartment for their extramarital affairs - but his promotion plans backfire when he falls head over heels for boss Fred MacMurray’s new gal pal, Shirley MacLaine. Oscar winner for Best Picture, Director and Screenplay (Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond). "By the time he made THE APARTMENT, Wilder had become a master at a kind of sardonic, satiric comedy that had sadness at its center … the summation of what Wilder had done to date, and the key transition in Lemmon's career. … The valuable element in Wilder is his adult sensibility; his characters can't take flight with formula plots, because they are weighted down with the trials and responsibilities of working for a living. In many movies, the characters hardly even seem to have jobs, but in THE APARTMENT they have to be reminded that they have anything else." – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times


TANGERINE
2015, Magnolia Pictures, 88 min, USA, Dir: Sean Baker

Famously shot on iPhones with prototype anamorphic lenses, this decidedly modern holiday tale bursts off the screen with energy and style, defying expectations at every turn. It's Christmas Eve in Tinseltown and Sin-Dee (newcomer Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) is back on the block. Upon hearing that her pimp boyfriend (James Ransone) hasn't been faithful during the 28 days she was locked up, the sex worker and her best friend, Alexandra (newcomer Mya Taylor), embark on a mission to get to the bottom of the scandalous rumor. Their rip-roaring odyssey leads them through various subcultures of Los Angeles, including an Armenian family dealing with their own repercussions of infidelity. “An indie tour de force. … TANGERINE jumps off the screen and wows you like nobody's business.” - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.
