    ★★★½

    Early Carpenter. It has his trademarks, such as: dynamite chemistry between characters and creeping cinematography/shot composition. It has some awkward blocking.

    Second five star of the weekend, after The Apartment. I didn't know a film about wine could teach me how to move on with life and to go wherever it takes me.

    The Apartment

    ★★★★★

    One of the best looking B&W films I've ever seen. The small comedic touches are just brilliant.
