I dropped by my place during my visit to Los Angeles and picked up a just-arrived Bluray of Billy Wilder‘s The Apartment, which I’d ordered via Canadian Amazon. Joseph LaShelle‘s black-and-white Scope images are radiant and shaded and really beautiful this time out. I felt as if I was truly seeing them for the first time. They’re clean and film-like and yet not, to my eyes, scrubbed or DNR’ed. The best part? You can see the eyeliner and face powder on everyone. Even on Jack Lemmon, Fred MacMurray and Ray Walston.
