07.18.06Internet So I finally watched this... it's good but I think if it was widely available it would be just another movie in the body of Wilder's work. Instead, since it's pretty hard to come by (especially if you don't like supporting bootleggers), it's seen as this scathing, still-true-today expose on journalism that MUST be seen by everyone who thinks they're cool (at least that's what I thought it was before I saw it). Douglas is good, the wife is awesome... it is pretty damn cynical but no moreso than Double Indemnity or Sunset Blvd.... but you know, it's not made of gold.

Still, it IS a shame that you can't go pick this up... it's pretty good and worth seeing...
