Days of Wine and Roses (1962) - Perhaps Hollywood’s best depiction of alcoholism, with great performances from Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick. It goes a bit far out there that it sometimes loses its effectiveness for me, particularly in the second act, but it’s very strong material. Especially that ending!
In what way? Should I watch it or should I absolutely not watch it?
I’m not sure. Do you like other films of the period like The Apartment? Lemmon was an alcoholic, playing an alcoholic, and the third act is pretty hard to swallow when you think back on the first. I leave it up to you to decide.
Here’s the trailer.
