Billy Wilder's THE APARTMENT is often called one of the best motion pictures ever produced, and with good cause! It's a brilliantly funny and emotional motion picture, with important things to say about living with moral compromise in a complex modern world. So why, oh why is it the perfect double feature with the legendarily gross and awful singing cockroach MTV comedy JOE'S APARTMENT...?

Film critics talk a lot about "cult movies," but what the heck is a cult movie? How do obscure and unpopular films find an audience, what are the classics of the genre (if you can call it that) and where can you find them, anyway? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold explain the phenomenon and recommend ten films that don't have a cult following, but might finally have by the time we're done with this week's CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED! And hey, we've also got reviews of the new releases HELLBOY, MISSING LINK, MASTER Z: THE IP MAN LEGACY and MARY MAGDALENE!
