Not surprisingly, the best movies about drinking reflect both sides of the equation, sometimes making us laugh, but also reminding us how alcohol can unleash a ravaging, devastating disease for those genetically pre-disposed — a disease that causes suffering not just for the victims, but in almost equal measure, their families and friends.
The Thin Man (1934): The quintessential martini movie, Powell and Loy’s chic sleuths have fun, solve a murder, and hold their liquor — but just barely. “Ammunition!”
The Bank Dick (1940): It’s always fun hanging out with Egbert Souse (accent grave over the “e”) at the immoral (and immortal) Black Pussycat Café.
