Sheila writes: One of the Criterion Collection's recent releases is Billy Wilder's 1951 film "Ace in the Hole", starring Kirk Douglas in one of his best performances. It was Wilder's follow-up to "Sunset Boulevard," and the two films, taken together, are a scathing indictment of certain aspects of American culture and American life. Spike Lee is a huge admirer of Wilder's films, "Ace in the Hole" in particular (which was originally called "The Big Carnival"), and in the special features for the Criterion release, Lee speaks about the film, and about meeting Wilder.
