Leighton Trent’s review published on Letterboxd:
"So they were turning after all, those cameras. Life, which can be strangely merciful, had taken pity on Norma Desmond. The dream she had clung to so desperately had enfolded her."
Hollywood on Hollywood will always be the most fascinating sub-genre for any Hollywood film, much less with the noir backdrop/framing seen here.
Billy Wilder should be worshiped.
