Fedora ★★★★½

Famously (or infamously?) known as Billy Wilder’s spirtual sequel to SUNSET BOULEVARD, I was surprised with the wonderful quality that FEDORA has to offer. Surely way ahead of its times (and judging by the low average rating in this Letterboxd community, still is). 

A critique of post-golden age Hollywood and a sombre depiction of drugs addiction, while also a tragic love story and a James Bond motion picture (Count Sobryanski seems like a terrific Bond villain) all rolled into one, this is a classic that more people should know (and watch).
