Ashley’s review published on Letterboxd:
A masterpiece of film noir. No other film like it can even come close to how incredible this is. I don’t know how I’d never seen this film before. I know the story because I saw the musical of the film with Glenn Close a couple of years ago. Glenn Close was my first introduction to Norma Desmond and I’m completely okay with that, but Gloria Swanson is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. How she didn’t win best actress that year doesn’t make any sense.
