Sunset Boulevard ★★★★★

I'm not sure there's any performance where an actor uses their face and eyes as well as Swanson does here, maybe Falconetti in The Passion of Joan of Arc, which is some company to keep.

Glad to rewatch and bump it up to five stars. I've no idea why I didn't give it five initially; it's perfect - so well written, shot and acted, and it features the gold standard of endings, as if it wasn't good enough already.
