Sunset Boulevard ★★★★½

I feel played

How did Billy Wilder do it, I was audibly gasping when the score started to pick up.

This plot is very similar to 'A Streetcar Named Desire' but a different style, this felt more grand and spectacular, while 'A Streetcar Named Desire' was compact and claustrophobic. Both are brilliant films and I think I like this just a little bit more. Interesting these two films came out in back to back years.

I LOVE THIS FILM, very close to a 5.
