Sunset Boulevard ★★★★½

Of all the classic, iconic films I've long regretted not having seen yet, Sunset Boulevard probably stood out as the biggest miss.
So after finally sitting down to watch it I am happy to say I was not disappointed.
While that sounds like a weak compliment to such a great film, it's certainly not meant to be, I can only qualify that by saying I knew pretty much everything about the film before watching it, so it didn't have as great an impact on me as it might have had I seen this 20 years ago or better yet 30 years ago in high school film class.
Excellent, highly recommended (the sooner the better).
