Sunset Boulevard ★★★★

“I am big! It’s the pictures that got small.” 

I know this film is good, I really do. And, I appreciate those concepts of an obsession with the past and a refusal to retire when you’re hot (Cars 3 and The Irishman anyone?)... BUT today was just not it for me. I wish I wasn’t so tired and actually in the mood to watch a film like this, but I’ll try to rewatch soon. Hopefully those bombshells will hit a little harder. Still, I’m happy this was my first noir and Billy Wilder flick!
