Sunset Boulevard ★★★★★

"The poor dope. He always wanted a pool".
"All right Mr. Demille, I'm ready for my close-up".

And Billy Wilder did it again.

I started watching this movie with a notebook in hand trying to take notes as a good critic (wannabe), but i couldn't write anything because i was so concentrated in the movie i didn't want to miss anything. I forgot about the notebook.

Gloria Swanson was exquisite. Her facial expressions were superb. She really depicted the mental state she was with those crazy eyes.

I don't know why Casablanca and Chinatown came into my mind while watching Sunset Boulevard but i'll say, to me,the latter is much better.

Five stars no doubt
