"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
