Sunset Boulevard ★★★★

AFI 100 Unspooled Watch Along
September Scavenger Hunt 2019

20. Watch a movie that's considered meta.

I thought this film was wonderfully shot and Gloria Swanson's performance is wonderful. It reminded me a lot of Citizen Kane, which is why this film might not stick with me. It was wonderful, but I felt like I had seen it before. I believe #16 is far too high on the AFI 100 for this film. I am not denying that it should be on the list just like I am not denying that this is a great film, but I don't understand why this film would break the top 25.

*I updated my icon for September. I will probably change it to something Halloween themed in October.
