Well... I guess I have a new favorite.
There isn't one aspect of this film that isn't marvelous. I don't think I have ever seen a performance that I loved so much as I loved Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond, she owns it, every second she appeared I felt completely engaged and delighted by it. Everyone else does their job magnificently too, but her portrayal just keeps resonating in me, it's the kind that will be hard to forget. This film made me eager to get to know more about Billy Wilder's work because what he did here is truly something. I guess my mission now is to bug every single person I know till I have made them all watch this beautiful masterpiece.
