Sunset Blvd (1950)


All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up.

So basically: A small-time Hollywood writer, Joe Gillis, has some car trouble and stops at a large mansion to use the telephone. He meets Norma Desmond, a famous silent pictures star. When she discovers he is a Hollywood writer she employs him, albeit slightly against his will, to help her finish a script starring herself. She keeps him held up at her mansion and begins to fall madly in love with him as she waits to hear back from Paramount Studios.

Does Sheldon Cooper remind anyone else of Buster Keaton? Especially when he talks in this film? This also means, YOU GET TO SEE BUSTER KEATON TALK! How epic is that? Okay, done fangirling over Buster Keaton. The actual film is epic as well. Gloria Swanson is brilliant as Norma Desmond! Srs. This movie is worth it for her performance alone! And, if you’re a big movie buff – which I’m assuming you are – the subject matter is fascinating as well. The rest of the cast do not get overshowed by Swanson, either, which is awesome. And, the voice-over feels natural in this film.

Defs deserves to be on the list!

Ziggi seal of approval!
