Sunset Boulevard

Wow.

What an amazing film noir this is.

Stark, taut and perfectly paced.

William Holden is absolutely mesmerising in it. I am not sure why, I tried a few other films he was in, but none of them really grabbed me.

This is practically the first shot in the film so it is not giving anything away.


Made in 1950.
