Sunset Boulevard is in my top 3 favourite films.
Whenever I listen to Owen talk about his time in un-Holy-Wood, I think of this film.
He is the opening scene. Dead in the water being watched from above.
I’ve been a fan of Swanson for half of my life. She lived the nightmare/dream.
And I love to call HIM (the director) Cecil B Demented.
Gloria was secure enough in herself to be portrayed on film as a washed-up, deranged, psychotic, stupid, desperate for love, suicidal old woman.
Watch the film. It’s very prescient.
- having or showing knowledge of events before they take place.
