Sunset Boulevard ★★★★

Wow, I'm really impressed with this movie. I think it's incredibly overrated, sure, but it's still fantastic, boasting some fantastic cinematography, better acting, and yet better writing. There's nothing that I can really say is wrong about this or bad in any way, but it just didn't wow me too significantly either. The best part of the movie, and I'm sure that most people on here would agree, is the meta commentary written all over this film about the corrupting influence of fame and young optimism and all of that stuff. They're all very interesting ideas that I'll be thinking of for a while. Overall though, I don't think that this film is nearly as deserving of recognition as everyone else seems to think it is. 

TL;DR - Norma is basically my mom on steroids
