Sunset Boulevard (1950) (Special Collector's Edition)

Joe Gillis (William Holden), bankrupt screenwriter, hides from car repossessors in the garage of a deserted-looking mansion which proves to be the grotesque home of Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson), retired silent screen star. Joe takes refuge there, with a nominal job of rewriting Norma's hopeless 'comeback' screenplay. Weeks pass; feeling more and more like a kept man, Joe grasps at reality in the form of a clandestine friendship with script reader Betty Schaefer, but it's too late... This movie won 3 Oscars, had another 13 wins an 13 nominations... So who can argue with that? It is a great, great movie (10 stars out of 10)

I once took a big chunk out of a 'gingerbread man' christmas tree ornament that was made out of cork. Had I had these wooden sandwich makings as an alternative, I probably would have ruined my teeth, but it would have been a heck of a lot of fun. Particularly good for first borns looking to play target practice with younger siblings.

  • For those of you not familiar with Douglas Adams, shame on you. Go get this book and a towel. And don't see the movie.

  • A lot of storage room. Good stuff!

  • When you see this abstractly shaped key that opens the box with the people who ate too many shrooms you'll know the deed has been done.

I'm still sorting out what I think about the movie. The fact that I need to points that this is definitely a Lynch movie, in all fashions. I've heard comparisons between Mulholland and INLAND but feel that doing so will set the audiences expectations at the same level. INLAND EMPIRE is an entirely different experience. In retrospect, Mulholland looks like Disneyland to me with it's bright colors and sunshiney Naomi. INLAND is every color of gray you can imagine. It's a dark film, literally. Color seems very muted and reflects the heaviness of the content. Dialogue is slow but meaningfull. Laura Dern is brilliant. The music is incredible and I actually got the chills a few times from some scene/music combos. And I love the ending. I'm not going to lie, three hours is a long time but if you go and sit and let it wash over you you won't be disappointed. Be warned this film makes you work for it. Most likely after viewing you will walk away and say Huh?" much like after Mulholland. And much like Mulholland, after a repeat viewing things start to click into place. Enjoy!
