AFI’s Goal Update – Sunset BLVD

poster-sunset-boulevard_04

This is my second film noir movie. And I must say it was more interesting to me than Double Indemnity. The main female character was far more interesting because she was a bit mentally unstable. One of my favorite parts was her impersonation of Charlie Chaplin. I felt kinda bad for the main guy at some point. It seemed like he kind of settled in his prison, accepted his unhappy fate. I’m sure most of us have been in those kind of relationships before. There was no fast talking or the use of the word “dame” in this movie which was a plus. However, it stuck to the classic “show you the end and then recap with narration” formula. Netflix thought I’d give it 5 stars. They overshot it by one star, I’m giving it 4.
