An epic end to an amazing trilogy. One of the greatest trilogies of all time. It can compete with the likes of The Godather and Star Wars any day of the week. 9/10
72. Sunset Blvd. (1950)
Not Rated | 110 min | Drama, Film-Noir
A screenwriter is hired to rework a faded silent film star's script only to find himself developing a dangerous relationship.
While its timelessness is in question, the story of the run down silent film star is a classic tale. With strong performances all round this movie is a classic and deserves a 9, however it is not one of my favorites. 9/10
