seemed to be too much filler
18 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sure there's a few tidbits that can be learned from watching this little puff piece on a great movie (such as how the shot of the swimming pool from below was pulled off), but for the most part it seems lacking in substance, the worst offender is without a doubt Glenn Close, as she seems to add nothing to the featurette, absolutely nothing. And for the life of me, I truly can't see why she was even in it, except maybe to pad out the running time. And yes I know she was in the Andrew Llyod Weber musical, but i absolutely LOATHE Weber. This 25-minute featurette can be found as an extra on the Special Edition DVD of "Sunset Blvd."

My Grade: C-
