Billy Wilder United States, 1950

Draughtsman Without Contract's rating of the film Sunset Blvd.

“I am big. It’s the pictures that got small”. A genuine timeless masterpiece: the final sequences are perhaps some the most finely gauged satire ever committed to film and all the more resonant for being so thoroughly imbued with pathos and melancholy. “They’ll love it in Pomona’ and in quite a few other places too.
