Wonderworks Moving Pictures: Day 11
Sunset Blvd. to start off the week and either the kids had been snorting pixie sticks during the movie or the really enjoyed it/were disturbed by it. Lots of discussion, not always on topic, but still lots of discussion. There was one exception and he said immediately following the film that he didn’t like it. He couldn’t say why, just that he didn’t like it.
Spoilers alert if you haven’t seen the film. I mean, it’s only been 63 years since it was released, I can understand how you might want a spoiler alert.
It turns out he’d dozed off at a really crucial part in the film. He missed the New Year’s Eve party that Norma had thrown and then the second New Year’s Eve party at Artie’s place. He’d missed the suicide attempt and woke up to Norma and Joe kissing.
He had no idea why they were kissing. He’d managed to miss everything by missing only two scenes.
Anyway, if you haven’t seen it in a while or ever before, check out Billy Wilder’s Sunset Blvd.
