"Watched 29.7 Digibox Melko viihdyttävä 50-luvun leffa, jossa on hyvä sekä huolella loppuun mietitty tarina. Kaikki huipentuu loppujen lopuksi portaikkokohtaukseen. Näyttelijät sen sijaan ovat aikakautensa pastisseja, eli melko mitäänsanomattomia mutta eivät todellakaan huonoja. Gloria Swanson vetää roolinsa aika usein liian koristellun tuntuiseksi. Auringonlaskun kadun klassikkoarvo on helppo ymmärtää, mutta eri asia toisaalta on onko se välttämättä todella hyvä. Ehkä on, eh"

"23.07. Digibox, 1st viewing Very good film. Stellar performances, a great catalogue of characters, nice plot and wonderful cinematography. It was fun spotting elements that were borrowed in Mulholland Dr. (a young eager woman named Betty for example). Still I thought that the film would've been more exciting if the death of Holden's character hadn't been shown u"

"Excellent! It was nothing that I was expecting. Gloria Swanson is just... creepy and talented! The movie was in a way so dark and fascinating. "

"Home - New Billy Wilder is fast becoming one of my all time favourite directors. Just fantastic, amazing script with fantastic performances. Even knowing the twists it's kind of enthralling. The 'I'm ready for my close-up moment' is monumentally tragic when seen in context. It's one of those innocous little vox-pops which gets repeated all the time, but in its natural habitat it's just astounding. I also like how Billy Wilder seems to specialise in a particular brand of protagonist. His main"

A great classic

“Since I kept hearing about this movie for so many years, I really wondered if it was really as good as everyone said. Eventually, I finally saw the damned thing and it definitely lived up to its reputation. Indeed, the directing by Billy Wilder was pretty impressive but Gloria Swanson was the one who really stole the show with her powerhouse performance. It was quite amazing that even though some scenes in this movie were rather over the top, some other parts were actually really well nuanced and subtle. Personally, I have not always been a huge fan of Billy Wilder’s work, especially his comedies like ‘Sabrina’, ‘Some Like It Hot’ or ‘The Apartment’, but here, he delivered a really dark tale and it was just spellbinding to behold. You can say whatever you want about Hollywoo” read more

10 most impressive female performances! (10 movies items)

"Actress: Gloria Swanson Character: Norma Desmond Other notes: Swanson was nominated for Best Actress but did not win. She's also the originator of such classic cinema quotes like "All right Mr. DeMille, i'm ready for my closeup", "I'm big. It's the pictures that have gotten small" and my personal favourite: "We didn't need dialogues. We had faces"! "
