Sunset Blvd.

Agreed. It just beats The Apartment or Some Like It Hot. He is one of my favourite directors.

Agreed. It just beats The Apartment or Some Like It Hot. He is one of my favourite directors.

I have a feeling Ace in the Hole could also be in contention once I manage to see it again when my DVR doesn't crap out an hour into the film.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.
