Sunset Boulevard is a little blog about the big and fascinating world of cinema. It’s a world where gun-slinging cowboys, spirited southern belles and Italian-American gangsters have often roamed, among many others. It’s a world where every second counts, and every twist and every turn leads somewhere spectacular.
It’s a world which I have fondly watched from a distance, recording my thoughts, and looking back on my favourites along the way. I started this blog as a way of collecting all my ideas together, but also, and perhaps more importantly, as a way of sharing these ideas with my fellow movie lovers.
Thanks for stopping by !

Hey Rachel, thanks so much for stopping by my blog, that too of a ‘Bollywood’ movie review! Apologies for the delayed response, though, I should have written sooner…but I just wanted to mention, I really like the way your blog is organized…maybe I’ll do mine up like that some day…I’m learning so much already..:)
No problem :) Great work on cogitofilm so far —I look forward to reading more from you!

Hi there Rachel, thanks for stopping by my blog – Geek Blogger UK. Keep up the good work on yours!
No problem Chris! Hope to hear more from you soon :)
Rachel, appreciate the follow from another cinephile. I am often moved by the films I select to see as there is some personal connection. But I hesitate to write more than I do because others might think that I’m not living in reality. Maybe ignoring that hesitation might be the healthy option. At any rate, look forward to reading more of your thoughts.
You’re very welcome. Your writings are beautiful, and I personally find it truly moving to see such an emotional attachment to various films and the stories they tell. Thank you for following.
Hi Rachel! Thanks for following Doorway Between Worlds. I really like the layout of your site. I wish you all the best. :)

Hey there! I’ve just nominated you for a Versatile Blogger Award, because I genuinely enjoy reading your posts.
I totally understand that these awards are not for everyone, (and you may already have it), but should you choose to accept it, then here’s the link to your nomination:
If not, no hard feelings, I still rate your blog!
Thank you —I appreciate this very much! Also, congratulations on your own nomination; you certainly deserve it :)
Thanks for following! Sunset Boulevard is definitely one of my top 10 favourite films!
You’re welcome :)
I’ve been following the blog for several weeks. I dig how you break down films you love. It helps me to frame my own thoughts on the same movies. I have a little pod cast called the lazy muses. We talk TV and film. I would love it if you would be a guest sometime. We do a weekly recap of Game of Thrones mixed with Best of Lists. Examples are Best Movie Giat Fights, Best Films of (Year), Best Ensemnle… Lurving the blog and I hope you will grace the lazy muses podcast with your insight sometime.
Thank you very much for your kind comment. I’ve just had a little listen to your podcast, and I must say it sounds like a lot of fun! I’d be very happy to drop by lazy muses some time in the future :) —Rachel
P.S. your daughter is utterly adorable!
Woo hoo. Very happy you will be joining us soon. We record via Skype. A USB mic records the best sound, but earbuds with a mic works too. Let me know the best day and time. If you have a topic you think would be cool, that’s great. Otherwise we will throw out some ideas and let you decide. Thank you.
Sure thing Jimmie. I’m a little bit busy at the moment, so I’ll let you know soon when I’ll be able to record. -Rachel
Wow! What a wonderful place for a movie junkie like me!
What a compliment :) I have only just recently discovered “Walking with the Alligators” and I must say you certainly have my great admiration and respect. Thank you for speaking out for those who are not able to.
Thanks for the follow Rachel, nice for the blog to have support even in its fledgling stages. Liking the look of yours.
You’re welcome! Looking forward to hearing more from you :)

Thank you very much Thom —what a lovely compliment!
Hi Rachel! Thanks for finding and following my blog…how did you find me?
No problem Jacob! I found you through the reader (your ‘Punintentional: The Obtuseness of My Life’ caught my eye) and have been hooked ever since! You have a great style, and I love the fact that you can write about pretty much anything and I’ll find it totally hilarious. I look forward to reading more!
Sweet! Hearing things like this make my day better; I love it when people laugh with me. If you have a topic you’d like my opinion on, leave it in a comment! Thanks for the smile, Rachel!
Hu Rachel, thank you following my blog. My Thursdays post will be about my life with an addict. If it were a movie, it surely would be a horror story. Blessings to you!
You’re very welcome Ms Vee. I’ll be sure to stop by and have a read – it sounds intriguing (not to mention terrifying)! Enjoy the rest of your day!
You as well!
Hi Rachel thanks for stopping by and liking my blog enough to follow . I shall certainly enjoy perusing your lovely blog. Be well and happy. :) xx

Thanks for showing interest in what I put out too. I sincerely hope you continue to find my works entertaining & pleasurable. Be safe.
You’re very welcome, and thank you for stopping by too.
Thanks for following my blog! I’m looking forward to reading your movie reviews. As a fiction writer, studying film is a great way to learn about storytelling. :-)
No problem Linda :) I’ve really enjoyed what I’ve read of yours so far, and I must say I have always found the crafting of mystery novels to be very impressive! At the end of the tale, it is so satisfying to find every little piece finally fall into place. I look forward to reading ‘Focused on Murder’ soon – it sounds like a great read!
“It’s a world where every second counts, and every twist and every turn leads somewhere spectacular.”
Thanks so much for following my blog; I absolutely love movies, and truly look forward to reading your posts and learning about movies I have as yet discovered.
You’re very welcome Angeline!
Thanks so much for the follow. Blessings your way
No problem Sue! Have a lovely day :)
I just like the way you put this: “a world where every second counts, and every twist and every turn leads somewhere spectacular”
Oh, that ineffable second, the breath of Mystery… which contains and permeates it all..everything spectacular seamlessly unfolds out of that encounter…
