The films on this week’s list cover the more difficult sides of fame-trying to find it (Sweet Smell of Success), trying to keep it (All About Eve), trying to deal with the pressure it causes (Love and Mercy). It’s not easy being famous, or at least, that’s what we want to believe. Maybe that’s why we keep watching films with this theme.
