About Sunset Boulevard
Billy Wilder's Sunset Boulevard is a dark view of Hollywood that has never been surpassed. It opens with a screenwriter floating face-down in a swimming pool, then takes us on an extended flashback (narrated by the dead man himself) that shows us how he got there. A stunning, relentless movie that that is as absorbing now as the day it was made.
