Sunset Boulevard is a classic, as you should know. It’s one of the staples of the noir genre, moving away from the more hard boiled noir, into something with a bit of commentary. It holds a mirror up to Hollywood in a way that few movies had at the time, and its themes are still relevant today.
This is one of Wil’s all time favorite movies. You might have guessed that as he’s prone to liking Crazy Bitches™. But this was husband/editor Will’s first time watching and he’s the opposite, so Wil was slightly worried. But alas, Will with two Ls liked it very much and was happy to have finally seen it. It’s a really solid flick, deserving of its “Classic” status.
