Sunset Boulevard

Part of me wants to write an essay about movies in the post-modern era and how today's movies rely heavily on references to classics such as these. It might even feature commentary on how if this movie had been made today, it would rely more so on showing and not telling. Instead, all I really have to say is the second Norma asked Joe what his sun sign was, I knew she was a Leo. That's one piece of information this movie didn't have to explicitly tell me.
