Michael’s review published on Letterboxd:
This movie recently turned 70 years old and I felt like it was the perfect time to revisit this movie. 70 years later and this movie is still a masterpiece in my opinion. Sunset Boulevard is a fun and creative movie that deals with Hollywood film production after the 1920s. The movie shows what happens to certain people when they're no longer needed. You get to feel the sadness and pain Norma (Gloria Swanson) has gone through after having no work for 20 years. I also love how the movie is a great time capsule of Hollywood during the end of the 1940s and early 1950s. It's always so cool to see many of the popular icons of that era playing themselves such as Hedda Hopper and Sidney Skolsky.
I don't have anything else to say about this movie because everyone else has talked about this movie to death already. If you haven't seen this movie yet, do it now. Rating: 9/10
