Sunset Boulevard ★★★★★

A reflection on Hollywood’s history, Billy Wilder’s noir is a gripping, suffocating picture on isolation as Swanson’s iconic Norma Desmond suppresses Holden’s Joe with her self-obsessed madness, cocooned within a story of love for the movies that inspires anyone working to be a part of this exclusive and high-end line of work.
