Billy Wilder's noir-comic classic about decay in Hollywood remains as pungent as ever. Joe Gillis (William Holden), a cynical young screenwriter, is attempting to ditch a pair of repo men when he pulls into the driveway of a seedy mansion belonging to Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson), a forgotten silent movie star whose brilliant acting career withered with the coming of talkies. The demented old movie queen lives in the past, assisted by her devoted butler, Max (Erich von Stroheim). Sunset Blvd. is one of those great movies —but it's no relic. Wow, does it ever hold up.
