Sunset Boulevard

(Billy Wilder, 1950). Ex silent movie queen Gloria Swanson gives the performance of her career as delusional ex silent movie queen Norma Desmond in Wilder's searing, bitter, and funny portrait of Hollywood, arguably the director's most impressive work. It's the portrait of an actress who lives in a dream world that turns into a nightmare and a young screenwriter half her age (William Holden) who is engulfed by her madness.
