Movie: Sunset Boulevard


An interesting turn in noir films, this 1950 movie focuses on human pathos. The orchestral sountrack is there from its predecessors in the 40’s, and there’s a little snappy dialog, but there’s no glamourous, jaded, unattainable beauty or lone idealistic sojourner wrapped up in an incomprehensible plot. Instead we have a simple story of people struggling to accept a world that fails their expectations.
