“Sunset Boulevard is the portrait of a forgotten silent star, living in exile in her grotesque mansion, screening her old films, dreaming of a comeback. But it’s also a love story, and the love keeps it from becoming simply a waxworks or a freak show…[It] remains the best drama ever made about the movies because it sees through the illusions, even if Norma doesn’t.” —Roger Ebert, rogerebert.com
You could go to Film Forum and pay $12 to see a classic movie. Or, You can see Sunset Boulevard this SUNDAY, for FREE, at Mid-Manhattan Library, as part of our Mystery Summer series. It’s an amazing line up of film noir, ending with the B-movie Narrow Margin on August 29.
