"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,
