Gasper Noé Presents: Sunset Boulevard [PG]

Runtime: 110 mins

Distributor: Park Circus Films

To celebrate the release of Vortex, the latest from acclaimed director Gaspar Noé, Culture Shock presents a diverse selection of films personally curated by Noé himself, each relating to the narrative, formal and collaborative elements of Vortex. Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond, an aging silent film queen, and William Holden as the struggling writer who is held in thrall by her madness, created two of the screen's most memorable characters in Sunset Boulevard. Winner of three Academy Awards., director Billy Wilder's orchestration of the bizarre tale is a true cinematic classic. From the unforgettable opening sequence through the inevitable unfolding of tragic destiny, the film is the definitive statement on the dark and desperate side of Hollywood. Erich von Stroheim as Desmond's discoverer, ex-husband and butler, and Nancy Olson as the bright spot in unrelenting ominousness, are equally celebrated for their masterful performances.
