Sunset Boulevard is probably one of the most famous street names in Los Angeles. It is 1.5 mile long and the authors of this heartful documentary have put a visible effort into recreating its history throughout the 20th century.
The Sunset Strip is presented gradually through archival material of non-existent today clubs, joints and meeting points. We witness personae such as Keanu Reeves, Johnny Depp, Sharon Stone, Sophia Coppola, the Osbourne family. They are usually talked about in documentaries, whereas here they are the narrators sharing their side of the story experienced in this strip of land.
Quite successfully the viewers get delivered a crafty cut of interviews, of archival footage all summed up by a juicy animation.
A great journey enabling those not lucky enough to be located in LA, California, to appreciate and visit the famous places.
Probably one of the strongest points of this film is that no-one is put in the position of an omniscient narrator, but rather all the participants learn about the history of the boulevard from each other – in arranged conversations.
Good one! Thanks Raindance!
