Since it is such a classic, I was really eager to watch it. Out of the 4 movies involving Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, it is probably the best one they made together. It is a rather confusing story (as a matter of fact, while working on the script, writers William Faulkner and Leigh Brackett couldn't figure out from the novel who murdered a particular character. So they phoned Raymond Chandl... read more

Well I really enjoyed this film, but it's clearly dated.
It's also especially nice to see two Hollywood Golden Era Actors Humphrey Bogart & Lauren Bacall, it's a really good film. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in The Golden Hollywood.

" This movie's title is so accurate because I actually felt really sleepy and tired while watching it. And this isn't even me just taking a cheap jab at the film because I hate it, I was just extremely fatigued when I saw The Big Sleep, and this was exacerbated by the confusing plot and rather inconsistent storyline. Bogey and Bacall play upon their enchanting allure, and sparks literally fly between them every time they're on screen. Bogey plays Phillip Marlowe, Raymond Chandler's famed "
