Classic quintessential mystery.

"What's the matter? Haven't you ever seen a gun before? What do you want me to do, count three like they do in the movies?"

Regarded as one of the essential Bogart/Bacall films, The Big Sleep is a stimulating plunge into an entertaining slice of detective fiction. Filmmakers these days just don't make movies like The Big Sleep anymore; the film is stylish and atmospheric, set in a w... read more

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.

My movie year 2016 (666 movies items)

"29.5. (DVD/Kirjasto) Bogart on äijistä äijin. Aamuyhdeltä alkaneen katseluajankohdan puitteissa oli lähellä, etten itsekin vajonnut syvään uneen. Voisi kanssa jossain välissä testata Chandleria, kun ukkoraiskan runoiluista parikin kappaletta vuosikausien ajan hyllyssäni villakoirafarmin asemaa ajanut on."

Movies the giraffe watched in 2016: March (34 movies items)

"First viewing - March 5th What can I say about this film that hasn't already been said? I was very impressed with the banter & the writing & just loved everything about it. Only thing missing was that perfect 10 feeling. I look forward to watching this one again."
