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

A classic

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.

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.

"Howard Hawks's classic noir sets the standard for private-detective flicks, with star turns by Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall."

"Too confusing, misleading, and with a weak payoff in the end. Definetly I am not very fond of Bogart's movies."

"26.2 Netflix new Kiharaisen juonen perässä ei oikein ollut motivaatiota edes yrittää pysyä, mutta kyllähän näitä Bogartin seikkailuja silti jotenkin mieluusti katselee."

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."
