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

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.

"Katsottu 26.10.2012 DVD Raymond Chandlerin kovaksikeitetyn rikoskirjallisuuden klassikko Syvä uni sai ensimmäisen elokuvasovituksen kuusi vuotta ilmestymisen jälkeen. Kirjan monimutkainen rikosvyyhti, jatkuva valheen ja huijauksen ilmapiiri ja rikosten hämärät motiivit loivat haastetta elokuvasovituksen tekoon, jota kepeän Hollywood-viihteen muokkaama, maksava yleisö pystyisi seuraamaan putoamatta kärryiltä. Käsikirjoittajat Leigh Brackett, William Faulkner ja Jules Furthman päätti"

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. 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 Chandler, who angrily told them the answer was right there in the book. So they returned to their work. Chandler soon phoned to say that he looked at the book himself and couldn't figure out who killed the character, so he left it up to them to decide.). So, it is indeed a rather complicated story with some smart characters and some really juicy dialogs. Another enjoyable aspect is that, during the dura” read more
