Description: This is the second film (the first was done in 1946) based on Raymond Chandler's 1939 detective novel. Michael Winner, directing from his own screenplay, has shifted the locale of the story from Los Angeles to London. Otherwise the movie sticks close to the text. The Big Sleep opens with Philip Marlowe approaching by car the mansion of a prospective client whom he describes in a voice-over narration as being very rich. General Sternwood is a decrepit, retired military man who is troubled by a recent blackmail attempt. Marlowe agrees to take the case.

"12.7. Kaanonklassikon re-makessa Robert Mitchum inisee tiensä mysteerin ytimeen. Meininkiä on 70-lukulaistettu, mikä tekee uusioversiosta mukavan erilaisen tapauksen. Hullut naiset ovat aivan totaalista käppää - joskus jopa huonolla tavalla. Lontoon pienet kujat ovat miljöönä kiehtovia, ja niitä katseli oikein mielellään. Orionissa oli kiva käydä pitkästä aikaa, ja leffan jälkeen ajattelin pitäneeni siitä jopa melko paljon. Mitä enemmän elokuvaa miettii, sitä vähemmän si"

"4.7. (Teatteri/35 mm) Oli hieman yllätys, että Michael Winner on tehnyt oman tulkintansa Chandlerin Syvästä unesta. Lopputulos on aika poukkoileva ja omituinen: siinä missä toisinaan nainen hihittelee silmät selällään ties missä kamoissa ja joku äijä räiskii kunnon toimintaleffatyyliin uzilla ikkunasta, välissä tunnutaan tekevän huomattavasti vakavampiotteista elokuvaa ja Mitchumkin eläytyy rooliinsa ammattimaisesti. Onko tämä sitten kieli poskessa -ryminää vai kunnnianhim"
