For all the untidiness of its plot, The Big Sleep is, however, an enjoyable melodrama, exciting most of the time and comic when it chooses to be. Full Review

Rating: 4/4 -- "I don't like your manners." "I don't like them myself. They're pretty bad... I grieve over them on long winter evenings." Full Review

The Big Sleep, though, is witty and sinister, and in an odd way is a realistic portrayal of big-city life with Arabian Nights overtones. Full Review

There has probably never been so much plot in a film -- but it doesn't seem to matter. It, all looks very exciting, and if you follow half of it you'll get through. Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- The plot is a bundle of confusions, but who cares? Few films have made cigarettes seem so glamorous. Or had such seductive repartee. Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- The Big Sleep is the best scripted, best directed, best acted, and least comprehensible film noir ever made. Full Review

The Big Sleep is wakeful fare for folks who don't care what is going on, or why, so long as the talk is hard and the action harder. Full Review

Description by

L.A. private eye Philip Marlowe (Humphrey Bogart) takes on a blackmail case... and follows a trail peopled with murderers, pornographers, nightclub rogues, the spoiled rich and more. Raymond Chandler's legendary gumshoe solves it in hard-boiled style.
