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

Rating: 8/10 -- ...seriously, does anyone care how the chauffeur died? Full Review

It is a fast-moving drama, knee-deep in corpses, as tough as they come. It is rather'difficult to keep track of who is murdering whom and why, but there is not time to worry about such details with so many bullets flying around. Full Review

Rating: 6/10 -- To watch The Big Sleep is to witness a distinctly American film genre at the heights of its power, nonsensical plot notwithstanding. Full Review

The Big Sleep is as fresh and perverse as ever, and remains one of Hollywood's most entrancingly strange bedtime stories. 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

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

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.
