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

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

It is brilliantly directed and photographed. It moves with breathless speed. The acting is admirable. The dialogue (Raymond Chandler and William Faulkner are among those credited) is of an unusually high level of humour and crispness. 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

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