Oh, man, what a movie!
Perfect on every sense. Great cast, with terrific Bogart and Bacall. Complex and interesting plot and smart dialogues. Only “funny” thing, if we want to say something, is the “perception” of the women roles in the movie. They are strangely all sexy and attracted to and tempting Philip Marlow.
This continues the incredible run of films Bogie made with now-wife Lauren Bacall. Crackling script ran to perfection by Howard Hawks. Essential, especially for fans of detective thrillers or simply well-made movies.
Classic Film-Noir. Murder and mayhem; and a private dick that doesn’t quit.
Howard Hawks directs Raymond Chandler’s novel on the silver screen. None other than William Faulkner is primary screenplay writer. Bogart and Bacall star in this grand black and white thriller. Private eye Philip Marlowe(Bogart)is hired by a very wealthy family to protect a young woman from her own indiscretions and along the way there is murder, blackmail, car chases and gun play to deal with. Right smack in the middle of this complex case Marlowe finds time to fall in love with his client’s eldest daughter(Bacall). Murder galore does not phase our cool detective with the cigarette hanging from his thin lips.
Flawless acting from Bogart and Bacall. There is a very talented supporting cast that includes Regis Toomey, Martha Vickers, Elisha Cook Jr., Bob Steele and John Ridgely. Then there is the charming Dorothy Malone that sizzles in her short time on screen. Very witty dialogue and colorful characters make this a classic among classics.
The most complicated plot
Are you the mood to unwind with an easygoing classic film? Well if so, don’t watch The Big Sleep. This features one of the most intricate, complicated plots I’ve ever seen.
Bogey and Bacall are obviously a joy to watch and share a wonderful chemistry here (as in all their films together). Their performances are as strong as I’ve seen. The plot just tries to do far too much. I was so confused that I had to google the plot afterwards to help me understand what happened. It detracted from the film.
It also felt like a 3 hour long film. The Big Sleep was never a more fitting title for a film that despite a complex plot, often felt slow-moving. Yes, it has classic actors performing well. Yes, it has that classic black and white noir feel. Yes, it has memorable lines. But do all those things necessarily make a film enjoyable to watch? No.
Bit disappointed with this one, as it started so promising. After the viewer endures so much confusion throughout, the ending did nothing to satisfy and was rather weak.
Also features a really awkward beat down scene.
