Lily Parmenter's rating of the film The Big Sleep

Phew, that plot was messy, but really what you're watching is Bogie falling in love with Bacall! And how could he not! Such a beautiful part of film history. Not to mention that sexy bookshop lady. A damn near perfect noir. "You've forgotten one thing--me." "What's wrong with you?" "Nothing you can't fix."
