Howard Hawks United States, 1946

Frankly, Mr. Shankly's rating of the film The Big Sleep

It's all about Bogie (being Bogie the entire film) and Bacall (sexy as hell). This is not the kind of chemistry we see all the time: they're unique and the looks, the gestures and, most of all, the dialogues are immaculately wonderful. The storytelling is way too cracked, but who cares? One of my favorite noir films, with no doubt.
