  1. Yumi Kaioh's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    just too much happening and damn, they always get the girl

  2. Thomas Dods's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    I can't remember a thing about the machinations of the plot (I'm skeptical that anyone could actually explain it with confidence) but the atmosphere, the wonderful dialogue and a star turn from Bogart make it a classic.

  3. Shayan Bazri's rating of the film The Big Sleep

  4. LauraPalmer's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    there's nothing more iconic than Bogart and Bacall and that's the reason why I had to rewatch this masterpiece.

  5. ammar's rating of the film The Big Sleep

  6. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    Does it make a lot of sense? No. Is it entertaining? Yes. And that really is what’s important in the end, at least in this genre. Its not worried about trivial matters like story or plot, but more in the characters and the tone and mood of the piece. Bogart is phenomenal as Marlow, creating one of the definitive film noir anti-heroes.

  7. elif jazel's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    Lauren Bacall's performance is remarkable.

  8. Love Walked In's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    Very prose. It's just about the most beautiful tag team ever of the hippest creature from each sex floatin' round an intangible mystery showing what's cool every second. Educational.

  9. Andrew Miller's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    My favorite scene is the visit to the bookstore, crackling with delightful sexual tension.

  10. sadie's rating of the film The Big Sleep

  11. Tudor Rachieru's rating of the film The Big Sleep

  12. Felix Millan's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    I still have no idea what happened in this movie, but I loved it.

  13. Ricardo Andrade's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    Fascinating case of a film where the director´s golden touch enables one to overlook a major underlying flaw: a plot that´s confusing as fuck. This would have most certainly been a train wreck in the wrong hands, but Hawks manages to elegantly glue all the right pieces together.

  14. ap's rating of the film The Big Sleep

  15. SpacePirate's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    Confusing as hell story is saved by the snappy dialogue, the chemistry of the leads, and the tight direction. One of the ten best noirs.

  16. RoRoRoro's rating of the film The Big Sleep

  17. MS1915's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    I thought it was great. The dialogue is quick and fast-paced, keeps me on the edge of my seat, and Bogie is as cool as ever. A great film and a great addition to film noir.

  18. HSBilly's rating of the film The Big Sleep

  19. riraru's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    Die Ästhetik schön und gut, aber die Story sehr verworren und insgesamt wenig aufregend.

  20. Rodrigues Costa's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    The screenplay is just so fucking good.

  21. Razna_'s rating of the film The Big Sleep

    The eyes of Lauren Bacall.

  22. Matthew Horvath's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    I couldn't tell you what the hell's going on (from what I read, neither could some of the writers), but in a movie like this, it's more about the journey and the odd-ball characters you meet. There's some daring stuff for a '40's flick ... namely a not-too concealed hint at pornography. That Martha Vickers was quite the little thumb-sucker. Bogie is, of course, outstanding! Love those opening credits!!!

  23. TheCinemaAdventurist's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    I guess it's important to at least try to follow what is going with this convoluted movie, but in the long run, you just have to have fun with it and enjoy the overall film noir world, Bogart, Bacall, and the seedy and the sexy femme fatales that you meet along the way.

  24. Ian Fitzgerald's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    i took the big sleep while watching this movie
