  1. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    Noir strepitoso di Hawks con un Bogard in grande spolvero che interpreta un fantasmagorico Marlowe. Nonostante l'età tiene alla grande,ha un ritmo fantastico ed un intreccio coinvolgente(anche se con qualche personaggio secondario di troppo),che si dipana difficilmente ma riesce sempre ad intrigare,anche grazie ad una superba cornice elegante e fastosa.Cinema di livello altissimo,immortale.

  2. Pri Lima's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    What a complicated noir!So many people were killed that i forgot some of them and i gave up to try understand why people killed or were killed.Besides,i found most of people so mean that i thought they deserved all that suffering. Baccal singing And Her Tears Flowed Like Wine made the movie worth the view.

  3. Cole Caudle's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    Single handedly responsible for my life long fantasy of becoming a private detective.

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

    Bogart and Bacall. That is all.

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

    This is all about a superb Will Faulkner script, and Bogart and Bacall talking about horses. Bacall reminded me of Marlene Dietrich, with the exotic features and faux accent. Bogie himself is a force of nature as the sardonic, cynical Marlowe. The film is a great example of style and form trumping substance and content.

  6. Tigrão's rating of the film The Big Sleep

  7. orangey's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    fails as a good adaptation and a noir on its own

  8. Trevor's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    Ridiculous and ridiculously entertaining. This is some of the most fun to be had watching a film: witty, sexy, romantic, thrilling and an all around good time!!!

  10. El Biffo's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    Long live Philip Marlowe! I also give "The Long Goodbye" 5 stars.

  11. Ghostman's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    Masterpiece. Not a true blue film noir but it really doesn't matter. Everyone is at the top of their game here.

  12. JeanLouiseBlue's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    - You're cute. - I'm getting cuter every minute.

  13. 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.

  14. Fabio Di Felice's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    L'hardboiled per eccellenza. Bogart perfetto, la Bacall è la donna da amare. Vicenda intricatissima che paradossalmente aggiunge fascino a tutta l'opera. Imperdibile.

  15. Victoria L.'s rating of the film The Big Sleep

    Film-noir, Bogart and Bacall, Raymond Chandler. Can't get any better than that.

  16. Kyle Lewis's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    Bogart and Bacall. Up their with some of the great pairings like PB & J, cheese and crackers.

  17. francisca bacon's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    i do not know why, but hours after watching this, the feeling that i rest with is an immense pity for bogart and i cannot explain it.

  18. Michael Harbour's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    It's all about the dialog. And the delivery. The mystery is a mess that, if you try to think it through, probably doesn't hold together. But along the way there's the verbal sparring. The double entendres. And every pretty girl in sight throwing herself at a short middle-aged man with hard edged, wrinkled charisma. But really, its the dialog and the delivery. That's the polished gem of "The Big Sleep".

  19. Adam Z's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    I prefer the 1946 version. If you can put Chandler out of your mind a bit, this is a great film, unquestionably. That's not to deny that the film reproduces a lot of what is great about Chandler, including Marlowe's cleverness, just that it's not quite the book. This is a Bogart/Bacall vehicle and a thoroughly Hollywood movie, and as such it doesn't get at Chandler's melancholy.

  20. Cynthia Wolfe Nolin's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    Marlowe is MmMmarvelous, reel keen.

  21. Zachary T.'s rating of the film The Big Sleep

    Slick, sharply-scripted, self-assured noir of the genre's heyday -- convoluted as all hell (Hawkes and Chandler even admitted they were lost during production), but really, the plot is just an excuse for talented stars to glower in smoky rooms, barrel through the rain in expensive cars and spout singularly, giddily clever and cynical dialogue. Style over substance, sure, but man, what style.

  22. Golden Tarot's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    One of the best noir films of all time, Humphrey is oozing with attitude in this.

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

  24. Daniela's rating of the film The Big Sleep

    So boring it was hard to finish.
