When The Big Sleep came out most people agreed that it was a great film. In fact, most people had nothing but positive feedback on the movie. In fact, The Big Sleep is such a great movie that in 1997, the film was deemed culturally significant by the Library of Congress. After that, The Big Sleep was selected to be preserved in the National Film Registry, so the movie could never be forgotten. So it seems like The Big Sleep got nothing but great reviews from people, however, there are some people that found the film not as grand. Some of the critics that watched the film, said that the story was very hard to follow, and at times, it seem like the movie did not even have a plot at all. However, the actors worked so great together that it really did not matter about the story. Now, I do not agree with that at all. In fact, I think that is very far from the truth. To have a great movie like The Big Sleep, you have to have both great actors and a great storyline. So that means that The Big Sleep had to have both of those things. Anyone that does not feel that way, or says that the movie is hard to follow, is saying that they do not understand the movie. So they figure, if they cannot understand what is going on, then it must not be a great movie. I think that is an unfair label to give to a movie.
The Big Sleep is a movie that I am sure you are going to enjoy for some time to come. If you have never seen the movie (or any version of the movie, for that matter), then you should see this one first. After you watch this film, you are more than likely going to want to read the book. The novel itself is just as compelling as the movie, and is even more in detailed. This is one of those movies that you just have to go see. If you are lucky enough, you may be able to find this movie to buy on DVD. This would be the perfect movie to add to anyone's DVD collection. You are going to love this movie, even if it is a little bit dated.
