    In the top three Altman films

    A movie that gets better with each viewing. I'm a fool for 'the private dick' so couple that with the genius of Altman and the talent of Elliott Gould (now and forever!!)and you get a kick-a** film!!

    Excellent Adapation

    Altman does a terrific job of adapting Chandler's into a modern piece. Farewell, My Lovely was a flop because it tried to relive the Glorious 40's. The Long Goodbye was a success because it paid its kudos to the writer, but grewup.

    I beg to differ

    If you like cute and quirky a la Altman, you'll like The Long Goodbye. What I found was less a detective story than a succession of distracting scenes and situations which upstage any revealing of the main character. He seems only to lurk around the edges of this movie and indeed, Marlowe is so displaced in the 70's that you don't care where he is. This is revisionism with a bullet.

    one of the best of the 70's, of all time even

    one of the best movies from one of the best directors ever, if you love the private eye genre, you might be a bit befuddled, but you're in for lots of treats, and if you're an Elliott Gould fan, you've got him here in all his glory, he's cool, he's witty and you could just eat him in one gulp!!
