The Long Goodbye
Mystery • R • 1973 • 1 hr 52 min
You can see all of the influence that this film had on future noir films. It’s almost an anti noir but reinvigorates the genre
Enjoyed Gould as the smart aleck private eye. Some of the points didn’t matchup as neatly as desired. A little long winded.
Probably my favorite ending in a movie.
Great lead, great mystery, great gangsters, great cat, great topless women. I wouldn't change anything about this film.
Gould is like a Dude character, shopping for his cat food, ignoring the yoga class next door - brilliant neo-noir, Schwarzenegger cameo!
Really cool, and with the added elements of kind of surreal comedy it's a really fun watch.
Lots of style and gives off a unique feeling of sleaziness but still coolness. Weird central character to revolve the story around
A departure from Gould’s normal roles, he oozes cool. Awesome 70s noir.
There seems to be a love or hate relationship with this movie but I love it. The style over substance works simply because of Elliott Gould.
Not the biggest Altman fan. But dang this script is so entertaining. Such a great blend on drama and comedy. So many memorable lines
