I should have been able to guess the ending of The Long Goodbye, but the movie got me. It got, because it presented itself at first as a comedy, then it went into thriller mode, and then.... well I'm not sure where it went from there but it was very unconventional. Unconventional in a good way. I was laughing and then I was shocked and then i was confused. It's good when a movie evokes so many different feelings. Today's thriller/mystery films have a hard time doing that. They let the plot take over and use the character as pawns. Here the character drives the movie, drives it in a way that only Robert Altman could.

9/10

I wish someone would send me a $5,000 bill. James Madison, baby.

You really get sunk into the atmosphere of the film. Very good and a brilliant performance by Gould. I wonder what happened to the cat?

Some great witty dialogue and wonderful performances from Elliot Gould and Sterling Hayden, plus a twisty plot make this a good one. It did have some pacing issues though. Maybe it won't be as bad on rewatch though.
