Altman´s The Long Goodbye


Elliot Gould plays the famous detective Marlowe.

Is this a good flick? I´m on Netflix, and a bit hardpressed for something entertaining.

Any recommendations en lieu of proceeding with this movie, if warranted, would be greatly appreciated.

TIA

If you want '70s revisionism of the detective genre. It has some nice bits.

If you like Altman I guess you should see it once

Well in, and it looks like I´m in the mood for this.

Whatever anyone can recommend on Netflix, I wasn´t debating between The Long Goodbye and others. It was the only one I saw that interested me somewhat.



Thanks all!

I love Chandler, and I think Altman just nails it. Gould is fantastic.
