'70s Noir: THE LONG GOODBYE (1973)

6:45 PM - 9:00 PM
Central Library
Theatre
Join us for three masterpieces of early-1970's American cinema that perfectly capture the paranoia, corruption, and cynicism of the era.

THE LONG GOODBYE

Robert Altman deconstructs the private-eye genre while somehow remaining faithful to the spirit of the original Raymond Chandler novel (aided by screenwriter Leigh Brackett, who helped adapt Howard Hawks’ THE BIG SLEEP). Elliott Gould is a smart-aleck, slightly inept Philip Marlowe, a detective seemingly more concerned about feeding a cat than solving a case. He gets drawn into a labyrinth of deceptions and double crosses by friend Terry Lennox (Jim Bouton), a beautiful rich woman (Nina Van Pallandt) with a drunken, genius writer of a husband (Sterling Hayden in a tour de force portrayal), a quietly menacing psychiatrist (Henry Gibson) and a sociopathic gangster (Mark Rydell). Altman rips aside the slick veneer of the Southern California good life, revealing the smog-drenched, corrupt underbelly like few other directors before or since.

Other films in this series:

November 12 - KLUTE (1971)

November 26 - NIGHT MOVES (1975)

Registration requested but not required.
