The long goodbye
Blu-ray - 2021
It is a gloriously inspired subversion of the film noir genre with the "sun-baked Sodom" of 1970s Hollywood as its backdrop. Private eye Philip Marlowe faces the most bizarre case of his life when a friend's apparent suicide turns into a double murder involving a sexy blonde, a disturbed gangster, and a suitcase full of drug money. But as Marlowe stumbles toward the truth, he soon finds himself lost in a maze of sex and deceit only to discover that in L.A., if love is dangerous ...... friendship is murder.
