Murder, My Sweet ★★★½

Films I watched while in Vermont - 10

I love Phillip Marlowe here: he doesn't know what's going on, what the teams are, which side he's with -- he's just in it for the ride. And that blind curiosity combined with a flashy script makes for a very gripping detective mystery. Sure, it's not the best of the litter, but it doesn't have to be. Murder My Sweet is a wildly entertaining ride from start to finish. Even when the mystery is all said and done, you still have something to smile about. That is all.
