Central Cinema Cinesthesia presents The Long Goodbye (1973)

Meeting Room 302
03/21/2019 - 6:30pm to 8:45pm

Robert Altman’s version of Raymond Chandler’s 1953
novel is an often hilarious deconstruction of the private
eye/film noir tradition.

“(The film) should not be anybody’s first film noir, nor their
first Altman movie. Most of its effect comes from the way it
pushes against the genre, and the way Altman undermines the
premise of all private eye movies, which is that the hero can
walk down mean streets, see clearly, and tell right from wrong”
(Roger Ebert).
