Critic Reviews of "The Long Goodbye"New YorkerApril 18, 2016
Raymond Chandler's sentimental foolishness is the taking-off place for Robert Altman's heady, whirling sideshow of a movie, set in the early-seventies L.A. of the stoned sensibility.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
It tries to be all genre and no story, and it almost works.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
[Altman] attempts the impossible and pulls it off.ColeSmithey.comDecember 08, 2016
Robert Altman made a bold statement in his casting of Elliott Gould as a Jewish version of Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe character in this modestly budgeted film.Arkansas Democrat-GazetteJanuary 04, 2015
... one of those movies that always flits through my mind when someone asks me to name my favorite movies of all time. I usually don't mention it, but it's always there, on the periphery. It's at least one of my two or three favorite Altmans.The DissolveDecember 15, 2014
The Long Goodbye as a whole peels back the surfaces of private-eye stories, paying special attention to their macho bluster and abused women.LarsenOnFilmDecember 09, 2014
A playful de-romanticizing of the detective genre...CinePassionAugust 12, 2013
Robert Altman orchestrates a jangly genre autopsy, mischievous and brutalNot Coming to a Theater Near YouOctober 14, 2011
A reminder that meaning, if it is to be found at all, is not always revealed through a linear assessment of hints and clues, but simply stumbled upon.Laramie Movie ScopeFebruary 04, 2010
The look, the unconventional cast and the unconventional story make this a unique film, one of Altman's best.San Francisco ExaminerJanuary 11, 2009
Robert Altman's labyrinthine take on the Raymond Chandler classic is noir unburdened by a straight narrative - it's a triumph of atmosphere and attitude, a swiftly unfolding whodunit punctuated by subversive absurdities and shattering acts of violence.The Stranger (Seattle, WA)July 11, 2007
Everywhere you look, there's something delightfully weird going on ... Altman and company fashion a state of slouching, freeform Zen that no one else has ever really duplicated.
