Yeah, a lot of people do talk about it. I've seen some interesting and insightful essays on it w.r.t. it being a deconstruction of the noir/private eye genre(s); a digest of the social milieu of early-1970s LA told through a mystery; etc. I even recall seeing an interesting essay linking it and a number of other early 70s fare (e.g. The Conversation, The Parallax View, etc.) to a general sense of dread within the Left following things like the spate of assassinations that had plagued America during the preceding years, Richard Nixon's election, Watergate, and revelations about things like COINTELPRO. I'm not sure how accurate that last one is, but it was interesting.

If only I could find them...

Caveat - you have to like, and understand, British humor and actors. Otherwise, some of the jokes will get lost on you.

Also,

If you liked The Long Goodbye, you should definitely get your hands on Night Moves.

There were more than a few spots where subtitles would have come in handy - the sound mix wasn't always crystalline, and those accents...

Mostly a very funny film with an intriguing level of subtext.

Beginners - a little slow but overall cute movie. Plummer definitely deserved the oscar. Very good acting. MacGreggor is his usually boring self.

Not even close, and I like Lynch. The crafting of Almedovar's movies is phenomenal.

I refuse to watch a CGI movie. One thing that I am closed minded about in film. I am coming around to appreciate digital filming, but CGI, ugh.

I recently watched a couple Korean movies which turned out to blow my mind! Anyone else see "I Saw The Devil"? It's the best revenge type movie I've seen in a while!

Also, "The Good, the Bad, and the Weird" was pretty fantastic, same director I believe.
