Atom User Reviews for The Maltese Falcon 80th Anniversary presented by TCM
One of the best movies, and what a great experience to see it the way it was meant to be seen, on the big screen!
Bogart is masterful. Great dialogue and outstanding cast.
My all-time FAVORITE filmnoir, whodunit, and on the silver screen no less! Fell in love when about 9 y.o. (a long time ago) and have seen it on the TV screen many times, but never in a theatre,,,what a treat!
The start of the great Detective movies.
One of the greatest films of all time.
My husband and I were SO excited to be able to see The Maltese Falcon on the big screen. We have watched it many times on tv but this was an experience we were thankful to have! The movie is amazing and so well done!
A great movie and a “must see” for filmnoir fans!
Wonderful movie with awesome dialogue. Bogart's best imo.
Loved Humphrey Bogart's movies! He was a true woman's MAN!!!!
The movie is essentially a series of conversations punctuated by brief, violent interludes. It's all style. It isn't violence or chases, but the way the actors look, move, speak and embody their characters.
With Hammett's dialogue incorporated virtually verbatim into the screenplay, Bogart in top form, and Huston allowed total directorial freedom, watching this first of the films noir is an experience to be embraced.
