“No, bulls would gum it. They’d flash their dusty standards at the wide-eyes and probably find some yegg to pin, probably even the right one. But they’d trample the real tracks and scare the real players back into their holes, and if we’re doing this I want the whole story.”
My problem with Chandler-beholden movies is that they’re all tell and no show…too much yapping. But when they’re done well, you get a film like Brick which is more fun to read than to watch. Or at least, it’s fun to read, then watch.
