  1. I think that Marlowe is a perfect example of the noir detective because he is cunning, and he uses it to his advantage in this clip. He is not going to have the wool pulled over his eyes; he recognizes the woman in his office as an imposter immediately and he plays along with her charade no longer than absolutely necessary. Charming with a bite, Marlowe uses words like mobsters would use guns and as an audience member I do not doubt that he will get whatever information he is in search of.

  3. I found it very surprising as well to see the murder played out so clearly so early in the film. It's rather ingenious, though, because it adds to the mystery rather than detracting from it. Instead of wondering who pulled the trigger, I am just desperate to find out why. The smooth camera work and serene setting are a great juxtaposition to such a jarring turn of events.
