Hugo

I missed this Scorsese film. Very different for him and very good.

Marlowe

James Garner version. Not bad.

I just gave a group a tour of LA architecture which of course stopped at Marlow's office building--the great Bradbury Building. I believe this the only Marlow film based on the often overlooked Chandler book, "The Little Sister." I think they do a very good job setting this in "modern day" Los Angeles. A good comparison, also with an updating to current times, is the excellent "The Long Goodbye" with Elliot Gould.
