Gould’s Philip Marlowe grew on me during the course of the film.  His addled muttering at the beginning was definitely more Altman than Chandler.  But Gould was able to synthesize the two over the course of the movie to portray an updated hardboiled hero, yes, but one still rooted in Chandler’s novel.
