‘If I should die,’ said I to myself, ‘I have left no immortal work behind me - nothing to make my friends proud of my memory - but I have lov’d the principle of beauty in all things, and if I had had time I would have made myself remember’d.’ - John Keats

“Like so many Americans, she was trying to construct a life that made sense from things she found in gift shops.” - Kurt Vonnegut

Altman’s Marlowe is a plausible outcast, a joke and a throwback to the real L.A. (it is a film full of actual locations and natural light), a man who should have a girl instead of a cat, and whose maleness is gently mocked by the naked ladies across the way (the little bitches turned into flower children).
