"About Powers Boothe being the best Marlowe, gee whiz. If some of you think Mitchum was too slow, Boothe looks to me like he's got a permanent
"Duh" balloon over his head as he drags himself from scene to scene..."

I was the one who initially mentioned Boothe and in the same post I said that Mitchum at 35 would have been the ultimate Marlowe (or something like that). They both appeal to me for the same reason: they're bemused at the world and the slowness is a cool world-weariness.
