<<Also, Marlowe's character is flippant on the surface, but with deeper "issues" going on within. Keitel plays his parts with almost excruciating sincerity and earnestness; I can't see him delivering a performance as a flippant wise-ass.>>

Marlowe is not a flippant wise-ass. He just got written that way. Let's not make the son pay for the sins of his father.

I see a problem in putting a Chandlerian wisecracker on screen today. It's quite hard to do without making a retro movie.
