"Some of those scenes seem to be less about character and story and more about Chandler's inability to fit in with modern society. And that's not necessarily a criticism."
. . . Later, I went back to it as an Altman film and decided it was good as that, even if it had little to do with Chandler. However, over the years I've come to see that their outlooks were not really that far apart. Both are fascinated by outsiders who do not fit, or no longer fit, in their worlds and how they deal with it.
  I think Chandler and Altman were alike in using Marlowe to explore how screwed up Californians are.
