Paul Thomas Anderson News
“She came along the alley and up the back steps the way she always used to. Doc hadn't seen her for over a year. Nobody had. Back then it was always sandals, bottom half of a flower–print bikini, faded Country Joe & the Fish T–shirt. Tonight she was all in flatland gear, hair a lot shorter than he remembered, looking just like she swore she'd never look.” Whether your first experience with “Inherent Vice” is Thomas Pynchon’s sprawling, hazy novel or Paul Thomas Anderson’s sprawling, hazy film, this opening passage should be familiar.

Inherent Vice is filled with flaws, but it's all the better for it. It's a wild, silly, confusing mind-trip with hypnotic acting (and music!) and oddly, a lot of heart. Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, the film is based on the 2009 novel by Thomas Pychon.Taking place in the 1970s, the story follows Joaquin Phoenix's Larry "Doc" Sportello, a drug-fueled Los Angeles detective who investigates the disappearance of his former girlfriend Shasta, played by the seductive Katherine Waterston. But Shasta's disappearance is only the beginning of Doc's problems.

Paul Thomas Anderson’s doped-up, stoner mystery noir “Inherent Vice” premiered this weekend at the New York Film Festival (our review). It lead to elation, confusion and more, because it’s a sprawling film with a crazy narrative, but it’s also beautiful, moving and has lots on its mind.
