Inherent Vice



Inherent-vice-us-poster

Directed by: Paul Thomas Anderson
Written by: Paul Thomas Anderson
Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Maya Rudolph, Owen Wilson, Josh Brolin, Jena Malone, Reese Witherspoon, Benicio Del Toro, Martin Short, Kevin O'Connor, Katherine Waterston
Studio: Warner Bros.
Genre: Crime, Drama
Official Site:
Plot: Larry "Doc" Sportello blazes up and investigates the disappearance of a former girlfriend, and half a dozen other things... I think.

Review:

I haven't read the book, but I'm going to in the hopes of making heads or tails of the Paul Thomas Anderson adaptation of Thomas Pynchon drug-fueled detective odyssey. Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed the film, it's just that... I don't have a clue about what the hell was going on most of the time.

Joaquin Phoenix and Josh Brolin were amazing, but Benicio Del Toro and Martin Short stole the movie in the brief time they were on-screen. Katherine Waterston gave the most hypnotizing of performances. She seemed like a ghost that floated in and out of scenes and haunted you when she wasn't there or was brought up by other characters - very film noir.

I love detective stories. Most of them are hard to follow and this was no exception. It was like if you used "The Big Sleep", "The Long Goodbye", "Harper", "Chinatown", "The Big Lebowski", and "Night Moves" as inspiration and put a unique, weird, trippy, confusing, hilariously funny spin on the classic detective story.

It definitely calls for repeat viewings. I don't know if that will help to make sense of the plot, but it will surely remind viewers just how bizarrely entertaining this flick was, is, and will always be, man. Far out!

"A Million Ways to Die in the West" was such a disappointment. I think it needed some Ted.

Well, Ted 2 is on the way soon. The Razzies people did not like A Million Ways to Die in the West either. They nominated the film in multiple categories.

I was disappointed too. I liked it okay, but once was enough and Ted was much better.

I recently watched William Friedkin's Sorcerer for the very first time and it is a masterpiece! For years I've read about this mysterious movie that was seen by few, but championed by film-lovers and Friedkin fans. The more research I did on it the more I knew I had to see it. It was one of the best films I have ever seen. It is a relentless type of filmmaking that has been lost since then. It's the type of film that sticks with you and reminds you that movies were made to tell stories that grabbed your attention, captivated you, and then when the credits rolled, you said, "Wow!" That is what Sorcerer is - it's a "Wow!" movie. I know, you may think I'm overselling it, but trust me, see Sorcerer and you'll better for it.

A friend of mine whose opinion in film is real similar to mine, as well as I respect. Has been chatting this movie up to me for the past week since he saw it... I am planning to watch it this week. His take is exactly the same as yours... Can't wait to watch this flick.
