A New New Movie: Inherent Vice

It’s the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that love is another of those words going around at the moment, like trip or groovy, that’s being way too overused—except this one usually leads to trouble.

An adaption of Thomas Pinchon's Inherent Vice (2009), directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, and starring Reese Witherspoon, Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, among others.

A cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover, and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists... Part surf noir, part psychedelic romp—all Thomas Pynchon.

When private eye Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a loony bin…well, easy for her to say (http://youtu.be/wZfs22E7JmI).
