Paul Thomas Anderson’s new film, Inherent Vice, stars Joaquin Phoenix, Benicio Del Toro, Sean Penn, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, Josh Brolin, Martin Short, Jena Malone, Maya Rudolph, Katherine Waterston and Kevin J. O’Connor.
The film is an adaptation of the Thomas Pynchon novel of the same name.
It’s the tail end of the psychedelic Sixties in L.A. Private eye Doc Sportello hasn’t seen his ex-girlfriend in a while, when suddenly out of nowhere she shows up with a story about a plot to kidnap a billionaire land developer. It all spells trouble to Doc but before he knows it he is caught up in a bizarre tangle of motives and passions whose cast of characters includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, a tenor sax player working undercover, an ex-con with a swastika tattoo, and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang.
