Inherent Vice (2014) (7NR)
"There is nothing remotely like Inherent Vice... the comic noir-to-end-all-noirs. Lie back, and go with the flow."
Stephen Holden, The New York Times.
From Paul Thomas Anderson and Thomas Pynchon...
It's the tail end of the psychedelic '60s and paranoia is running the day from the desert to the sea of sunny Southern California.
With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, the FBI, LAPD detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover, a group of Beverly Hills dentists and a mysterious entity called The Golden Fang, everything's gone from "groovy" to "where you at, man?" in what seems like a matter of moments.
So when private eye Doc Sportello's (Joaquin Phoenix) ex-old lady Shasta Fay shows up at his door with a story about her current billionaire land-developer boyfriend and his wife and her boyfriend... well it all starts to get a little peculiar after that. Maybe you'll just want to see the movie. -- (C) Warner Bros, 2014, USA.
