After the early critical success Stateside for Paul Thomas Anderson‘s Inherent Vice the film is less now only 5 weeks from it’s UK cinematic release and if your not excited already maybe these new clips may help raise the levels.
The first clip entitled ‘Maybe You Shouldn’t Be Driving Then’ Doc (Joaquin Phoenix) get’s pulled over by a road cop with some other friends (all looking high on something) who thinks they maybe all part of a cult. In the second clip ‘What’s The Beef Here Exactly?’ Lt. Christian ‘Bigfoot’ Bjornson (Josh Brolin) attempts to charge Doc with a murder but Sauncho Smilax (Benico Del Toro) informs Bjornson he has no case.
When private eye Doc Sportello’s (Joaquin Phoenix) 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.
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.
With 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.
“Inherent Vice,” is the seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first ever film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel.
Whilst we loved The Master it did split some of the critics and cinephiles some calling it ‘too arthouse’, however this one does look more grounded more accessible to mainstream fans. Just below the new clips check out the latest character posters for the film for Reese Witherspoon and Josh Brolin.
Inherent Vice has an all-star cast, starring Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, Jena Malone, Martin Short, Maya Rudolph, and Katherine Waterston. With The film is released in UK cinemas on 30th January.
