Paul Thomas Anderson‘s Inherent Vice is turning out to be one hell ending to January for UK cinephiles and today the psychedelic is looking even more appealing now with these 4 new clips, can you dig it?!
As well as these brilliant clips we have 3 more vibrant character posters that are like windows into the stoner psychedelic world created by Thomas Pyncheon. The array of characters we’ll meet in Inherent Vice are from Nazi sympathizers, old school cops, mysterious figures to damn right insane. If the gossip we’re hearing about this film that the author Pyncheon is actually making an cameo will be extraordinary as he’s a known reclusive, well true believers it’s time for an Stan Lee moment and see if you can spot him!
What we can’t argue with is there all beautifully drawn and capture the essence of the decade the film is set in, 1970s.
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.
