INHERENT VICE

(2014) dir Paul Thomas Anderson w/Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Katherine Waterston, Benicio del Toro, Owen Wilson, Hong Chau, Eric Roberts, Joanna Newsom [148 min; DCP]
The latest film from Paul Thomas Anderson is an enigmatic and hilarious adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s novel that draws influence from a longstanding tradition of “Sunshine Noir” – movies with the dark soul of film noir but inhabiting a sometimes-too-brightly-lit daytime world of comforting warmth. Joaquin Phoenix plays Doc, a permanently addled hippie private detective who predictably finds himself in over his head when he goes looking for an ex-girlfriend and her missing lover.

“INHERENT VICE hits home one of the key premises that puts the “neo” in neo-noir: The mid-century margins plumbed by Chandler are moved to the center. ” – Elliott Feedore, Brattle Film Notes
