The story then weaves levels of complexity introducing new characters seeming unrelated to anything. Some characters such as "Bigfoot" (Josh Brolin) appear as stereotypes on the surface, but underneath the exterior is someone totally unexpected. At times this makes fun of 60's stoner films but maintains Coen Brothers type of humor throughout. The characters are far from stock. There is humor in the notes Doc takes down in his book. There were plenty of WTF moments and "what the heck am I watching?" feelings. It is a film you must either be stoned or fully engaged to watch. I would recommend the latter the first time through.
Doc's journey takes him through a dead biker, Mental Asylum (Straight is Hip), Chinese smuggling, Dentist pedophile, massage parlor, and government conspiracy involving the FBI, DOJ and the Aryan Nation. Try to keep up.
This is an oddball cult film that won't appeal to everyone.
Guide F-bomb, sex, nudity (Katherine Waterston- FF)
in every scene, Josh Brolin you bad boy you, I just don’t know what else to say about this, other than take
me back to the fifty’s an sixty's, this is like a Mulholland Drive an Mulholland Falls esquire, lots of investigating
that leads nowhere soon enough for our protagonist character,
at two hours an twenty eight minutes I though it would be long an boring, but surprise surprise it fooled me to
the point of not being bored, flew by quicker than expected,
5.1 DTS-HD Master.
Paul Thomas Anderson Kudos To You........
For a Thomas Pynchon fan like myself, 'Inherent Vice' was shocking. The rich intellectual payoffs, cleverly cryptic humor and subtle satire was amazingly accessible. I didn't have to wade through super-dense prose that danced around the accretion disk and balanced precariously above the event horizon, or plotlines that traversed narrative wormholes to seemingly random points in time and space. It almost qualified as a... 'page-turner'. Like Norman Mailer's 'Tough Guys Don't Dance', Denis Johnson's 'Angels', 'Jesus Son' and 'Already Dead', and Cormac McCarthy's 'No Country For Old Men', Pynchon was testing his literary prowess against some tough hombres -- Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, and Jim Thompson, the unholy trinity of crime fiction and Noir-Lit; and in particular, L.A. Noir.
The adaptation of 'No Country for Old Men' was an anomaly, a rare celestial phenomenon. America's greatest living writer, Cormac McCarthy, provided a transcendent novel of Borderland-Noir that was seemingly made to be adapted by Joel and Ethan Coen, America's greatest living film-makers.
'Inherent Vice' is another rare example of perfect stellar and planetary alignment. Paul Thomas Anderson created a late millennial classic with 'Boogie Nights'; but his 2007 adaptation of the Upton Sinclair novel 'There Will be Blood', was a masterpiece...Read more ›
