‘Inherent Vice': Paul Thomas Anderson on His Trip Through Thomas Pynchon’s L.A.

17 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“What are we talking about? I’m lost,” says Paul Thomas Anderson midway through a lunch interview, as he runs a hand quizzically through his unkempt brown hair. It’s a reminder that a conversation with Anderson can be akin to one of his own movies: a jam-packed jostle of characters, ideas, exuberant digressions and narrative curlicues that somehow align to form an inimitable whole. Still picking through his appetizer course, Anderson has already held forth on his love for Lena Dunham, “The Hunger Games,” his inability to read books that friends give him as gifts, and his habit of walking on the outer edges of his feet. But mostly, we are talking about “Inherent Vice,” Anderson’s seventh feature film — the first-ever authorized screen adaptation of a novel by National Book Award-winning author Thomas Pynchon.

The movie, bowing Dec. 12 in limited release, and opening wide Jan. 9, returns Anderson to »

The destruction in Man of Steel will play a major part in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

17 December 2014 3:21 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since it was announced last year, we’ve heard a lot of talk about one half of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but not so much on the other. Over the weekend our comments section blew up as people gave their thoughts on the colour of Batman’s new outfit, but there wasn’t so much talk about Superman when his costume was revealed.

Warning – potential spoilers…

So, just what will become of the Last Son of Krypton in this team-up movie? Well, according to Bad Ass Digest, the destruction caused by the fight between Superman and Zod in Man of Steel will play a major role in the plot for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. According to their sources who have read the script, Superman has become a very controversial figure, having intervened in America’s fight in the Middle East and has even been banned from Chinese airspace. »

New poster for Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice

14 December 2014 1:35 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Just days after the release of the final trailer [which you can watch here], a new poster has arrived online for Inherent Vice, director Paul Thomas Anderson’s adaptation of the Thomas Pynchon novel of the same name…

When private eye Doc Sportello’s 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 looney 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, »

First official look at Ben Affleck’s Batman v Superman Batsuit in colour

13 December 2014 3:25 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve seen a couple of shots of Ben Affleck in the Batsuit in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but not in colour… until now. ComicBook has discovered a colourised version of the first official photo of Affleck’s Dark Knight, which is taken directly from Zack Snyder’s Cruel & Unusual Films production company website…

So, pretty much as expected, but now that we know exactly what colour scheme they’ve gone with, how do you think it stacks up against the previous all-black versions we’ve seen on the big screen?

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25th, 2016 with Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) and Harry Lennix (General Swanwick) alongside Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, »

Inherent Vice Movie Review (2014 New York Film Festival)

Title: Inherent Vice Director: Paul Thomas Anderson Starring: Joaquin Phoenix, Katherine Waterston, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Jena Malone, Eric Roberts, Michael K. Williams, Serena Scott Thomas and Christopher Allen Nelson Not all creative and vibrant ideas or explorations into the possibilities of securing the happiest and most luxurious lifestyle possible are meant to last forever. That intriguingly relatable and important life lesson is enthrallingly presented in writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson’s new crime comedy-drama, ‘Inherent Vice.’ The movie, which had its world premiere this past October at the 52nd New York Film Festival, intimately exposes the fall of the bohemian lifestyle that Southern California thrived on during the 1960s.

Film Review: Inherent Vice

12 December 2014 7:35 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Inherent Vice is filled with flaws, but it's all the better for it. It's a wild, silly, confusing mind-trip with hypnotic acting (and music!) and oddly, a lot of heart. Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, the film is based on the 2009 novel by Thomas Pychon.

Taking place in the 1970s, the story follows Joaquin Phoenix's Larry "Doc" Sportello, a drug-fueled Los Angeles detective who investigates the disappearance of his former girlfriend Shasta, played by the seductive Katherine Waterston. But Shasta's disappearance is only the beginning of Doc's problems. Soon, all sorts of bizarre, albeit interesting characters start asking Doc to look into "this and that" for them: an ex-con named Tariq Khalil (Michael Kenneth Williams), now affiliated with the Warriors Against the Man Black Armed Militia, wants to find a former prison mate of his; Coy Harlingen (Owen Wilson), a sax player who faked his death and now wants »

Sound Off: Paul Thomas Anderson's 'Inherent Vice' - Your Thoughts?

12 December 2014 2:27 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Now that you've seen it, what did you think? "But if you're Doc, it may all start to get a little peculiar after that..." Now in theaters is the latest from acclaimed filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson, an adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's novel Inherent Vice, starring Joaquin Phoenix as Pi "Doc" Sportello. This stoner comedy/drama/mystery begins when Doc looks into the disappearance of an ex-girlfriend named Shasta, played by the effervescent Katherine Waterston. PTA's cast includes a bunch of other goofy characters: Josh Brolin as Bigfoot, Joanna Newsom as Sortilège, Benicio Del Toro as Smilax, even Owen Wilson, Jena Malone and Martin Short.. So how is it? One of PTA's best or did PTA get too high on his own supply? Once you've seen it, leave a comment with your thoughts on PTA's Inherent Vice. Inherent Vice is currently playing in select theaters (starting NY & La) now. We'll repost when it goes wide. »

Worshipping Weirdness: 7 Unique Books That Should Become Movies

12 December 2014 8:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice is slowly unleashing itself in a few theaters to sneak into the 2014 awards race before its wide release next year. Joaquin Phoenix stars as Doc Sportello, a strange, drug-taking private eye investigating the disappearance of an ex-girlfriend and finding himself in the middle of an insane mix of missing persons, police investigations and strange business ventures. This is the first Thomas Pynchon novel to the make it to the big screen (save for “Gravity’s Rainbow” inspiring the German docudrama Prüfstand VII). It’s a film that will never be a blockbuster success, though it boasts a cast ranging from Jena Malone and Owen Wilson to Jeannie Berlin and Eric Roberts; it’s just too weird. It is, however, a breath a freakish fresh air in a film landscape that’s gotten oppressively predictable. If this could start a trend where Hollywood embraces weird texts, there »

Inherent Vice Review

11 December 2014 11:03 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice is a mess of absurdities.  It investigates the ludicrous conventions of the detective genre.  It rambles through the self-indulgent, dying age of the hippies.  It lurches along the vainglorious, narcissistic Los Angeles culture and cityscape.  Anderson wants to package everything he can from his adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's novel, and while the result is occasionally interesting, the movie becomes enamored of its own cleverness in how it approaches its various topics with a sense of droll mockery, straddling the border of wackiness and respectability.  We're wound through a convoluted plot where the mystery may not be the point, but the points don't matter when any emotional resonance is crushed beneath the weight of smug shenanigans. Private Detective Larry “Doc” Sportello (Joaquin Phoenix) is lounging around in his beachside home in 1970 Los Angeles when he’s greeted by his old squeeze, Shasta (Katherine Waterson »

Watch Paul Thomas Anderson Explain a Scene from Inherent Vice

11 December 2014 5:42 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Save for Boogie Nights, filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson eschews doing audio commentary tracks, which is a shame because he’s an extremely intelligent and talented guy whose insights would be very much welcome.  Luckily, the next best thing to an Inherent Vice commentary track has arrived by way of a short clip from Anderson’s new film in which the writer/director discusses what’s happening on screen.  The film seems to be a bit divise among folks, but I count myself firmly in the “love it” camp.  It’s a movie that washes over you, and Anderson does an incredible job of lulling the audience into an almost hypnotic state as we follow the hilarious adventures of Joaquin Phoenix’s pothead detective Doc Sportello.  Go in with an open mind and I think you’ll have fun with it. Anyway, check out the short Inherent Vice commentary track after the jump. »

11 December 2014 2:05 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Tcl Chinese Theatre rolled out a black carpet for Paul Thomas Anderson‘s “Inherent Vice” Wednesday night. Joaquin Phoenix and Benicio Del Toro exchanged a brotherly hug on the carpet, Joanna Newsom and Jena Malone talked arm in arm, and everyone spoke warmly of each other’s involvement in the film. The cast and crew unanimously sang the praises of Anderson’s directing.

Maya Rudolph, who is married to Anderson, makes a brief but memorable appearance in her first role in one of her husband’s films. “It was so exciting,” Rudolph said of working with Anderson. “Paul’s an incredible director, probably my favorite. I love watching him work. It’s so exciting to see someone who’s so clearly their own and has so much confidence about their own vision. It’s beautiful to watch. I recommend him as a director. I hope they’ll hire me back, »

Jennifer Lawrence has also met with Paul Feig for Ghostbusters reboot

11 December 2014 10:53 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier today we brought you the news that Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect 2) had met with Paul Feig for the Ghostbusters reboot. And now we bring word that Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1) has also met with the director about a role.

Speaking with MTV (via Cbm) Lawrence said, “I actually met with the director. I had dinner with him. Yeah I sure did… I will never cross the streams.”

Lawrence and Wilson are the only confirmed names for having met with Feig, but it is assumed that Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), Melissa McCarthy (St. Vincent), Emma Stone (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and Linda Cardellini (Scooby Doo) are on the shortlist. Well, at least that was original Ghostbuster Bill Murray had on his wish list.

Jennifer Lawrence is currently starring in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which is out now in cinemas, and also stars Josh Hutcherson, »

The Vice is Right: Anderson’s Inherently Incoherent Pynchon Trip

For his seventh film, auteur Paul Thomas Anderson stakes a claim as the first filmmaker to adapt author Thomas Pynchon, electing to tackle the 2009 novel Inherent Vice. The result is a queasy mix of gonzo comic neo-noir basted in the seedy nostalgic twinge of sleazy 70s era Los Angeles teased with a numbing carnival of multifaceted tangential characters diluting the film’s potency to the reductive force equal to a generous clusterfuck of all things strange. Fluctuating styles and clashing tones further enhance the film’s resounding detachment from a core ‘mystery,’ though for a while Anderson often masters a nifty balancing act of convincing us of the film’s ability to remain idiosyncratic and without much by way of narrative substance.

Set in 1970 Southern California, the tale begins in Gordito Beach, at the home of private investigator Doc Sportello (Joaquin Phoenix). An ex-girlfriend, »

Inherent Vice is the seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first ever film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel.

Joaquin Phoenix is a hero of the '60s in the new Inherent Vice trailer

10 December 2014 4:22 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice has received a new trailer.

The trailer for the Joaquin Phoenix-starring film is narrated by Joanna Newsom.

Reese Witherspoon, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Benicio Del Toro, Martin Short, Jena Malone, Maya Rudolph and Katherine Waterston also feature in the adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's novel.

Set in the late '60s, the darkly comic film centres around Los Angeles private detective Doc Sportello (Phoenix), who is hired by his ex (Waterston) to investigate a plot involving her rich lover, his scheming wife and her boyfriend.

In doing so, he finds himself submerged in the corruption and bitterness that has replaced the optimistic heights of the swinging '60s.

The film marks the acting debut of singer-songwriter Newsom, who recently confirmed that she is working on new music.

Inherent Vice will be released on December 12 in the Us, and January 30 in the UK. »
