by Frances Marlatt
“Inherent Vice” is a new film directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (“The Master,” “Boogie Nights”), based on Thomas Pynchon’s novel of the same name. The film stars Joaquin Phoenix who is accompanied by an exceptionally diverse cast that includes Owen Wilson, Josh Brolin, Reese Witherspoon, and Martin Short.
Phoenix plays Doc Sportello, a private investigator leading a hippie lifestyle that includes maintaining a fairly perpetual high. Taking place in Los Angeles over a series of days situated somewhere between the end of the 60’s and beginning of the 70’s, the film itself seems to exist beneath a thick haze of pot smoke.
