Broadsheet Trailer Park: Inherent Vice



What you may need to know:

1. Set in 1970’s California, a permanently stoned Private Dick gets dragged in to a kidnapping conspiracy by a former girlfriend.

2. It’s Paul Thomas Anderson’s new film! The most anticipated release since the birth of Saphur II The Great.

3. The film is an adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s novel of the same name.

4. It’s also Pynchon’s first book to be adapted for screen and he is rumored to have cameo in it. It will be hard to tell as there has not been a reliable photograph taken of him in 50 years.

5. Unlike Anderson’s last two movies – There Will Be Blood (2007) and The Master (2013) – this is less character study more slapstick comedy. He said that he took a lot of inspiration from the makers of Airplane! (1980) and The Naked Gun (1988).

6. No John C. Reilly or Luiz Guzman?

7. Anderson left film school after two days because he felt his lecturers were making film boring.

8. Broadsheet Prognosis: Vice vice baby.

Release date: January 30, 2015

    He also felt the staff there didn’t know much. To illustrate this, he tells a funny story about how he sent in a page from a David Mamet screenplay for a screenwriting assignment. He received a C- and promptly left soon after

        I like Joanna. I haven’t seen her act in anything before though (bar the MGMT “Kids” video).
        Have you reason to believe she’ll suck badly enough to drag this down, or are you just not a fan in general?

            I think the “love-it-or-hate-it”, Lisa Simpson aspect of her voice has reduced massively (comparing Milk-Eyed Mender to Have One On Me).
            She’s interesting at the very least…
