After directing The Master and There Will Be Blood Paul Thomas Anderson looks to have moved away from the more serious, dramatic movies and settled on the offbeat and the quirky with his latest offering Inherent Vice.
Based on the best selling novel of the same name by Thomas Pynchon the movie stars Joaquin Phoenix as Doc Sportello a Californian based private detective who’s is hired by an ex to find her missing current billionaire boyfriend. The film is set in the 60s and also stars Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon and Benicio Del Toro.
From the trailer above the movie has a delicious Big Lebowski feel to it.
Inherent Vice is set to open in cinemas across the UK on January 30th.
