Director: Paul Thomas Anderson. Cast: Jaoquin Phoenix, Katharine Waterston, Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, Reese Witherspoon. 2015. USA. 148min.
Stoner private dick Doc Sportello (Joaquin Phoenix) is trying to track down his ex-girlfriend, Shasta Fay (a luminous Katherine Waterston), and the property magnate she’s been fooling around with (Eric Roberts) in late-’60s California. Involving a hippie-hating cop (Josh Brolin), a spaced-out snitch for hire (Owen Wilson), Sportello’s uptight DA lover (Reese Witherspoon), a philosophising lawyer (Benicio Del Toro), and a laugh-out-loud-funny Martin Short as a sex-addicted coke-head, the story becomes ever more complex and elaborate. Based on Thomas Pynchon’s picaresque novel, INHERENT VICE is director Paul Thomas Anderson’s funniest work yet.
