Inherent Vice poster

This is undoubtedly the most anticipated film of the year for me. Coming off 2012’s exquisite and perfect The Master, director Paul Thomas Anderson reunites with Joaquin Phoenix for 70s California surfer hippie detective hijinks in Inherent Vice, based on the novel by literary giant Thomas Pynchon. It looks as fucking cool as it sounds. Can’t wait until this hits theaters in December. If this isn’t on your radar, you should stop going to the movies. With a cast to die for – Josh Brolin, Benicio del Toro, Michael K. Williams, Owen Wilson, Maya Rudolph, Anders Holm of Workaholics fame, and even the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Martin Short and Eric Roberts – the latter two I can only assume will achieve a Burt Reynolds-like ascendance post Boogie Nights. Damn, I am chomping at the bit to get at this one.
