Inherent Vice (Paul Thomas Anderson)

The film centers on a pothead private eye named Doc Sportello and his hazy adventures in late 60's Los Angeles.

Can't wait to see this one. Never read the book, maybe I'll wait until after the movie. Anybody ever read it?

Kinda bummed Downey Jr didn't make the cast but excited to see the next PTA/JP collaboration. And they announced Benicio Del Toro is in it!

Filming should begin this month. PTA's regular D of P Robert Elswit is back as well.

But can it really achieve the heights of the infamous 1996 two-parter Wishbone adaptation, which was deemed too hot for PBS, and had to air on Showtime instead? :-D

Huh?

:dizzy:
I admit that that's one of my more random jokes, but I remain strangely compelled by the notion of that old Wishbone show tackling an uber-post-modern adult novel like Inherent Vice or Infinite Jest (strangely similar titles, anyone?).

I know fairly little about either of those two books, but they both seem to me to be exactly what Philip Pullman has in mind when he says there's an anti-storytelling trend in modern "serious" adult literature, with increasing emphasis on style, meta digressions, etc. Of course, Adaptation. and Atonement show that one can have both in modern movies and be totally awesome, but under-3-hour movies are still necessarily more constrained than books that are as long as the author darn well wants.

In short, I very much doubt I'd read either of those books, but I'm sure Vice will produce some fascinating movie reviews at the least, and I enjoy reading reviews almost as much as I enjoy movies themselves. :)

Gotcha. I spent like a half hour last night trying to figure out what you were saying. I thought there was some sort of obscure reference to PTA or Inherent Vice hidden in that Wishbone video.

I don't think I will see this one in theater.

In The Master I simply could not relate to any of the characters in the movie. Mister Phoenix could cry all the tears of his body in front of the camera or kick all the asses in the world, if I can't understand why, or even feel sadness or anger myself, then I don't care. When characters have strong personalities a director should be cautious to not let them just be "circus monsters" but people we can understand and share their feelings with.
And it was not the case in The Master. For me anyway.

I'm afraid that PTA (who made There Will Be Blood that I would call a masterpiece at the level of some Sergio Leone or Scorsese), will slowly take a Terrence Malick's route that I can't follow.

You should give it a second chance some time. I had the same problem you did the first time I watched it, couldn't relate/didn't get it ect. But I kept hearing about it and wondered if I missed something or if I was in the wrong frame of mind or something, I dunno, so I watched it again and ended up loving it.

I did read the book because John Densmore (Doors' drummer) referenced it a couple times in his memoir.
Plot wandered all over the map for me - mind you, this was a stoner detective.
Wonderful, lyrical prose would be matched with folly.

We are so far from the 60s now that most assume it was a nonstop psychedelic haze.
Vietnam, riots, civil rights marches, assassinations, fucking dress codes, paranoia, British Invasion,
all sorts of unhappy shit was prevalent.

Ought to reread the book again, but I just remember being soured by it.
