About INHERENT VICE
INHERENT VICE is the seventh feature from Academy Award®nominee Paul Thomas Anderson and the first ever film adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel.

 

When private eye Doc Sportello's ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot byhis wife andherboyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him a loony bin...well, easy for her to say.

 

It's the tail end of the psychedelic ‘60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that "love" is another of those going around at the moment, like "trip" or "groovy," that's being way too overused—except that this one usually leads to trouble.

 

With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover, and a mysterious entity knows as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentist...Part surf noir, part psychedelic romp – all Thomas Pynchon.

 

The film is produced by Anderson, together with Academy Award®nominees JoAnne Sellar and Daniel Lupi.
