Inherent Vice (4-Oct-2014)

Director: Paul Thomas Anderson

Writer: Paul Thomas Anderson

From novel by: Thomas Pynchon

Keywords: Crime/Comedy

Film adaptation of the Thomas Pynchon novel of the same name follows a detective's mind-bending journey through the seedy underbelly of late-1960s Los Angeles counterculture.

ABSTRACT
Larry "Doc" Sportello, Los Angeles private eye with a noted affinity for marijuana, is asked to help ex-girlfriend Shasta Fay Hepworth out of a sticky situation involving shady real-estate magnate boyfriend Mickey Wolfmann and an organization known as the Golden Fang. What follows is an unnerving, disjointed trip -- in a literal and metaphorical sense -- through the tail end of Southern California's "love"-obsessed psychedelic period as Doc sets out on a gonzo mission to sort out Shasta's ridiculous state of affairs.
