Another triumph from one of contemporary cinema’s most audacious and artistically ambitious directors, Paul Thomas Anderson’s (Magnolia, There Will Be Blood, The Master) hilarious, jubilant Inherent Vice is the first ever adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel. Set in a kaleidoscopic 1970s California Joaquin Phoenix plays Doc Sportello, a shambolic stoner and private investigator whose old girlfriend (Katherine Waterston) asks him to find out if her lover’s wife is plotting to have him sectioned. So begins a trippy, convoluted shaggy dog exploration of contemporary counterculture, by turns colourfully antic and dreamily woozy, with a killer cast including Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Martin Short and Reese Witherspoon.

“The dazzling new film from Paul Thomas Anderson […] Stupendous” ***** Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
