Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Anderson moves further from conventional storytelling with each new film, and closer to something more intuitive, more damning, more true. He hasn't made it there yet. God help us when he does.
Rotten: Some storylines conclude, some collide, others dissipate. But the film's main crime is this: It's boring.
Fresh: Joaquin Phoenix is perfectly cast as the perpetually befuddled Doc, a private detective of sorts who immerses himself in pot in the Los Angeles of 1970.
Fresh: If the adaptation's a little too faithful to sustain a cinematically tight story, there's still a lot to admire in the sheer, uninhibited folly of the whole thing, the gall to get groovy while the Oscar-watchers are on high alert.
A movie that can only be described as "right on"
Well acted, beatifully shot, Inherent Vice is a film to be seen. The plot meanders like that of most Film Noir so relax, roll with the punches, and indulge in your favorite vice.
i spend a lot of time reading reviews to decide to watch the movie.
this is well worth it.
maybe the new big labowski.
very good : )
I think I need to see the film again
I have been told that the film requires multiple viewings, so thats probably what I need to do. The film looks great, has some good performances, and has some funny moments. But the film is very convoluted so you need to play close attention. It's possible this film could go one to receive cult classic status like The Big Lebowski, The Thing, Empire Strikes Back and Once Upon a Time in the West but only time will tell.
