NEW DAY, NEW FILM! PHOENIX AND WITHERSPOON REUNITE FOR INHERENT VICE...10:04:00
Many of you know that one of my favourite films is 'Walk The Line' starring Reese Witherspoon and Joaquin Phoenix. I think they are a great cinematic pairing and when they are on screen together something magical always happens.
This is why I am so happy to see them return to the big screen together in 'Inherent Vice', alongside a huge all-star line-up. Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, the cast includes Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Benicio Del Toro, Katherine Waterston, Martin Short, Jena Malone and Joanna Newsom.
Based on the Thomas Pynchon novel, this film marks the first ever film adaptation of one of his novels and follows private eye Doc Sportello. When his ex-wife returns suddenly, with a story about how her new billionaire lover, who she is madly in love with, is going to be kidnapped by his wife and her new boyfriend, she asks for Doc's help.
However Doc believes that "love" is just another word being thrown around during the end of the 60s. A time when psychedelic and paranoia go hand in hand. He feels that the word "love" is being overused for more trouble than good.
In a world of characters including surfers, hustlers, dopers, loan sharks, rockers, LAPD detectives, a sax player and a mysterious figure known as the Golden Fange, which could actually just be some dodgy dentists. They do all have one similarity though lovelies, which is everything is very psychedelic!
The film is going to be out on the 30th January 2015, but you can watch the teaser trailer right here, right now...
