Inherent Vice

Filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson tackles elusive author Thomas Pynchon's psychedelic detective novel from 2009. If you're familiar with both of those gentlemen (one of whom directed Boogie Nights, one of whom wrote Gravity's Rainbow), you should be suitably intrigued by the team-up. This '70s-set California noir finds a stoned-out private investigator (Joaquin Phoenix) asked by an ex-girlfriend to untangle a mystery he can barely comprehend while battling Nixon-era paranoia. 148 minutes R.
