Inflammatory Vices: Is Joanna Newsom starring in P.T. Anderson's new film?
Boogie Nights to Magnolia to There Will Be Blood. Let's pause right there because I have to give a small shout-out to the latter, which I consider to be Anderson's masterpiece. From the elaborate landscapes to Jonny Greenwood’s sinister score to Daniel Day-Lewis' thrilling performance as oil man Daniel Plainview, the movie marked a new turn for Anderson, showing that while his artistic eye can hone in on masterful shots with specific detail, he can also take on grand ideas with the gusto of a man who has a firm handle on his craft. And who can forget the “I drink your milkshake” scene. Fantastic stuff.
Several blogs are thrilled at the possibility that famed singer/songwriter/harpist Joanna Newsom may be making an appearance in Anderson's upcoming flick, Inherent Vice, based on a novel by Thomas Pynchon. As The Playlist states, production of the film has been kept tightly under wraps, so the only way news sources have been able to verify the cast is by capturing photos of them on set. And snapshots of Newsom have surfaced. Other confirmed cast members include Joaquin Phoenix, Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, Jena Malone and Reese Witherspoon.
Although it’s pure speculation at this point, it would be pretty exciting for Newsom to be in a feature film; she has already made her mark in the music world, releasing three fantastic records, including the incredible Ys, but she's started popping up in other places, including a guest spot on “Portlandia,” playing a busy mother in MGMT's music video for “Kids,” and appearing on “7 Minutes in Heaven” with Mike O'Brien. The last thing we saw from P.T. Anderson was last year’s The Master. While that film was an excellent addition to Anderson's already impressive cinematic portfolio, here's hoping the next one tops it.
