INHERENT VICE comes to DVD & Blu-ray July 22nd
From Paul Thomas Anderson and Thomas Pynchon comes “The comic noir-to-end-all-noirs” (New York Times). It’s the tail end of the psychedelic ‘60s and paranoia is running the day from the desert to the sea of sunny Southern California. Everything’s gone from “groovy” to “where you at, man?” in what seems like a matter of moments.
When private eye Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap said billionaire and throw him in a loony bin…well let’s just say it all starts to get a little peculiar.
Doc knows that “love” is another of those words going around at the moment, like “trip” or “groovy,” that’s being way too overused—except this one usually leads to trouble.
With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover, and a mysterious entity known as The Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists… part surf noir, part psychedelic romp—all Thomas Pynchon.
Inherent Vice superlative cast stars Oscar® Nominees Joaquin Phoenix (The Master, Walk the Line), Josh Brolin (True Grit, No Country For Old Men), Owen Wilson (The Royal Tenenbaums, Midnight in Paris), Katherine Waterston (Michael Clayton, Boardwalk Empire), Oscar® winners Reese Witherspoon (Walk the Line) and Benicio Del Toro (Traffic), Martin Short (Frankenweenie), Jena Malone (The Hunger Games series) and musician Joanna Newsom.
Inherent Vice will be available on Blu-ray (SRP $44.95) and DVD (SRP $39.95) from July 22nd and available on digital from July 8th.
