Review of “Inherent Vice”

The movie Inherent Vice came out this past winter starring Joaquin Phoenix and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. It feels like the movie starts of in the thick of the story drawing you in closer to the main character who is a private investigator willing to help his ex get out of trouble. Similar to the Dude in The Big Lebowski , Doc in Inherent Vice get thrown into situations through a lack of awareness of his surroundings, more from drugs this time unlike the Dude’s inherent lack of awareness. Although It can feel like watching a first-person roller coaster ride and that you may actually be taking drugs with these characters, fittingly, parts of the action is left to the imagination be cause you passed out a few times on the way down. I’d go see it again
