Blunt Reviews Presents: Inherent Vice (2015)

Thomas Pynchon’s seventies stoner comedy makes the leap to the big screen with Paul Thomas Anderson as writer and director. It’s a film that’s obscure and without a structured narrative, but it’s still heavily likable. It’s a classic case of character over substance and proves the novel is unfilmable. It is already on it’s way to join The Big Lebowski as a cult classic, with memorable quotations galore and a lot of character. It’s not PTA’s best and ultimately is somewhat disappointing but it’s still laugh out loud funny and a unique experience from someone who understands cinema. “Motto panukeiku!!”
