Inherent Vice

Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson

Movie poster for “Inherent Vice”.

I come right out and say it: this is a lot like “The Big Lebowski” – but not as good. The film was too long. That’s mainly because the story was too confusing to me to actually really care about what’s going on.

But individual scenes were very funny and enjoyable. Loved the performances of Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin and Katherine Waterston. Actually I liked much about how the movie was done otherwise. But unfortunately, I found the parts greater than the whole.
