trippy and surreal, but not for everybody
Inherent Vice is an excellent movie, but it’s not for everybody.
It’s based on a novel by Thomas Pynchon, a surreal American writer mainly inspired by the transition from the 60s to the 70s, and its repercussions throughout American society.
As a result, it’s a rather artsy movie, filled with interesting characters and driven by a pot-smoking PI played, wonderfully, by Joaquim Phoenix. There is a lot to like about it, from its interesting meditations on life to its cast of quirky, oddball characters, but it’s not a Hollywood movie and it will disappoint anybody looking for glitzier productions filled with special effects or cheap drama.
The plot itself, rather meandering and confusing, is rather irrelevant, but the movie as a whole is original and, if you can read between the lines, thought-provoking. Normally I would give it a higher score, but when I think of the novel it was based on I can’t help thinking that the pace was a little too slow, and too many amazing moments in the novel were just trash-canned to keep the budget down.
Still, very original and interesting, but be prepared for quite a trip (especially if you smoke a joint first, which would really help getting into the main character’s shoes)
Instant cult classic
When my friends and I went to the cinema just a few days ago, we didn’t know what to expect. I, at least, had heard about Pynchon and knew what kind of an author he was, while my friends, on the other hand, had absolutely no way of knowing what they were getting themselves into. The movie started playing, and for a little while we weren’t quite sure what to think. It took some time for us to get into the atmosphere and understand what we were actually dealing with here. Once we got it, we just started laughing. We fell silent. We laughed. And we kept on laughing throughout the film. And when I left the cinema and walked out on the street and took the train home and went to bed, I kept laughing to my self in the darkness. What was I laughing at? I’m not sure, but God damn was it funny. The plot, the dialogue, the acting, the music, the endless amount of new characters, everything about this movie makes a lasting impression. It is a movie in which every scene is memorable. And a movie you can keep on quoting again and again and again for ages with your friends, and still laugh about it. Rather elegantly it avoids jokes of poor taste, and focuses instead on a kind of black humor that will remind you of another time and another place, probably long before you were born. It’s not for everyone, I’ll admit that. Some people may not like it, and that’s OK. But I reckon that this movie will be watched for years by a small but dedicated following. I won’t be telling anything about the plot. You’ll have to experience that for yourself. So all in all. The humor, the wit, the elegance, in my opinion this movie is an instant cult classic.
