Inherent Vice

(2014 / dir. by Paul Thomas Anderson / 149 minutes)

Sunday, February 4, 7:00 pm / CERIA 365

Enter through the front door of CERIA, near the elevator.

Paul Thomas Anderson’s least watched film since Hard Eight (1997) is his most underrated: a melancholy detective story set in the beachside communities of Los Angeles in 1970, adapted from the novel by Thomas Pynchon. “I never remember plots in movies,” Anderson said at a festival screening of Inherent Vice. “I remember how they make me feel and I remember emotions and I remember visual things that I’ve seen.” Filled with seaside light and the cultural and individual malaise of characters unmoored and adrift (beautifully narrated in Joanna Newsom’s coastal cadence) Inherent Vice is a mystery and a love story, by turns funny, sad, romantic, and strange.

The tenth in a series of historically significant (and always entertaining) film classics, screened every other weekend throughout the semester.

Free and open to all UNM students.
