As we work our way through the Films section of the Gallery to ensure it is as complete as possible, today we get to Inherent Vice. This section was mostly done, so we’ve just added a few additional international posters – I love the artwork for this film, it’s so striking and original! Reese only had a tiny part in this film but she was of course memorable. This was a completely different film than anything Reese has done before – I loved seeing her work with such a unique director and fabulous cast, and I hope she does more like this in the future.

Today the Gallery has been updated with Inherent Vice photos – HQ stills, trailer screencaptures, posters, and HD film screencaptures. Reese had a small role as Penny in this comedy-mystery directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and co-starring Joaquin Phoenix. It was an intriguing film … it was refreshing to see Reese in such a different type of film, and she was great in her few short scenes – her character almost reminded me of Tracy Flick! Not to mention seeing her reunited with Joaquin Phoenix! Browse through the photos in our Gallery, and be sure to watch the movie itself.
When private eye Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady suddenly shows up, out of nowhere, with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend (whom she just happens to be in love with) and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him into a looney bin…well, easy for her to say.
It’s the tail end of the psychedelic ’60s and paranoia is running the day. Doc knows that “love” is another one of those words going around at the moment, like “trip” or “groovy,” that’s being way too overused – except this one usually leads to trouble. With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover – and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists. Part surf noir, part psychedelic romp – all Thomas Pynchon.

Cannes: Reese Witherspoon Joining Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘Inherent Vice’
All actors want to work with Paul Thomas Anderson and it’s no surprise he’s lining up a killer cast for his adaptation of the Thomas Pynchon novel Inherent Vice. I hear Reese Witherspoon is the latest marquee name to join Joaquin Phoenix, Owen Wilson and Benicio Del Toro in the film. Book takes place in Los Angeles at the turn of the 1970s, as drug-fueled detective Larry “Doc” Sportello investigates the disappearance of an ex-girlfriend. Witherspoon re-teams with Phoenix, with whom she had a triumphant pairing in the Johnny Cash biopic Walk The Line. Witherspoon won the Oscar for her portrayal of June Carter and Phoenix got an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of Johnny Cash. Warner Bros will distribute Inherent Vice. She’s repped by CAA and Management 360.
