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.
