Synopsis:

Stoner private dick Doc Sportello is trying to track down his ex-girlfriend, Shasta Fay, and the property magnate she’s been fooling around with in late-’60s California.

Involving a hippie-hating cop, a spaced-out snitch for hire, Sportello’s uptight DA lover, a philosophising lawyer, and a laugh-out-loud-funny Martin Short as a sex-addicted coke-head, the story becomes ever more complex and elaborate.

Based on Thomas Pynchon’s picaresque novel, INHERENT VICE is director Paul Thomas Anderson’s funniest work yet – and easily as compelling as his last, THE MASTER. As in BOOGIE NIGHTS, an ensemble cast who are clearly having a ball, and the seedy authenticity of post-hippie La-La land, further enhance the film’s immense entertainment value.
