Inherent Vice Trailer: Joaquin Phoenix, Paranoia Will Destroy You!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

One of the best movies of the year (our full review is coming soon) is Inherent Vice.

Warner Bros. has released a trailer for the Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, There Will Be Blood) movie and it truly puts the plot in perspective where that previous Inherent Vice trailer only teased.

Joaquin Phoenix is Doc, a private eye in 1970 Los Angeles who is drawn into the most complicated kidnapping/extortion plot/who knows what it is?!

While he tries to wrap his head around this case that was brought to him by his ex-girlfriend, the LAPD gets involved (Josh Brolin as lead detective is bloody brilliant) and the result is one of the most dramatic, hilarious and subversive films we’ve seen in some time.

Inherent Vice opens limitedly on December 12 (to qualify for the Oscars, and we think it deserves a bevy of nominations), and then premieres everywhere January 9.

Anderson’s latest features an all-star cast beyond Phoenix and Brolin, including Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, Benicio Del Toro, Martin Short and more.
