The Next Best Picture Podcast – “Inherent Vice”

By Matt Neglia 

The 2014 retrospective continues this week with one of the year’s more challenging films, Paul Thomas Anderson’s adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s “Inherent Vice.” With an incredibly dense noir plot, lots of characters and plenty of comedic gags, this one gave us a lot to talk about as our reactions were pretty split. We do our best to break down the film’s whacky and ever-evolving story, the performances (led by Joaquin Phoenix), the technicals and more! Joining me for this podcast review I have Josh Parham, Dan Bayer, Cody Dericks, Danilo Castro & Patreon guest Travis Clark. Also be sure to check out our other 2014 reviews of “Selma,” “Ida,” “Foxcatcher,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel” & “Wild.”
