Free Screening of Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice with Host Ryan Marker on Thursday, June 18th at 7:30 P.M.
To celebrate the birth month of the one-and-only PT Anderson, Vidiot Ryan Marker will be hosting a free screening of his latest masterpiece Inherent Vice. Vice is truly a film that demands multiple viewings and gets better with each time as any frustrated attempts at interpreting some semblance of a plot lead way to just simply accepting and inhabiting the mad world of Doc Sportello. Bring some friends and come on down to Vidiots for what will surely be a fun night.
“Inherent Vice,” is the seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first ever film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel. When private eye Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up 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 in a looney bin…well, easy for her to say. It’s the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that “love” is another 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.
