Inherent Vice Indeed


While trolling the net for more information on Thomas Pynchon‘s upcoming title The Bleeding Edge, I ran across a brief interview with director Paul Thomas Anderson regarding his work on the film version of Inherent Vice. Anderson describes his film of Pynchon’s novel as “like a Cheech and Chong movie”.

I wish that I could muster some enthusiasm for the film, and for Pynchon’s forthcoming novel, but after Inherent Vice it’s doubtful. I mean, have you read Inherent Vice ? What a disenchanting book. Take a look at the original book trailer for Inherent Vice, reportedly narrated by the reclusive author, and you’ll get some sense of my dismay.
