TMBDOS! Episode 59: “Inherent Vice” (2014).
May 1, 2016Posted by on
This week Lee and Daniel conclude the podcast’s first serious look at noir, neo-noir, and crime films in general, with Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Inherent Vice”, from 2014. Because Daniel is such a big fan of both director and author, the conversation gets in depth about PT Anderson and Thomas Pynchon. Lee and Daniel also converse about their different takes on the film and how it’s held up for them with repeated viewings. Also discussed in some depth, in an effort to perv up the podcast’s reputation a bit, the career of actress Michelle Sinclair, formerly known as the porn star Belladonna — who had a minor role in the film — is talked about. It’s almost a mini bit of what the amazing Rialto Report does on a regular basis. Also covered: listener comments and what they’ve watched as of late.
Featured Music: “Harvest” by Neil Young; “Never My Love” by The Association; and “Any Day Now” by Chuck Jackson.
