Paul Thomas Anderson’s INHERENT VICE to Have World Premiere at New York Film Festival

The New York Film Festival made a hell of a first selection by nabbing David Fincher’s Gone Girl as its opening night film, and now the fest’s second selection makes it an even more enticing destination.  Writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice will have its world premiere at NYFF 2014 on October 4th, as the pic as been selected as the fest’s centerpiece gala.  The Thomas Pynchon adaptation is led by Joaquin Phoenix, with an eclectic cast that also includes Josh Brolin, Reese Witherspoon, and Owen Wilson.  Per THR, NYFF director Kent Jones describes Inherent Vice as “a journey through the past, bringing the texture of the early ‘70s SoCal counterculture back to full-blown life.  It’s a wildly funny, deeply soulful, richly detailed, and altogether stunning movie.”

With the one-two punch of premiering Gone Girl and Inherent Vice, NYFF is giving the traditional festival juggernaut TIFF a run for its money.  Read a synopsis for the book after the jump.  NYFF 2014 runs from September 27th through October 13th, and Inherent Vice opens in limited release on December 12th. 

Here’s a synopsis for Pynchon’s Inherent Vice:

Part noir, part psychedelic romp, all Thomas Pynchon- private eye Doc Sportello surfaces, occasionally, out of a marijuana haze to watch the end of an era

In this lively yarn, Thomas Pynchon, working in an unaccustomed genre that is at once exciting and accessible, provides a classic illustration of the principle that if you can remember the sixties, you weren’t there.

It’s been a while since Doc Sportello has seen his ex-girlfriend. Suddenly she shows up with a story about a plot to kidnap a billionaire land developer whom she just happens to be in love with. It’s the tail end of the psychedelic sixties in L.A., and Doc knows that “love” is another of those words going around at the moment, like “trip” or “groovy,” except that this one usually leads to trouble. Undeniably one of the most influential writers at work today, Pynchon has penned another unforgettable book. [Amazon]

    Great news. I read a report a while ago which suggested both Gone Girl and Inherent Vice would premier at NYFF. The other film the report claimed would be at NYFF is Interstellar. It is most likely going to be the closing at the film festival.

      i don’t think Nolan would have all the effects done by then.

        From what I have heard the film has been done in some time now. There have been numerous screenings of the film so I would think the film is done. I have also read comments from people who worked on the effects that they have already finished their job months ago.

        I believe Interstellar comes out this November so having it done by October would seem normal.

      • Strong Enough

        I think Nolan’s a dickbag who proved himself a hack with Rises. Can’t wait for Interstellar to bomb hard. See ya in the comment section clown face!

        Nolan is a director who tries so hard to be intellectual and clever that his movies are basically pretentious bore fests.
        Don’t get the Nolan hype at all!

      Yeah I read the same thing. Furthermore, there’s even some buzz Interstellar might even open at Telluride first.

    Great news.
    Now give me the trailer already!!!

  • blake011

    That’s not good news that it gets the centerpiece. Usually the lesser films or the difficult films get that. I guess those early reports of it being oblique and demanding are true.
