Inherent Vice - Official Trailer [HD]

Okay, it's official . . . Joaquin Phoenix is definitely the guy to play Richard Meltzer in any and all movies based on that great writer's life and times.  Every scene here, I look at Joaquin and I see Richard. 

And, in a parallel universe, "Inherent Vice" is a great book, my approval rating is high and my recommendation is without reservation.  Funny, funny shit, atmospheric, a vigorous invocation of the Zeitgeist of the turn of the Seventies, an intellectual challenge, and eminently readable.   I can't swear by the movie, yet, but I'll swear by the novel.  It's a great read.
