They also simplified The Master into its purest essence- about two dudes in love. I wish there was a bit more about PDL too. No one ever really talks enough about that one (and it is like my second favourite), it's a shame.

And damn, Maron mentioning that it sounded like PTA was making a film based on the Hollywood Blacklist was so on point, I could really see that in my head. Just like his idea for the 'early days of tv' film. They both look a little bit like The Master in my head.

best. pta. interview. ever.

best parts(some already mentioned):
. sydney getting more discussion than pdl
. pta looking for porn landmarks
. just sounds like two dudes talking
. pta getting giggly uncomfortable at pynchon questions
. breakdown of 'master' as 'two dudes in love'
. breakdown of 'cmbb' as 'a son and father have problems'
. dad talk ( i feel you on this, Reelist, but from the other side, since i actually lost my dad 9 years ago and did watch the film with him, as well.)
. shooting first parts of IV while him and joaquin 'just hanging out'
. every other part
. the whole thing

Definitely the loosest and openest we've heard him since probably the Boogie Nights commentary.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

after monthsss of waiting for the press releases of this film, the interview series so far have been out of the park.

The Maron podcast was so fucking cool. Hearing PTA talk about his family life as a child was so innocent and amazing. I definitely agree that the stoner vibe to this film has given the interviews a more open, colloquial feeling.
Loved the part when Maron is like "Why didnt they just fuck?!" when describing the Master. This guy is hilarious, and its about time that we got an in depth interview like this.

Loved the entire thing. theres simply too many great moments to choose from to point out...but fuck it im going to list a couple off the top of my head:
Foster Wallace as his teacher at Emerson?! That part blew me away. fuck. that is so cool
the cigarette discussion was hilarious. I just quit myself (its day 7 right now) so that was quite funny to listen to
lovedddddd how he talked about "what this film means" for every single one of his movies. the magnolia discussion was truly enlightening.
the sterling hayden thing at the end was really cool. i know im not the only one here who ran off to youtube to watch those shortly after

All this conversation about Inherent Vice has made me doubly in anticipation for my next viewing. Will be flying home tonight and looking forward to visiting the local theatre to watch it like 6 times this week- gathering all of my friends who dont know much about film and ushering them with me.

Yeah, I had the same reaction.

I remember coming across a message board thread years ago, and the topic was about pairing up directors with their literary analogues. Someone paired up PTA with DFW. I've noticed the comparison elsewhere over the years, too, but I don't know enough about Wallace's work to thoroughly comment on the supposed connection. However, I have read Wallace's fantastic essay, "Big Red Son," which is about the pornography industry and his visit to the AVN Awards. He actually mentions Anderson and Boogie Nights in that essay.

Also, I know that Wallace was an instrumental figure in the conception of "New Sincerity." The connection between this concept (which entails the creation of works of art that expressly refuse cynicism, detached irony, etc.,) and filmmakers like Anderson are pretty obvious, and this has been discussed in academic articles. Because of all of this, DFW and PTA have been vaguely linked in my head for a while. So, finding out that the former taught the latter struck me as both surprising and totally appropriate. A neat piece of information, for sure.

Anyone know if the C&RV site is going to do a series of interviews for IV with key production players like they did with The Master?

Totally possible but I doubt it? I did them for The Master but that film seemed to have a lot less press than this one does and for IV it feels like most of the key dept. heads have already been interviewed someplace else. The only stuff I'd really want to hear from PTA is if there was much other stuff from the book was shot but cut and if he realizes the extent to which his films challenge audiences. But if they do one, I'd read it.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

props for that modage, they were all great reads. since you did it for The Master why can't you do it for IV? I'm sure the board can come up with a few dozen never-before-asked questions.

I don't write there anymore. But like I said, fingers crossed, maybe they're working on it.

Good interview with DAZED.

PTA talks about JAWS/the sea, Wes/BUDAPEST ("No matter what anyone has to say about Wes Anderson, you can’t fault that movie"), Cruise/TOMORROW and QT's "retirement."
