Even though I read the book, I wasn't ready for the style of this movie. Watching it a second time it was great, funny, sick performances across the board, even for pornstars and UFC fighters. Still sad the Jade/Denis backseat scene was cut though hahah

It's a grower. I probably won't watch it again though.

Oh wow. Some great shots and performances. I believe Sortilege speaks the ending of the book during the first clip? The Golden Fang thing isn't a bad trailer either, although it always makes me cringe a little when they mess with the order of events, screaming at a deposit slip, etc.

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

fyi:
Redbox May 5, 2015

i'm looking forward to watching it again, because now that the pynchon chat has faded and the excitement of a new release has faded and all that, my particular interest is pta having created a movie narrative without a direct center, which i think scrambles people's ideas about what a movie should be in such a way that indeed the audience was largely scrambled by this movie

i think that's very exciting and every bit a part of the most interesting cinema that's currently happening, i also think it's a progressive part of a narrative technique that pta began to install in p-dl, intensified in the master, and reached its furthest point here. in terms of disrobing the illusions of narrative that have persisted through stories for so long, and certainly through big-budget movies which try to spread as wide as they can, i admire and respect the disrobing that took place within this movie

watching iv is more than ever like panning for gold in pta land, and since i've already before made the comparison between people describing this movie sounding exactly like larry within the movie, i'd instead like to provide an allegorical video of the way pta might feel having made this movie (he's the dancing person):

Every perspective is an act of creation.

I kind of wish there was an extended or "mini-series" type cut of the film with some of this footage in it, if only because those were sick moments in the book that I'd wish seen come to life in the full narrative. But screw it.

What happened to that behind the scenes film that was to be shot on 16mm by the girl director who P.T Anderson praised earlier??

I have to say i was extremely disappointed by Inherent Vice. I can try to understand why he excised the Vegas sequence but that was such a fun/pivotal part of the book, I wanted to see that lame pimp get his white suit stained, and the Mustache cup, Bigfoots wire collection, Sportello's parents, the songs that Pynchon wrote, the local surf legend, Doc visiting the paranoid black guy. This was a real failure, thinking about it. Also what happened to the 16mm footage that was recorded at the chick planet, and FRITZ!?

Kat Waterson was great as was Short. I love JP but he was too old for his movie, Doc is like in his late 20s and Del Toro whom I love was way too old..

Funny thing I was reading Vineland and that strikes me as more of  a P.T Anderson movie, in the book ( I haven't finished it ) the main character drives his car through local businesses and I thought about Macy driving his car through the deli in Magnolia.Also in that book there is a character who is apart of a radical film collective called 24 F.P.S but overall its very similar to IV, there are a few Narc characters, and stoners, and other eccentrics. One last thing that would have been cool: to have Zoyd in the Inherent Vice movie, since he lived @ Manhattan Beach and was a stoner it would be cool to have him run into Doc.

In terms of cinematography 1:85 aspect ratio does not seem to suit IV, his best work is shot Anamorphic. A lot of people think the master was shot on 65 but it was actually shot mostly on 35mm and some scenes 65mm like Nolan does. I hope he goes back to his Panavision Anamorphic lenses.

Ultimately, I love P.T Anderson but i have to be honest with myself. I wonder what y'all think? I hope he stays away from adapting because I really enjoy his original screenplays.

The atmosphere in Hollywood is a bit disconcerting, everything is PG-13, and a tent pole movie, every movie has to have a built in audience already to ensure a box office so that is why comic book movies, book adaptions, and re makes are so prevalent. No more than ever we need P.T Anderson original scripts!
