Paul Thomas Anderson’s new film “Inherent Vice” hits theaters on January 9th. The seventh feature from P.T., it stars Joaquin Phoenix, who starred in his last movie “The Master.” Reese Witherspoon, Josh Brolin, Benicio del Toro, Maya Rudolph, Martin Short, Jena Malone, Owen Wilson and Eric Roberts are also cast in the picture, set in the 70’s, about an adventure of an L.A. detective.
The Coen Brothers have gone from Funky Indy filmmakers to mainstream Hollywood since they first arrived in 1984. A follower of their work since “Blood Simple,” which I saw at The Quad theater in NYC’s Village area, I’m looking forward to their new film “Inside Llewyn Davis.” Starring Justin Timberlake, the film also more than solidifies the singer’s place as an A-List movie actor.
Spike Lee’s new film “Red Hook Summer” hits theaters on Friday. The latest installment from his “Chronicles of Brooklyn,” it follows previous releases “She’s Gotta Have It,” “Do The Right Thing,” “Crooklyn,” “Clockers” and “He Got Game.”
