The noir comedy will have its Blu-ray debut in April.
In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers is preparing 'Inherent Vice' for Blu-ray on April 28.
When private eye Doc Sportello's (Joaquin Phoenix) ex-old lady suddenly shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend -- whom she just happens to be in love with -- and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a loony bin… well, easy for her to say. It's the tail end of the psychedelic '60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that "love" is another of those words going around at the moment, like "trip" or "groovy," that's being way too overused, except this one usually leads to trouble.
With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover, and a mysterious entity known as The Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists, Inherent Vice is the seventh feature film from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first film adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel. The film is part surf noir, part psychedelic romp—all Thomas Pynchon.
The Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy Combo Pack will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: Los Paranoias, Shasta Fay, The Golden Fang, and Everything In This Dream.
