Private investigator Larry “Doc” Sportello investigates the disappearance of his ex-girlfriend’s boyfriend in Los Angeles. Paul Thomas Anderson’s wild and entrancing new movie, the very first adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel, is a cinematic time machine, placing the viewer deep within the world of the paranoid, hazy L.A. dope culture of the early ’70s. It’s not just the look (which is ineffably right, from the mutton chops and the peasant dresses to the battered screen doors and the neon glow), it’s the feel, the rhythm of hanging out, of talking yourself into a state of shivering ecstasy or fear or something in between. The new film stars Joaquin Phoenix,  [ Read More ]

Interview: Terry Gilliam and Lucas Hedges Talk The Zero Theorem

People have often pondered whether being alone is exclusively linked to being lonely, and whether they feel more connected to other people when they’re using technology, and isolated when they’re speaking to someone who’s actually in the same room as them. That question of how people relate to others in their lives in the ever-increasing connected world, and how they can learn to embrace being alone without getting lonely, is powerfully examined in the new sci-fi fantasy drama, ‘The Zero Theorem.’ Director Terry Gilliam effortlessly explored how people can only truly make sense of who they are when they’re alone through the script from first-time feature film writer, Pat Rushin.  [ Read More ]
