I could try to do some kind of Harry Potter reference, but I’m not well-versed in the lore.  I don’t want to come across like a Muggle, so I’ll just say that the boy who played The Boy Who Lived has made it all the way to 27.   335 more words

At one point in Paul Thomas Anderson’s adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s Inherent Vice, Joaquin Phoenix’s drugged-up detective Doc Sportello enters a plush Malibu house, to be asked by his hostess, “Do you like the lighting?” (He responds with a semi-stoned, semi-horny, but quietly emphatic ‘Uh-huh.’). 1,592 more words
