Addiction Inherent" is a marine insurance that is something that will inherently screw up, we can draw a parallel to Paul Thomas Anderson's films, you always know what is going to be great and you always know what will be the defects, here we follow the Larry's story "Doc" Sportello (Joaquin Phoenix) is a private detective who is hired to investigate the death of a billionaire, simple plot right ?, not actually the film has numerous secondary plots, which makes it very, very confused, what bothers you, but it also puts the vibe of the movie, which is all 70, and it looks like all the characters in the film are completely stoned and disoriented (neither the viewer will be), Joaquin Phoenix is a performance amazing, with a mixture of Vincent Vega Pulb Fiction and the Dude from the Big Lebowski, Phoenix has a flawless performance. And as I had already said in my introduction, we always know for what reasons Paul's films will stand out, and the picture is stamped figurine, a lot of that is thanks to Robert Elswit who is a director of incredible photography, and movies Paul are what they are, much thanks to him, here he leaves the completely 70 climate and the picture is colorful, vibrant, but always has a haze over overshadowing, paralleling the mystery and of course the drugs, which are used as water in the film, the soundtrack is also great, the music hardly for it increases, decreases, rings, but she is always present there, "Addiction Inherent" is the victim of its script and its rhythm, and its secondary performances are weak too, but gets away with a great assembly, photography and soundtrack.
