Earlier this month, Paul Thomas Anderson‘s feverishly anticipated “Inherent Vice” (read our review here) made its debut at the New York Film Festival. In addition to screening the film for the first time anywhere in the world, organizers brought Anderson out for a masterclass, which we detailed at length right here. But if you want to hear the words from the man himself, now you can.
Cory Everett snagged the audio from the talk and has posted it online. For the talk, Anderson brought a handful of clips from a wide range of films, television shows and music videos —”Police Squad!,” Neil Young‘s “Journey Through the Past,” Alex Cox‘s “Repo Man,” Alfred Hitchcock‘s “North by Northwest,” Quentin Tarantino‘s “Jackie Brown,” Frank Capra‘s “The Bitter Tea of General Yen” and more— as a conduit through which to discuss “Inherent Vice.”
It’s well worth a listen, so check it out below. “Inherent Vice” opens in limited release on December 12th.
