Watch: Paul Thomas Anderson Narrates a Scene From 'Inherent Vice'

Joaquin Phoenix picked up a surprise Golden Globe nomination this morning for his performance as pot-smoking gumshoe Doc Sportello. In this scene, his investigation of the murky disappearance of his old flame, Shasta (Katherine Waterston), among many other red herrings, has led him to a mental health facility that turns the drug freaks of the period (here, ’70s Southern California) into washed-out, regular-normals.

"Inherent Vice" opens in New York and LA on Friday via Warner Bros.
