It's impossible to turn a Pynchon novel into a Hollywood movie. That's a rule, 
and to this day, Inherent Vice remains the only, lucky exception. It doesn't 
try too hard to be a singular film -- it takes place in the same cinematic 
universe as The Big Sleep, Zabriskie Point, The Long Goodbye, Chinatown or The 
Big Lebowski -- but it doesn't try too hard to follow Hollywood tradition 
either. It's set in the long, dark comedown from the Summer of Love, Los 
Angeles in 1970, a world illuminated by a warm but fading afterglow of sex and 
revolution, a constellation of characters driven by rebellion, fear, paranoia, 
criminal ambition and short bursts of melancholy, a storyline punctured by 
strange little loops and occasional flashbacks. The result is a downtempo swirl 
of a detective film, a sad, mostly subtle, then at times hilariously unsubtle 
comedy, and probably the only truly great stoner noir in the history of cinema.
