This movie, directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Magnolia, There Will Be Blood), is set in Los Angeles in the 1970's and follows stoner private detective Doc Sportello (Joaquin Phoenix) in a part-noir, part-psychedelic romp. One day, an ex-girlfriend of his comes to him with a story about the kidnapping of her land developer boyfriend by the latter's wife and the wife's boyfriend, and he soon gets embroiled in a case that will see him cross paths with a plethora of Southern Californian colourful characters.
