PODCAST: Inherent Vice – Paul Thomas Anderson Retrospective Pt.5 (S01E20)

This week, #AtlanticSC closes out their Paul Thomas Anderson Retrospective with a discussion on the director’s latest film, INHERENT VICE. To close out the retrospective in style, no to mention show how reactions to INHERENT VICE were divisive, Jason and Lee decided to invite some friends to share their thoughts on the film.

The film stars drug use throughout, sexual content, graphic nudity, language and some violence… “But, that’s Shasta… she’s a fun character.”
