In 1970, drug-fuelled Los Angeles detective Larry ‘Doc’ Sportello investigates the disappearance of a former girlfriend.

Adapted from Thomas Pynchon’s novel by writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson (Magnolia, There Will Be Blood, The Master), this American crime-comedy is a wild ride through a landscape of far-out scenarios and brain-melting characters, with a game supporting cast and a typically leftfield performance from Joaquin Phoenix in the central role.
