THERE WILL BE WEED: Win Tix To Inherent Vice

Inherent Vice Poster


Chances are that if you are reading this you are a fan of the work of director Paul Thomas Anderson, who, a reasonable argument could be made, is the Gen. X equivalent of Scorsese/Kubrick. Chances are also good that you are a fan of the work of novelist Thomas Pynchon, ludicrously long-winded hermetic hippy oracle. By now you’ve no doubt heard the amazing news that Anderson has attempted the cinematic impossible — transmuting one of Pynchon’s dense mystical doorstops of a novel, specifically 2009’s Inherent Vice — into an epic cosmic stoner slapstick starring the Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Martin Short, Katherine Waterston and Joanna Newsom. Lastly, chances are very, very good that you would be interested in seeing such a film. That’s where we come in. At the personal behest of Mr. Anderson — long story — we have been gifted with a block of tickets to distribute to our readers. Why? Because Paul Thomas Anderson loves Phawker and we love you. To qualify to win, all you need is love and a working mailing address to which we can send hard copy movie passes good for any screenings at any area theater showing the film (excepting AMC theaters) after Saturday. Shoot us an email at FEED@PHAWKER.COM with your full name and a mobile number for confirmation and the magic words THERE WILL BE WEED in the subject line. Good luck and godspeed!
