- A chance to revisit Paul Thomas Anderson’s delirious Californian stoner-romp, featuring some tip-top performances from the likes of Joaquin Phoenix and Josh Brolin, alongside a superb soundtrack by regular Anderson collaborator Jonny Greenwood.
For this special Scalarama screening, Dr. Joe Saunders (University of Leeds) will be joined by Dr. Alan O’Leary (University of Leeds). Alan will discuss the texture of the film — how its visual and sound tracks emphasise an experience rather than a story. Joe will discuss the text of the film – the idea of paranoiac structure, and how Pynchon’s characters navigate this.
Philosophy & Film is an ongoing series, held in partnership with the University of Leeds, exploring philosophical questions raised by some of cinema’s most intriguing films. Click here to see other films in this season.
