A little vice is a good thing, especially when it's courtesy of Paul Thomas Anderson. Inherent Vice—the director's seventh feature film, which he adapted from the novel by Thomas Pynchon—premiered last night in LA, the perfect setting for Pynchon's trippy, late-60s psychedelic-noir romp.

See photos from the premiere below, and be sure to see Joaquin Phoenix's Golden Globe-nominated performance in select theaters this weekend and wide release January 9.
