Inherent Vice director Paul Thomas Anderson talks to SHOOT about how the Zucker brothers were an unlikely inspiration for his absurdist detective movie based on a Thomas Pynchon novel.

“[The Zucker brothers] make you feel like there’re no rules in a movie. If it’s going to work, it’s OK. It’s very encouraging to the mischievous side of making a film,” he says. “When you read Pynchon’s work, he does make you feel that way, too.
