    Maybe Joaquin will become to Pynchon what Depp became to Hunter.

    Exciting news. Inherent Vice looked to me pretty much adaptable for the screen. Although it is not the case with the sublime “Gravity’s Rainbow”, I would like to see some quirky episode from this book turned into a film or an animated cartoon. Pity Pynchon didn’t allow Laurie Anderson to make an opera of it.
