INHERENT VICE (Paul Thomas Anderson, 2014)

A bizarre, but undeniably entertaining neo-noir comedy where Phoenix – playing a stoner hippie P.I. in 1970s LA – joins a large and eclectic ensemble cast. His co-stars include Josh Brolin, Reese Witherspoon, Benicio Del Toro, Maya Rudolph and many, many more.

WALK THE LINE (James Mangold, 2005)

A biopic about the legendary singer-songwriter Johnny Cash, Walk the Line earned Phoenix’s co-star Reese Witherspoon plenty of praise and accolades, including an Academy Award for Best Actress. Phoenix himself was no slouch, gathering rave reviews for his portrayal of Cash and a Best Actor nomination – it wouldn’t be the only one.
