Inherent Vice
In "Inherent Vice," it's 1970, and paranoia is running the day when private eye Doc Sportello's (Joaquin Phoenix) ex-old lady suddenly shows up out of nowhere.

She says she's in love with her billionaire, land developer boyfriend, and that his wife and her boyfriend are plotting to kidnap him and throw him in a loony bin.

Based on the novel by Thomas Pynchon.
