Joaquin Phoenix and Josh Brolin aren't exactly seeing eye to eye.

The first image from Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice" has arrived, and in it the two stars sport wildly-different looks (Phoenix's bearded P.I. is a far cry from Brolin's flat-topped detective) as they sit beside each other at a diner counter.

Set in 1970 Los Angeles, the Thomas Pynchon adaptation stars Phoenix as Larry "Doc" Sportello, a drug-addled P.I. investigating his ex-girlfriend's disappearance. In addition to Brolin, the all-star cast for the film - which has been slated to bow at the New York Film Festival on October 4 - includes Owen Wilson, Katherine Waterston, Reese Witherspoon, Benicio del Toro, Jena Malone, Martin Short, Maya Rudolph and Eric Roberts.
