eagerly anticipated, sorely disappointed
[--- Good ---]by VIP MemberSep 26, 2012
A good movie, but a little difficult to follow. Many critics has hail this movie as a masterprice. I like this movie, but it not a classic or it's not Oscar calbur. If I were voting for the Academy Awards, I wouldn't vote for the movie for Best Picture. but I like the performances from Joaquin Phoneix, Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams. Phomiex plays a World War 2 sailor who came home from the war with mental health problems until he turned to Hoffman for help. He runs a religious cult which is compared to Scientology, but I disagree. The film has nothing to do with Scientology. This isn't Director Paul thomas Anderson's best film. There are many movie that he directed that is better. I like the look and the sound of the film. that may be better than the overall movie. I was told that you may have to see the movie twice to understand the nature of the film. And I'm not going to do that, at least not for right now.

The film is unsatisfying. When you don't care what happens to the characters, when you leave the theater thinking, "How in the world do the critics applaud this stinker," it's clear that it's not worth your money or time. I really do not want to know or follow the saga of a "smart" guy who uses a psychotic drifter who has a kind of independence that "The Master" admires. How often do we see people who get all kinds of admiration but are REALLY not all that great.
