The new Paul Thomas Anderson film. Anybody see this? I liked the soundtrack.

Is this about FMs who create Fearsome and Mammoth threads then delete their accounts and all their posts?

Is DDL playing FM big_dave?

Saw it today and enjoyed it a hell of a lot, but I'm still not sure if what happened during the dinner scene near the end was totally right. Will definitely see it again though. NC!

My favorite movie of the past few years.

GO IN BLIND. Don't look up anything about it going in. The trailers give about 10% of what the film is actually about.

On second viewing, the humour was more pronounced and the swooning score was really something. No more reservations about the dinner scene, seemed to make perfect sense this time given the emotional trajectory of Reynolds and Alma throughout the film.

Terrific film, it's up there with There Will Be Blood.

Loved it.

Somehow didn't think about going to see it again but I will.

A great film on first viewing and one that I think will reward repeat viewings. Trying to figure out whether it's worth the extra money to either see it blown up to 70mm or to go to one of the Wordless Orchestra showings.

^Agreed.

Just remembered that I bought tix to the live score...but that's obviously different to watching the film with music mix.

The only PTA film I'd seen prior is Boogie Nights but I loved this. As I remember it the second half in particular lifted off the screen and achieved some real greatness, but I should see it again as I feel like I wallowed in this thing so much that I didn't properly watch it.

Can't quit thinking about the film, and desperately want to see it again (it's gone from theaters here).

I'll spare the dissertation, but this might be PTA's best film. Certainly his most subtle (up to a point, obviously).

Yes, I agree it's PTA's best film and I've enjoyed them all. It would repay a second or third viewing. The best film I've seen in a very long time.
