I keep waiting for Paul Thomas Anderson to stop making student films, but he hasn't gotten there yet. Someone needs to sit him down and tell him he can't write for shit. Unfortunately for him, producers keep indulging him, and I'm forced to sit through more and more pretentious bullshit from him.

Please STOP giving him money to make films!

I can't for the life of me imagine why people are saying good things about this movie. Worst of all is the acting. Daniel Day-Lewis chews the scenery almost as badly as he he did in GANGS OF NEW YORK and all of the other characters are treated like furniture by the writer. The movie is interminably long at 2 1/2 hours, and is truly a butt-buster.

Good luck making it through this one.

I thought it was a better film than a lot of his other stuff, but the ending was just random.

PTA seems to have lost the sense of fun he had in "Boogie Nights," and everything he does now takes itself so so seriously.

I seriously could not explain how crap and OVER RATED this film was! it was slow and the plot was going nowhere.
i kept hoping something would actually piece the random scenes together towards the end.. but they didn't.

0/10 for this one, mate. it was absolute rubbish.
