Daniel Kibbe’s review published on Letterboxd:
This movie is even more brilliant than I remember. Pretty much everything in this film is absolutely stellar. Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Amy Adams all give tour-de-force performances. The cinematography is beautiful, worthy of being studied in film schools. The soundtrack is enchanting, and the script is truly masterful.
There are, in fact, many masters involved with this film. The actors are masters of acting, the script is a master of screenplays... And Paul Thomas Anderson is a master of cinema in its highest form.
