I knew I would like this the minute it opened with a bunch of half naked dudes on a beach watching Phoenix finger a sand mermaid
Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix have an exceptional chemistry on screen. This film is outstanding from start to finish.
I enjoyed it, but its one of them movies where you think "what the hell was that all about"
The processing scene is the greatest scene in the history of cinema.
A flashback into a life after WW2 and hardships of life at that time. Kind of slow, but emotionally very deep at times. Not for everyone
A fascinating character study of two men whose lives are inextricably bound by love and trauma.
PSH is timeless; bizarrely believable analogy of LRH and Scientology; PTA and JP always get my attention. Fascinating expose on hopes dashed
Incredible performances by Hoffman and Phoenix. This movie is well worth the watch, especially to see how Hoffman shines in the spotlight.
I can’t remember when We watched it, but I think it was amazing
Phoenix and Hoffman provide an absolute acting masterclass. Many intepretations but for me it's partly a scathing critique of Scientology.
