Brilliant

As bold and confounding as The Master, but funnier and more entertaining. Enigmatic.

A groovy, richly funny stoner romp that has less in common with “The Big Lebowski” than with the strain of fatalistic, ’70s-era California noirs (“Chinatown,” “The Long Goodbye,” “Night Moves”)...

If not quite on a par with PTA’s best, this is still a richly intoxicating brew of humour, violence and melancholy.

It's a film you sink into, like a haze on the road, even as it jerks you along with spikes of humor.

As antic as Boogie Nights and Punch-Drunk Love, but with The Master and There Will Be Blood’s uncanny feel for the swell and ebb of history.

Anderson has all manner of fun with the tale's whirling, blurring trajectory.

It all serves a portrait of 1970 California that mixes absurdity with an air of looming cataclysm...

Just relax and let this beautiful, haunting, hilarious, chaotic, irritating and possibly profound tragicomedy wash over you. There is nothing else out there like it.
