**** is this movie great. There are only a few number of filmakers that have a flawless track record. And PT Anderson is definitely one of those. Because this film has some great characters. ANd it has everything that Ocean's Eleven should've had.

This is a classic, marvelous slow-burner: it doesn't seem like much when you first put it on, but if you stick with it and let it get its hook into you (no spoilers here) you will be richly rewarded. The performances, especially This is a classic, marvelous slow-burner: it doesn't seem like much when you first put it on, but if you stick with it and let it get its hook into you (no spoilers here) you will be richly rewarded. The performances, especially Hall's and Jackson's, are first-rate and the film is fluid, engaging, and brilliantly shot. Fans of director Paul Thomas Anderson who've seen his other work like Boogie Nights and Magnolia are in for a treat when they see this, his first film, shot when he was only 26 years old. The building blocks of his career were definitely laid here. This somewhat rare film is certainly worth seeking out. A must-see! Expand

Really well done. Amazing to think that this was Paul Thomas Anderson's first effort, because he handles everything like a grisled vet in this. The film was slow, but built up nicely and the characters were all marvelously crafted. MainReally well done. Amazing to think that this was Paul Thomas Anderson's first effort, because he handles everything like a grisled vet in this. The film was slow, but built up nicely and the characters were all marvelously crafted. Main complaint were that while it was really well done, it never really made that "jump". I think this one could have been even better, but it seemed content being what it was and was relatively safe all around. In addition, I just never really bought into John C. Reilly's performance. All of the other performances were great, but his stood out to me as something that just did not quite fit with the rest of the film. Expand
