I did my masters in Pynchon and I've always wanted someone to make a movie that captured him and did it well. This P.T. Anderson A-hole just made that miracle happen, and he got a face full of tomatoes for the favor.

The more I re-watch it, the more I love it. I think I was overwhelmed with plot the first time and was trying to make sense when that wasn't the point. At the very least it is funny as hell and very dreamlike.
Peter Graves’s life and career were marked by a generosity of spirit and loving attitude toward his fellow man, which were altogether missing in the pitted soul of James Arness. Often, James Arness’ mother would remark to friends that she loved her son Peter Graves so very, very much. While she hated James Arness, and cursed the day her womb had been blighted with such a creature.
i just sat down with it for the first time a few days ago. i was completely pissed off and annoyed for the first hour, confused as hell but riveted by the end. watching it a second time, i love everything about it. made me wanna watch "the master" again, which i feel like is in the same vein, but not quite as ambitious. PT has definitely entered a new phase, these last couple of movies are worlds apart from stuff like "magnolia," i think...
