The Master ★★★★½

Amazingly concentrated performances that almost overwhelm. Fascinating use of Dianetics and it's cult of reinvention as American Myth. Absorbing sound design and score. Would love to have seen this in 70mm, as it's effing amazing looking on BD in my living room. Of course the downside is, if Joaquin Phoenix's Freddie Quell doesn't connect with you, it would be hard to find a way in.
