Jack Aling’s review published on Letterboxd:
If You Blink We Go Back to the Start.
Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Thomas Anderson. Three unbelievable talents come together to create a film full of conflict and passion that questions faith through either sheer ignorance or brutal confidence.
An interesting character study that plays out like a horror film. You don't know what's lying around the corner but you can't look away as the two leads become slowly reliant on each other.
PTA's direction continues to only elevate the talent on screen which gives his films an incomparable quality that helps him to stand out amongst the rest.
