    Paul Thomas Anderson is truly a master of his craft, and this film is all the proof you need to believe that. He expertly weaves together branching narratives of beautifully complex and layered characters into a cohesive, singular story of love, guilt and self-acceptance. A shocking and at times depressing tale, which yet manages to instil a sense of hope by the conclusion - quite fittingly, there comes a calm after the storm.

    Martin Scorsese revisits a genre he arguably defined in the 90s, but without the flair and frenetic energy of either Goodfellas or Casino. Instead, this film is framed through a sobering lens of old age, loss and regret - there is no glorification of the mobster lifestyle to be found, only a melancholy tale of a man who loses everything through his own choices. Perhaps the most vulnerable and introspective of Scorsese's work, with impeccable performances and an ending that sticks with you long after the credits roll.

    Hypnotic, bizarre, meticulous, beautiful... CINEMA.

    Words alone cannot do this masterpiece justice. It demands to be experienced, not summarised or even necessarily understood.

    Ennio Morricone may be the only film composer able to rival the work of Hanz Zimmer; the music is impeccable in this, and fits every scene perfectly. The old bounty hunter is also a fantastic co-lead alongside Clint Eastwood, who pretty much compete to out-badass one another the entire movie.
