The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

THE film from mav­er­ick writer-di­rec­tor Paul Thomas An­der­son ( ThereWil­lBe Blood) has two sto­ries to tell. One is the tale of a man and a move­ment of his own mak­ing. The other is the tale of a man un­able to make a move of any kind. Philip Sey­mour Hoff­man plays a charis­matic fig­ure (based on con­tro­ver­sial Scien­tol­ogy founder L. Ron Hub­bard) who be­comes the cre­ator of a strange new be­lief sys­tem called The Cause. Joaquin Phoenix plays a new re­cruit to the fold, a tor­mented loner who drifts in and out of the in­tense in­flu­ence of his men­tor. An elab­o­rate enigma, sure to be cel­e­brated and cas­ti­gated in equal mea­sure. ★★★ Ex­tras: Back Be­yond, Teasers and Trail­ers ★
