089-21-2012 - DFW.com - Cary Darling, Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson crafts engrossing, big-canvas character studies, from the cheesy '70s porn star of Boogie Nights and the gritty oilman of early-20th-century America in There Will Be Blood to the interwoven lives of contemporary L.A. in Magnolia. But The Master may go down as one of his most compelling works for two simple reasons: Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

There's the added heat generated by the subject matter -- the inner world of a religion that seems suspiciously like Scientology -- but that would matter little if the performances weren't so riveting.
