Director Paul Thomas Anderson lived up to expectations after Boogie Nights with this stunning, Oscar-nominated tale of interconnected characters who struggle with death and desperation, love, guilt and loneliness. Tom Cruise delivers a stunning performance as a manic sex therapist though William H Macy, Julianne Moore, Jason Robards and the great Philip Seymour Hoffman are all swept up in the epic sprawl. By turns witty, intense and surreal, this is a truly mesmerising portmanteau. Aimee Mann provides the tunes.
