The most horrible movie I have seen

I love almost all kinds of movies. However, I found this movie truly disgusting and having no purpose. It tries to masquerade as art, but it fails beyond miserably. Joaquin Phoenix does look like a miserable, sick alcoholic, so he did succeed at that. It is filled with closeups of Phillip saying nonsense over and over. I would never recommend that anyone see this movie. Safe your money; believe me, I would love to get mine back.

Great acting, but confusing, non-linear story, director places style over real revelation of characters, motives, or ideas. Fascinating topic, but we did not come away feeling as if we had a deeper understanding of what motivates the cult leader or followers, other than the fact that some followers are deeply damaged (e.g. Phoenix's character) and the leader is borderline nuts (not to mention his wife!) Met friends outside after the film. Their reviews: 1. "I hated it." 2. "Oy vay"

The hype for this plodding piece of film is so wrong. Although the acting is great, save the overly melodramatic performance of Amy Adams who I love, there is simply no story there....2 1/2 hrs of my life I can never get back...

Great film! Fantastic performances. Joachim Phoenix gives an award worthy performance as does Philip Seymour Hoffman - and the rest of the cast is amazing also. The sound track is ground-breaking and heightens the drama in unexpected and crucial ways. This is the kind of movie that both entertains and makes people think! Would like to see a lot more movies of this caliber in the AMC theaters! Go AMC! Caro

Absolute Crap!

Excellent acting but no storyline whatsoever. 2+ hours of boredom. Almost no one in the theatre. One couple left after about 30 minutes. I should have joined the exodus.
