EW movie critics Owen Gleiberman and Lisa Schwarzbaum are back for the latest installment of “Movie Talk with Owen and Lisa.” This time, they are discussing Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest film — The Master.
Lisa calls it a “thorny, complicated, difficult and … extraordinary film” and believes you have to see it more than once. Owen says there is “one thing I loved about this movie and one thing in it that I really think didn’t work.” He explains that while he enjoyed the “whole take on Scientology or religion just like it,” he didn’t think that the “movie invites you into a true identification with Joaquin Phoenix’s character.” Watch the full video below!
