I'm a very big fan of Paul Thomas Anderson. I thought Boogie Nights was extraordinary, Magnolia is one of my all-time favorite films, and There Will Be Blood, in my opinion, was the best movie of the 2000s. (I still haven't gotten around to seeing The Master.)
Still, despite my fanboy appreciation, I can fully understand where Entertainment Weekly critic Owen Gleiberman is coming from in his respectful and very well-written explanation of how and why he "fell out of love" with Anderson's films.
Regardless of your opinion of Anderson and his work, it's an excellent read.
