Paul Thomas Anderson United States, 2015

filmcapsule's rating of the film Junun

The music of Junun is fiery, passionate and intoxicating; Anderson's companion-piece is both punchy and laconic, a cinematic travelogue capturing the spirit of communion and dialogue that pervades the music. Eschewing a buttoned-up formality that would have been singularly unsuited to the project, Anderson instead concentrates on the beat of his experience as a traveller.
