Punch-Drunk Love

Highly recommend!

I really like how Paul Thomas Anderson sets up his movies in such a way that things can happen that don't have to make sense.  You're just always plopped into a universe that's a little off.

Beautifully shot.  I love that shot where the camera is attached to the door of the car as it shuts. I also love the shot where the camera is dollying beside Lena as she walks through the garage, but the camera is outside of the garage and for most of the shot all you see is the camera moving across a plain white cinderblock wall.  Great.

And the opening shot when the garage door opens and it's early morning.
