Paul Thomas Anderson makes first foray into docu with 'Junun'

The reviews of Paul Thomas Anderson's Junun have been respectful but not enthusiastic. This did not stop me from watching it. Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood stars in it, so I know that even if it turns out to be terrible, I still have Greenwood to listen to. But the film is not about him, and he barely says a word.

Junun, an alternate spelling of "junoon," which means "mania," or "the madness of love" is a decent, stylishly packaged music-themed doc, but it's not that great. It had its worldwide debut at the New York Film Festival, last week, and is currently streaming on MUBI, which charges $4.99 a month (or $39.99 a year) for access to a library of hand-selected flicks. Check out the trailer below.
