After coming to terms that he'll never see Dodd again, he picks up a girl at a bar.

* AllJustADream: The final shot could be interpreted two ways: Either Freddie's passed out on the beach and just made the movie up...

* ShoutOut: The scenes of Freddie in a psychiatric hospital were inspired by the famous Creator/JohnHuston documentary ''Film/LetThereBeLight'', with Anderson going so far as to lift bits of dialogue from the Huston film.

The film stars Creator/JoaquinPhoenix (In his first film role after his seven year hiatus) as Freddie Quell, a misguided young man who, after demobilizing from WorldWarII, falls under the sway of charismatic cult leader Lancaster Dodd, played by Creator/PhilipSeymourHoffman and his wife Peggy played by Creator/AmyAdams. From there on, the film becomes a character study between Dodd and Freddie as their relationship varies between "Leader and Follower", "Teacher and Student", "Father and Son" and "Master and Slave".
