Master acting but amateur indication of meaning.

For the first time since There Will Be Blood in 2007, Paul Thomas Anderson releases only his sixth feature to date. Following critical reception of his past films and being a director of quality over quantity, Anderson's latest film The Master was going to become an immediate lookout for Oscars.

I saw The Master with my best friend, and we’re both huge fans of Paul Thomas Anderson. It seemed like the perfect combination of events. I was with the right person to discuss the film with afterward, and we were both familiar with the director’s prior work so we knew what to expect. Except, we really didn’t, because after the film ended we just looked at each other trying to figure out wha... read more

Ever since I saw 'Boogie Nights', I have been faithfully following Paul Thomas Anderson's work. This time again, we had to wait 5 long years to see his new directing effort so my expectations were sky high and it was one of my top priorities concerning 2012 (behind 'The Dark Knigh Rises' and 'The Hobbit'). Unfortunately, it didn't live up to those expectations. I mean, it was really good, there we... read more

"28.1, Netflix Joaquin Phoenixin näyttely on jälleen huippuluokkaa ja tämän ja Herin ansiosta olen alkanut arvostamaan miestä suuresti. Myös Hoffman tekee hyvän roolin. Ohjaus on laadukasta ja rytmittäminen hienosti näyttelijöiden suorituksille tilaa antava, muttei sopinut katseluhetkellä mielentilaani. Sisällöllisestikään tämä ei tarjonnut tällä kertaa minulle mitään muuta kuin taitavaa elokuvantekoa, mutta suon tälle vielä uusintakatselun koska tiedän että tällä on p"

My Top 20 Films of All Time (20 movies items)

"In my opinion the best of Paul Thomas Anderson. It is a film that on multiple viewings I have grown to love and find something new to love. It also has two of the best performances in a film ever. Joaquin Phoenix and Phillip Seymour Hoffman both make these characters instant classics with special regards to Phoenix as Freddie Quell. The scene I chose shows off these two great transformation into these people. "

“I am glad I didn't fall for the temptation to download the movie and watched it in cinema (fuck you Norway for releasing this movie 6 months after premiere). The movie had some very nice visuals, and the camera is top notch! My eyes had an orgasm every scene.

The acting is nothing short of incredible. Phoenix is ten levels above outstanding, never seen acting like that, that man know how to improv. Hoffman and Amy are great as always.

The film was pumping with energy, I felt angry the whole film, I don't know why, but I wanted to punch something, just like Phoenix did several times in the movie. I felt his frustration in some scenes. And I understand that Hoffman suddenly yelled out of anger.

****SPOILERS MAYBE I THINK ( EVEN THO IT IS HARD TO SPOIL THIS MOVIE” read more

“Great performances from Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

I found interesting the relationship of mutual need. On one hand, someone who needs help to think and act with clarity. On the other, someone who believes that can help and heal.

The Master

“I saw The Master with my best friend, and we’re both huge fans of Paul Thomas Anderson. It seemed like the perfect combination of events. I was with the right person to discuss the film with afterward, and we were both familiar with the director’s prior work so we knew what to expect. Except, we really didn’t, because after the film ended we just looked at each other trying to figure out what we had just watched, hoping maybe the other one could give us some insight.

Months passed by, and we kept bringing it up, and eventually we decided that it was a film that doesn’t immediately strike you as something brilliant. It needs to crawl under your skin and live there for a little while as you absorb everything you’ve just seen and experienced. It doesn’t all add up neatly” read more

Unfortunately, it didn't live up to those expectations. I mean, it was really good, there were even some really brilliant moments but it was never truly amazing. In my opinion, the main issue was with the writing. Indeed, even though the two main characters were fascinating, the story didn't work very well and the whole thing was sometimes pretty random (f” read more

Surprisingly aimless

“I am a huge fan of P.T. Anderson--have been since I first saw There Will Be Blood and was further swayed by Magnolia. He has a hypnotic way of drawing you in and keeping your attention as things swirl out of control. And so when I saw previews for The Master, it only took me one look into Joaquin's manic gaze before I knew I had to see it.

"If you figure out a way to live without a master, any master, be sure to let the rest of us know, for you would be the first in the history of the world."

Joaquin Phoenix stars as Freddie Quell, the enigmatic troublemaker that stumbles his way into Lancaster Dodd's (Philip Seymour Hoffman) world, secret elixirs in-hand. But even here, so close to the beginning, we come to an impass: who is really the star of this film? Both actors g” read more

Following critical reception of his past films and being a director of quality over quantity, Anderson's latest film The Master was going to become an immediate lookout for Oscars. However, this is a very different project compared to his past works as it is a film for the audience to just observe and work out for themselves. Therefore The Master is not to everybody's taste. The film may feature absolutely fantastic Oscar-worthy performances from its ensemble cast and at least satisfactory direction from Anderson, but it is still a slight misfire.

Every great director of quality over quantity has made at least one feature for audiences to observe that expresses the ” read more
