The Master


Dir. Paul Thomas Anderson. 2012, 144 mins. 70mm. With Philip Seymour-Hoffman, Amy Adams, Joaquin Phoenix. Phoenix, Hoffman, and Adams all received Oscar nominations for their performances in Paul Thomas Anderson’s spellbinding saga of post–World War II America. Phoenix creates the unforgettable Freddie Quell, a wayward soul who falls under the spell of a spiritual guru (Philip Seymour-Hoffman in one of his greatest performances), who may or may not be a huckster. In this haunting drama, Anderson creates one mysterious, richly evocative image after another.
