Saw this movie a few days ago. It was painful. Thankfully it will be quickly forgotten in a few more days.

Watching this movie was analogous to watching an incredibly acted play, put on by Compagnie Marie Chouinard.

It's crazy to me how many people are salivating over this thing.

I LOVE MOVIES!!!!!!!!!!!!

I watched "The Master" last night on BD. Interesting film and I didn't realize that much of it had been shot around here including some stuff nearby at Crockett and Mare Island and Oakland standing in for New York. There's some interesting back story in one of the deleted scenes.

I plan to rent The Master from Redbox later this week. I liked it when I saw it in the theater but was far from blown away. The film is a highly accomplished work, which one would expect with Anderson directing and which stars Philip Seymour Hoffman. Still, I thought it cold and often unpleasant. Looking forward to seeing it again, though. There's always more there than meets the eye in any Paul Thomas Anderson film.

I am kinda torn about watching this one.
The subject matter doesn't really interest me.
If I was to watch it, it would be to see some of my favorite actors strut their stuff.

I'll update may assessment of The Master after I rent the BD from Redbox and see the film again. Along with Punch Drunk Love and Hard Eight, The Master is my least favorite Anderson movie. Still, all three have a lot going for them, far more than the average film. I don't think you would regret renting and watching The Master if for no other reason than to see real life movie masters operating at the top of their game.

As always, I'm late to the game, but I watched this last night and I found it, like all his stuff, strange but very compelling. The acting is about as good as it gets, and I definitely felt it. The characters are all very flawed and ambiguous in many of their motivations, which I think is always interesting. Joaquim was almost painfully into that character, and I felt he brought a huge amount of depth and pathos to it. He has always seemed to me to be very in touch with his inner self-loathing. If not, he's even an better actor than I thought.

It's not likely to be a regular rewatcher for me, but it's a very well done piece of work. And how many people can pull in that kind of talent on a project so far off the Hollywood standard playbook?

I got a copy to review and it's one of the few films I've seen where I love the acting, but disliked the film.

+1! Like you, I admired the performances but ended up not much liking the film, primarily because of the awful people it depicted. What a thoroughly deplorable bunch! I ended up giving The Master a rating of 7 Stars out of 10 but that was only because the high quality of its ensemble cast saved it from disaster. I saw the film in the theater because of my high regard for Paul Thomas Anderson's work. Alas, The Master, was far from his finest moment.

I felt the same. The acting was amazing in some areas, but everything else fell flat for me. I'm not the kind of movie lover that loves to try and guess at what the director is trying to convey, and I felt this movie was just that kind of film. In my opinion, if you have to read about things after you watch a movie, to be able to fully grasp the story, then the movie has failed. The Master just felt like I was watching a story that was missing the first act, along with some back story. It was kind of a mess for me.

I LOVE MOVIES!!!!!!!!!!!!
