The Master

The Master ★★★★★

a great example of how great a movie can be if you just make every scene great, even if you disregard the concept as a whole. Not that the larger concepts aren't fantastic, but PTA's films are all just a series of unassailably flawless scenes and sequences with perfect casts.

that being said, i still feel at odds with that final scene between the two of them. still waiting for that moment to click in my head what exactly they were going for. I get the emotion for the most part, just not sure altogether about the exchange.

one thing i noted this time around is just how amazing the extras all looked. it's so rare period dramas actually look the part and not like weird stylistic homages to the past.
