The Master

The Master ★★★★★

Paul Thomas Anderson presents a fascinating look at religious and non-religious people in The Master and he does so with an absolute mastery (hehe) of the cinematic craft. I've wrote a fair bit about this film on this site, so feel free to search around for more of my opinion on what the film is about in other reviewers comment sections (or don't, that seems like too much work).

I will say that I was struck with a real sense of PSH's career after watching all of PTA's films so close together, and I don't think he PSH gives the same performance twice. He's doing unique things in each of the PTA films that he is in, and it is really like seeing a master class in how to perform on screen.
