The Master

The Master ★★½

The first movie by Paul Thomas Anderson that I don't like. I have no idea what this movie was trying to be, but it clearly failed, at least in my eyes. The acting by PSH and Joaquin Phoenix is great, and the supporting cast is pretty good too, but their acting is in vain. There is no plot in this film. It feels empty. The characters don't change during the course of the movie. I admire PTA. The movie looks great and it has some nice ideas, but it's badly executed.
