Has anyone seen The Master? I saw it last night. Wasn't sure if I liked it. Then this morning when I woke up I decided I did like it. Then I read this interview with Joaquin Phoenix and it made me smile. The movie was long. It was beautiful to look at on a big theater screen. Supposedly it's loosely based on Scientology. I think it's basically about the fact that we are animals with instincts and a conscience and that we're constantly searching and looking for some sort of answer to lead is out of darkness. Joaquin Phoenix was insanely great in his role as an alcoholic WW2 veteran wandering aimlessly and following his natural instincts.
Phillip Seymour Hoffman was his usual brilliant self. He plays a very charismatic egomaniac paranoid religious cult type leader. A flim flam man with a good heart and issues galore. So many layers.
I didn't love this film last night and now I can't stop thinking about it. Shiza Minelli I'm going crazy. Does this ever happen to you? Have you seen it? Did you hate amd then love it? Did you hayove it? Please tell me. I need answers.
