Now I will watch The Master with Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, directed by Paul Thomas Anderson
it's Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman, the cast is perfection and it looks amazing. I definitely will watch it
Watching the movie The Master on show time with Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman very interesting movie and so profoundly sad that Philip Seymour Hoffman has passed. So talented and sad that we never truly know what is going on in others life's that resulted in a senseless tragedy. I guess we all need to be more compassionate and not judge people when we don't know all the facts that are going on in people's life's.
I just finished up watching "The Master." I bet the upper echelons of $cientology threw a party when they heard Philip Seymour Hoffman had died. I'm willing to bet there were church emails speculating that old L. Ron himself reached out from the cosmic ether and overloaded that last syringe for PSH. Great flick though. It's too bad for Joaquin Phoenix that Daniel Day Lewis decided to make a movie that year. Otherwise, I think he would have finally taken home an Oscar for that stellar and very creepy performance.
Watched "The Master". Convinced of three things: 1) Paul Thomas Anderson is ok with making things continually more and more difficult for his audience; 2) Philip Seymour Hoffman played the character that he could probably have only always been; 3) Joaquin Phoenix is pretty much the Best Actor that has ever been. Thanks, Casey Adam Hegg for talking to me about this film and why it is of value.
In my opinion, this movie has Joaquin Phoenix's and Philip Seymour Hoffman's best performances of their careers, respectively.
Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman working together aka the epitome of amazingness
I just saw a video of Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix laughing onset and I'm crying.
Apropos postings by various people on the movie THE MASTER, I thought some of you might find the following review interesting (or not?) The performance of the year! Anderson excels once again 12 September 2012 | by Clayton Davis The Master is absolutely magnetic, orchestrated brilliantly by writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson and helmed by the commanding turns of Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Anderson has never been a director that makes a film for everyone to enjoy. In the vein of auteur directors like Terrence Malick, David Lynch, and Michael Haneke, Anderson's films aren't necessarily the most accessible despite the seeming mainstream status. Films like Boogie Nights (1997), Magnolia (1999), and There Will Be Blood (2007) are reflective, tensional, studies of human behavior, all things that the average film-goer most of the time will not embrace. In The Master, Anderson constructs, absolutely magnificently I might add, two dynamic, real, and tangible men that the audience can both imagin ...
Finally got to sit down and watch The Master. Definitely won't be for everyone, but if you like well executed cinematography you should watch it. And also Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman are beyond amazing in it.
The Master on demand. Complex character brought to life by Philip Seymour Hoffman. Tormented soul exquisite by Joaquin Phoenix

"The Master" staring: Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams...weird *** movie. Good somehow , but Weird!
Family, actors mourn Philip Seymour Hoffman at private funeral: Family and close friends bid their final farewells on Friday at a private funeral for actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, whose tragic death of an apparent overdose at the age of 46 robbed the entertainment world of one of its finest talents. Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, Michelle Williams, Joaquin Phoenix, Mary Louise Parker and Chris Rock were among the Hollywood stars who attended the service at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola on Manhattan's Upper East Side to mourn the death of the Oscar-winning actor. Blanchett, who spoke at the funeral along with director Paul Thomas Anderson, braved the cold in a long black coat as the hearse bearing Hoffman's coffin pulled away from the church on Park Avenue. She declined to comment as tears streamed down her face. New York director and screenwriter Amos Poe said the funeral "was beautiful, just like Phil." Many of the actors at the service had worked with Hoffman. Williams lost her former ...
Stars Flock to Philip Seymour Hoffman's Private Funeral Philip Seymour Hoffman's private funeral was held in Manhattan on Friday, with stars Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Ethan Hawke, Brian Dennehey, Amy Adams and Ellen Burstyn paying their respects to an actor widely considered among the best of his generation. The coffin holding Hoffman's body was brought out of the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola by pallbearers and put it a hearse, and family and guests began to stream out Friday afternoon.

Cate Blanchett, Amy Adams, Joaquin Phoenix and Diane Sawyer are among the celebrities attending Philip Seymour Hoffman's wake.
It would seem that at the moment, Joaquin Phoenix is drawn to stories of oddball relationships. Last year, he found himself entwined with Philip Seymour Hoffman in a father/son, mentor/master union as part of Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master." And a year later he's back, this time romancing the vo...
Vimeo's Richard Trammell wondered what the trailer for Spike Jonze's HER would be like if the operating system that befriends Joaquin Phoenix is voiced by Philip Seymour Hoffman, using audios/lines from Hoffman's other movies like Along Came Polly...
two films: just watched Terence Malick's wonderful 'Days Of Heaven', difficult to think that I haven't seen it before but there you are last night saw 'The Master' by Paul Thomas Anderson, terrific performances from Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Difficult not to think of Scientology with its peculiarly American mix of mumbo jumbo, naivety and hard sell promotion
Watching The Master...an hour in&every 5 minutes think it can't get any weirder...it does!. A Philip Seymour Hoffman & Joaquin Phoenix epic
The Master (2012): a gripping, absorbing film about the birth of a cult. Philip Seymour Hoffman & Joaquin Phoenix are superb.
Joaquin Phoenix is mesmerising. Philip Seymour Hoffman is indescribably compelling.
Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman are on mesmerising form in P. T. Anderson’s award winning drama The Master 9.45pm Premiere/HD
Never heard of "The Master", but watched it last night--Philip Seymour Hoffman was great, but I thought Joaquin Phoenix was incredible!
my relationship with Jared is basically the same Joaquin Phoenix has with Philip Seymour Hoffman in The Master
The Master was a truly interesting movie. I loved it, Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman are both terrific actors
And also Joaquin Phoenix & Philip Seymour Hoffman's performances are gold. The best of their career.
watching the Master again. brilliant film, exceptional acting. Joaquin Phoenix & Philip Seymour Hoffman are a directors dream.
Have I ever said that Philip Seymour Hoffman is ah-ma-zing. I love him. Joaquin Phoenix is also killin' it in this movie.
"The Master" is so painful to watch, but Amy Adams, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Joaquin Phoenix all put in stunning performances
About to watch with Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix.it's a slapstick comedy right?
A Naval veteran arrives home from war unsettled and uncertain of his future - until he is tantalized by "The Cause" and its charismatic leader. Acting power house, Joaquin Phoenix makes a welcome return to serious film making, with Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Great film and briliant performances for Joaquin Phoenix & Philip Seymour Hoffman.see you all there
Lost over 2 hours of my life last night and stayed up way too late for church this morning watching "The Master". Great performances by Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix, but otherwise, meh. One of those movies that the critics lapped up, but an average Joe (or Mark) just kinda scratches his head waiting for something to happen. If you've seen it and you want to take a shot at explaining it to me, I look forward to being edified.
Incredible performances by Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman. (watching The Master)
Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman in Paul Thomas Anderson&THE MASTER. New Sardine Liqueur is being served.
Watched "the Master" completely bizarre! Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix amazing performances
Maaan, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix are such good actors. So surprised the latter has never won an oscar.
Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman are so good in it! I love both of them so much. Also the soundtrack is flawless~
The Master - great cast with Philip Seymour Hoffman & Joaquin Phoenix. Salted popcorn. Water. Settee. Missus. Belly full of my lemon chicken
I'm so confused. I thought Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix were playing in The Masters?
Watched 'The Master', a powerful, utterly unique film. Joaquin Phoenix manages the amazing feat of acting as well as Philip Seymour Hoffman.
is incredible. Built on performances, specifically Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Class acts & unparalleled actors.
Watched yesterday. Utterly brilliant, the acting is superb by Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman...
As usual, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix deliver tour de force performances, but the subject matter is just creepy as ***
Random thought: Some of my favorite actors: Joaquin Phoenix, Anthony Quinn, Sidney Poitier, Burt Lancaster, and Philip Seymour Hoffman
Joaquin Phoenix & Philip Seymour Hoffman - Staring into their faces for hours. Nuanced Perceptive Universal truly is: PT Anderson
Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman are superb. The film itself is too long but I'm beginning to think that was the point.
W/C 11th March 2013 Four new titles this week. TWILIGHT: BREAKING DAWN Part 2 is the final part of the teen vampire romance saga. THE TALL MAN, starring Jessica Biel, tells of a mother searching for her missing child and investigates the legend of a tall man who abducts children. THE MASTER is an award winning drama starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix and is about a troubled US war veteran who seeks salvation from a cult leader. Finally, a comedy, FUN SIZE, in which a girl whose plans to go to her high school ball are scuppered when she has to look after her younger brother, but who then goes missing.
Joaquin Phoenix was awesome The Master. This was a great film because he carried it. Philip Seymour Hoffman was masterful.
Joaquin Phoenix, Paul Thomas Anderson, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, & The Master all got robbed at the Oscars.
Watched 2 critically acclaimed movies this weekend. The first was "The Master"', with Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Both, along with Amy Adams, were nominated for Academy Awards. Phoenix, plays an alcoholic vet who meets a man (Hoffman) who's starting a "new age" moment, similar to an Edgar Cayce. That's about it, the movie, as far as i can see had no plot, nor was it helpful to the "Gwell" character. The most interesting part of the movie was the extent that the Phoenix character would go to to get drunk. I didn't know you could get high AND LIVE by literally drinking rocket fuel, turpentine, paint thinner and cleaning products. It's amazing what the body can process.even the Hoffman character joined in. "Can you make that stuff again?" "sure, or something like it".pass the lighter fluid and limes, for that special margarita.
Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman & Amy Adams were all Oscar nominees. Now you can win 'The Master' on Blu-ray:
Whoa. Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman are stunning in The Master. But sitting through that movie is not an experience I'm eager to repeat. I seriously want to call up Joaquin right now and make sure he's, like, eating enough and getting out for some air. Geez.
yeah, Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman were great but the movie was seriously flawed
Amazing how Philip Seymour Hoffman can take a performance as brilliant as Joaquin Phoenix's and take such a swift dump on it.
Tried to watch the new Anna Karenina last week. Unfortunately, someone had a concept. Then watched Master with Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix. Wonderful acting, but to what purpose, I don't know. But, hey, Argo was good.
Just saw "The Master". How can one movie, with three incredible performances by Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams & Joaquin Phoenix, be so utterly boring?
watching The Master right now w/Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Wow! Once again (i.e., Gladiator), Joaquin P was robbed of the best Supporting Actor Oscar!

Watching The Master. Great acting my Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman but I wish I gave up on it an hour ago
I'm a Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix fan so I think I will give it a view...
Watched "The Master" last night. Philip Seymour Hoffman as cult leader, Joaquin Phoenix as troubled follower. Bizarre, original with great performances and music.
Just watched 'The Master' (nod to Scientology) with Joaquin Phoenix & Philip Seymour Hoffman..enjoyed it a lot
Just finished watching Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master", a character study on the molding of a broken man into a loyal acolyte by a charismatic cult leader. The beginnings of the Cause (the name of the cult in the fim) parallels that of the birth of Scientology in many ways. The film moves very slow but viewers are sure to be captivated by strong performances from Joaquin Phoenix (the follower) and Philip Seymour Hoffman (the master). Anderson has directed 6 feature films so far (all very good) but these works speak of the budding master filmmaker in him.
To anyone who wants to watch a modern classic, watch THE MASTER. It was nominated for three acting Oscars this year, and in my opinion should have been nominated for many others. Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman give two of the best performances you will likely ever see. However, the film is mature, challenging, and is open to interpretation, and many people hated or didn't understand the film because of this. But if you're willing to think and can admire the beauty of film in general, this is a must watch. Hopefully you will read this and watch it as soon as possible.
FIFTEEN GOMORRAH Neo Italian Neo-Realism...about the Camorra...2 1/2 hours of corruption and killing...almost entirely in an Italian housing project...totally brilliant!!!+++ ! REDACTED Brian De Palma's faux horrific documentary pastiche of US occupation forces in Iraq...so horrible to watch that I could not watch...and if I could not watch the reenactment of a very real rape and cover-up then maybe, just maybe...we shouldn't be there.One of the greatest movies that I couldn't watch... !+++ THE DEAD INSIDE How does one describe adequately a tender, sad, musical zombie-parody ghost tragedy...? Not easily...but I liked it plenty...I felt bewildered and a little bit of heartache...pretty songs...my only caveat is the song lyrics needed some serious editing and I only say this because they could have been great... !++ THE MASTER Enigmatic, brilliant...Paul Thomas Anderson.brilliant again...Joaquin Phoenix was explosive...Amy Adams always first rate...Philip Seymour Hoffman charismatic... !+
Watched Master last night. Though Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman were terrific (as were all the actors but one), not worth watching. Dull, boring.
Paul Thomas Anderson’s astounding epic starring Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman, follows an ex-naval officer and his exploration of a mysterious cult known only as ‘the cause’
Watched three (newer) films recently courtesy of Redbox... End of Watch is badass beginning to end and I really dug the cinematography. The Master is a bit odd and a slow burn, but Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman were each fantastic. Here Comes the Boom, with Kevin James, had maybe handful of funny parts, but it's major downfall was being named after a POD song.
Wow.. Just wow to Joaquin Phoenix' performance in Philip Seymour Hoffman was also perfectly cast. What a trip.
Just finished 'The Master'. Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman continue to be two of the finest actors on this planet.
When will Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman finally get an Oscar?!
Watching The Master...one if the few movies I really wanted to see in the theater, but didn't get a chance to...PT Anderson is one if my favorite directors and Joaquin Phoenix & Philip Seymour Hoffman are 2 of my favorite actors...and Amy Adams is pretty good, too.
An all-star cast including Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix & Amy Adams. is now available On Demand
I would watch "The Master" despite Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix.
'The Master' Paul Thomas Anderson's latest film with Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix is out today
It's the day after the Oscar's so that means gift bags are being delivered today! Thrilled to be able to give a print of my work to Bradley Cooper, Hugh Jackman, Denzel Washington, Joaquin Phoenix, Jessica Chastain, Emmanuelle Riva, Naomi Watts, Quvenshané Wallis, Alan Arkin, Robert De Niro, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Tommy Lee Jones, Amy Adams, Sally Field, Helen Hunt, Jacki Weaver, Michael Haneke, Benh Zeitlin, David O. Russell, Seth Macfarlane and Steven Spielberg! What an amazing group of talented individuals. Congrats to all on their fantastic work.
one day left for oscars. so my choice (some changes from last time) 1. Best Actor ( m very confsed in this. after watching movies again and again i have these three priorities) a. daniel day-lewis, lincoln b. Joaquin Phoenix ,the master c. Denzel Washington , flight 2. best movie a. lincoln b. argo 3. best actress- jessica chestain 4. Best Actor in supporting role Philip Seymour Hoffman , the master 5 best director ang lee for Life Of Pie. 6, best writng and screenplay Quentin Tarantino you know what i have also watched all the animated movies of this year also... 7. best animated movie brave(and its for sure) 8. Best Foreign Language Film of the Year amour(hey man come on. no one can beat it) 9.achievement in cinematography Life Of Pie
My thoughts so far on some of the Oscar-nominated films and performances -- Beasts of the Southern Wild -- Very different story. Glad to see a small film like this getting some attention. Little QuoqWallace is a cutie-pie. Flight -- Eh. Wasn't really impressed. Didn't need to see Denzel debasing himself like that. The whole thing was a bit populist for my taste. Life Of Pi -- Beautifully shot, but the narrative was uneven. Too many twists and turns in the last 3rd. Argo -- Solid film. Should win best pic. Lincoln -- dry, but solid & hearty (kinda like Wheat Thins). The Master -- Good Lord, Almighty. What is this? Wonderful performances by Joaquin Phoenix & Philip Seymour Hoffman, but Amy Adams? She was nominated for... standing around near actors who had Oscar-worthy performances, I guess. Still deconstructing that bit of filmmaking. Also flossing out my brain. On the docket for today -- Les Mis & Django. May not get to Zero Dark Thirty. Tomorrow's my Superbowl Sunday, in case there was any confusion.
So I totally wasted over 2 hours watching 'The Master.' Great performances by Joaquin Phoenix & Philip Seymour Hoffman can't save that turd
The Master is a masterpiece, I must watch it again. Joaquin Phoenix (must win), Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams all deserve Oscars!
I have seen all 9 pictures nominated for Best Picture. My preference is Silver Linings Playbook even though Bradley Cooper Jennifer Lawrence is not the ideal couple. I go for Abe Lincoln as Best Actor. I go for Jennifer Lawrence as best actress and Sally Field as Best Supporting Actress. Best Supporting Actor sees my vote for Christolph Waltz. 2012 was a better year for the movies by a long shot than the 2 previous years in my opinion. I give honorable mention to Argo, Philip Seymour Hoffman and kudos to Bradley Cooper, Joaquin Phoenix and Jacki Weaver.
I watched Paul Thomas Anderson's latest flick last night, it has Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix.
Short review of The Master: Good movie, REALLY slow at times but the scenes with Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman talking together were very good. Both deserve the Oscar nominations. Rest of the movie can be hit or miss. It is an interesting idea and concept but I think the execution could have been better. 7.5/10
I want Django Unchained to sweep the Oscars, for Tony Kushner to win for Best Adapted Screenplay. As spectacular as Daniel Day-Lewis's performance in LINCOLN was, Joaquin Phoenix was brilliant in THE MASTER, and he's never won an Oscar while Day-Lewis has won two. Split the Supporting Actor Oscar between Philip Seymour Hoffman and Christoph Waltz. And, since Samantha Barks wasn't nominated for Best Supporting Actress for Les Miserables, then NO ONE should win in that category.
Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman give powerful performances in the master review at
Screened "The Master". In short: excellent performances by Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman. As a movie? meh...
Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman's acting in The Master is 2 of the greatest acting performances in film history
Also The Master is finally online. BluRay quality. Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman... I'm ready for you.
Photos. Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman break character on the set of THE MASTER.
Note to self: Never watch another movie with Joaquin Phoenix in it cos he's the worst actor ever (except for Walk The Line) even if your favorite actor, Philip Seymour Hoffman is in it!
Anyone keen for the movie "The Master" at 8:30 on friday night. It shows at Darwin cinema. It has Philip Seymour Hoffman playing a cult leader and Joaquin Phoenix playing his right-hand man.
Special thanks to The Weinstein Company and Anchor Bay, I'm currently watching Paul Thomas Anderson's masterpiece, THE MASTER, on Blu-Ray. Fascinating story with mind-blowing performances. Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Philip Seymour Hoffman. THE MASTER will hit the stores in Blu-Ray and DVD combo pack on February 26, 2013
I was very excited when we finally got back to our hotel last night to see that the movie "the Master" was available for purchase in our room. David said he didn't mind so I purchased it. Please someone to me why this stinko movie would have ANY Oscar nominations. I understand why it's not being shown in Theatres. The theatre owners still have to be reeling from the stench of it's first run. Joaquin Phoenix is weird (as usual). Philip Seymour Hoffman is wired and Amy Adams left me wondering what her people are thinking for allowing her to participate. This is the biggest waste of film and talent and time that I have EVER seen in anything that the Academy would associate itself with. STINKY movie of the year. If you've seen it (1 of the 200 people who did) and have a different opinion or even an understanding of the movie PLEASE give me some insight so I won't feel like I totally wasted 2 hours and 15 bucks.
thechosenjuan: Paul Thomas Anderson, Joaquin Phoenix, and Philip Seymour Hoffman behind the scenes of The Mas…
The Master was excellent! Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman never disappoint.
It´s very strange that PT Anderson´s The Master has not yet surfaced on piratebay. I´m dying to see what the fuzz is about. Apparently, Joaquin Phoenix gives the performance of a lifetime and Philip Seymour Hoffman is equally good. It opens theatrically in Sweden tomorrow so i guess i´ll see it there.
Sorry but I enjoyed Philip Seymour Hoffman's performance in "The Master" much, much better! The only thing memorable about Tommy Lee Jones' performance in "Lincoln" was the wig! And I love the actor!
PTA sendo o diretor foda que é, fez outro filme sensacional. Triste que o Joaquin Phoenix perdeu/perderá all the awards pro DDL, ele tá sensacional. Philip Seymour Hoffman dando aula e todas as interações entre os dois é de deixar nego na ponta da cadeira. "If you figure out a way to live without a master, any master, be sure to let the rest of us know, for you would be the first in the history of the world".
Joaquin Phoenix delivers a performance of lifetime & he is matched by Philip Seymour Hoffman. Great roles.. GREAT performances.
Great acceptance speech: Joaquin Phoenix – Actor of the Year, "The Master" (written message): "I struggle with the idea of winning awards for acting. Stating I'm Best Actor for something as subjective as film seems strange to me. To the uninitiated it implies I'm solely responsible for the creation and implementation of the character. I am not. I suppose that's why we thank our colleagues. There are those who you all know such as Paul Thomas Anderson, to whom I am eternally grateful – a man who has persistently searched for the truth. I am fortunate to have been under his guidance. Philip Seymour Hoffman for his patience and advice. Amy Adams for being angry. Megan Ellison and everyone at Annapurna for their support of the film and ensuring that I was able to cover my mortgage. But there are many others who you do not know by name such as Mike Kenna, who I believe was the grip but he did 20 different jobs so I can't be sure; Adam Somner, the first assistant director; Karen Ramirez in the office; Tommy ...
The Master is a masterpiece. With Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix who deserves an Oscar. Score is perfect.
London Critics' Circle Awards: Joaquin Phoenix & Philip Seymour Hoffman // Actor of the Year & Supporting Actor of the Year
The Master Blu-ray and DVD Debut February 26th: Philip Seymour Hoffman and Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix star in...
reckons that it's been a long time since I've seen an actor so fully immerse himself in a part as Joaquin Phoenix in THE MASTER - not just delivering a superb performance, but disappearing completely into the character! Yes, Philip Seymour Hoffman is as consummate as always, in a flashier role, but, for me, the eye-opening performance is that of Phoenix - if it were up to me, I would give him an Oscar! Alas, the current hype would seem to indicate that they're going to give it to Daniel Day-Lewis again - I'm probably being quite unfair here, since I haven't yet seen LINCOLN, and I'm certainly not denying the latter's brilliance, but to give him an Oscar everytime he makes a new movie every 5 years or so, becomes a tad predictably excessive! Oh, and I thought Amy Adams was also excellent, giving an intriguing, layered performance, in a supporting role - I would be happy to see her awarded as Supporting Actress, but I suspect that will go to Anne Hathaway. Whatever the case, I'm already eagerly anticipating ...
Oscar nominees Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams and Philip Seymour Hoffman star in THE MASTER, playing thru Thursday! Shows today at 4:30+7:30.
Glad to see Les Miserables nominated for Best Picture, and Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress. Fellow Oscar nominees include Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, and Tommy Lee Jones for Lincoln, and for various other films (most of which I have not seen), Christoph Waltz, Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Naomi Watts, Jessica Chastain, Helen Hunt, Denzel Washington, Robert De Niro, and Amy Adams.
Not a great week with this flu, but getting there. Just going through the list of Oscar nominees and I met a few on the list. Joaquin Phoenix, Alan Arkin, Robert DeNiro, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Sally Field, Helen Hunt. Mychael Danna, who did the music for Life Of Pi, David Silverman, who directed the Simpsons short, Quintin Tarantino and Seth MacFarland, who sang in Ted, the song up for an Oscar. Not to mention Yann Martel, who wrote Life Of Pi. Both he and Danna are both Canadian. Michael was won awards at the Genie awards. I met him once a few years ago.
If Joaquin Phoenix doesn't win Best Actor and Philip Seymour Hoffman doesn't win Best Supporting Actor then I'm never going to buy a movie on dvd ever again.
The Academy Awards Nominations have been posted. Lincoln has the most nominations with 12. Django Unchained is nominated for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor - Christoph Waltz, Best Original Screenplay - Quentin Tarantino, Best Cinematography - Robert Richardson, and Best Sound Editing - Wylie Stateman! I knew Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman would be nominated for The Master. A little upset that The Master was not nominated for Best Cinematography, oh well.
If "Lincoln" wins Best Picture, I will be disappointed. Also, I came away floored by Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix when I saw "The Master", but three months later I still have no idea what the *** the movie is about.
Top 10 BIGGEST Oscar nomination shockers (please look up the nominations before reading this): 10. The Exclusion of Sci-Fi Films Reason: Only one nominee for The Avengers and Prometheus and The Dark Knight Rises, Cloud Atlas and Looper were all SNUBBED. Come on Oscars! Good or bad: VERY BAD 9. The Master’s SLIGHT comeback Reason: I knew Philip Seymour Hoffman would get the nomination, but when I saw Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams names listed, that made it more worthwhile. Too bad Harvey couldn’t score P.T Anderson a nomination. :( Good or bad: GOOD 8. The Perks of Being a Wallflower’s screenplay snub Reason: Knowing it was gaining momentum with the Writers Guild and Critics Choice nomination, I thought it had a really good chance. Apparently not. Good or bad: BAD 7. Flight’s screenplay nom Reason: I know it did get other nominations as well, but I seriously thought it couldn’t get past The Master or Looper. Well done, John Gatins. Good or bad: GOOD 6. The Pirates! Band of Misfits scoring a Best ...

We split on THE MASTER. Paul Thomas Anderson's cult-founding opus is purposefully perplexing, and that will leave most mainstream audiences cold. But no one can argue superb work from Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, Laura Dern -- and strong production design, cinematography and a score that haunts you.
Saw 'the master' last night. Philip Seymour Hoffman is truly a great actor... He has all the tools ,but Joaquin Phoenix ... He's the new standard.. I was always aware of Hoffman acting but Phoenix dissolved into the role. He was just being. A true great. The movie itself was ok. It was an actors study piece...
Went to see "The Master" in the IFI. Brilliant performances by Joaquin Phoenix & Philip Seymour Hoffman
This afternoon I took a 20-minute walk down Wilshire Bl. to the Laemmle Beverly Hills and saw "The Master". I had high expectations. They were saying that Philip Seymour Hoffman plays an L. Ron Hubbard-type in it. The movie actually stars Joaquin Phoenix as a disturbed man who cannot function in society. I kept waiting for a story. You know, where something significant happens. Maybe we can give Joaquin a nomination for Best Actor and Philip Seymour a nomination for Best Supporting Actor, but I doubt that they could win against "Skyfall's" Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem.
I saw The Master yesterday. Loved it. Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman deserve to split the Academy Award for Best Actor.
That's me back from seeing The Master at the Glasgow Film Theatre. A strange, difficult film. Not quite sure if I liked it or not. Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman both give powerhouse performances, however.
Film review: The Master (4 out of 5 stars). Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman in The M...
you're in for a treat. Both Joaquin phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman deserve Oscars
Amy Adams, Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman? That sounds like a Master combo! Read our review
I went to see the master. Good movie. Enjoyed it. Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix Were outstanding together
The Master: what an utterly compelling movie that is. Stunningly photographed and beautifully scored by Jonny Greenwood with masterful performances from Philip Seymour Hoffman and (surely bagging an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor) Joaquin Phoenix
Philip Seymour Hoffman was brilliant, but Joaquin Phoenix was just fantastic. How has Joaquin Phoenix not got an Oscar yet??
Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman tore up any scene they were in, together or apart.
The Master is worth seeing purely to be immersed in the exquisite interplay between Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Diverting.
Philip Seymour Hoffman, amazing actor, Joaquin Phoenix, amazing actor (see Walk The Line) but The Master? Not an amazing film...
Really enjoyed The Master! The relationship between Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman on screen is superb. Highly recommended!
Just saw The Master, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix are sensational
Paul Thomas Anderson's THE MASTER defies easy appraisal as much as it does categorisation. It will take much thought and several further viewings to establish what it may all add up to, but I know for certain that it is the most original, the most challenging, the most innovative, the most confounding, the most constantly mesmerising film of the year. It will surely also be the most divisive, but for me, it may be the best American film since THE TREE OF LIFE and possibly Anderson's own There Will Be Blood. Philip Seymour Hoffman is in spectacularly pugnacious form whilst Joaquin Phoenix seems transformed from the inside out, a painfully contorted jumble of nervous energy and simmering volatility. It is a performance, if one can even think of it in such prosaic terms, that recalls Brando in LAST TANGO IN PARIS or De Niro in TAXI DRIVER. The film may present more questions than it provides answers, but in an age where true cultural giants are so rare to emerge, this all but confirms that Anderson is not on ...
2012's Best: Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman doing first interview in "The Master"...
Coming from the DGA after the Screening of The Master, followed by a great Q&A with the great director fo the film Paul Thomas Anderson! Again Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman did an amazing performance!
WATCH: Wilf reviews the new PT Anderson film, The Master. Starring starring Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
It's Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman. A sort of pseudo Scientology tale.
Finally got to see Just an incredible journey. Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman were amazing!
Just came back from seeing the Master. Really good film. Beautifully shot on 70mm and Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman give amazing performances
Just back from watching The Master. Unbelievably good acting from Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman!
The Master is an extremely well acted film - Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix are incredible in this film by Paul Thomas Anderson. The Master is disturbing and moving at the same time - a quality film that will challenge you and make you think. The Master is the power of movies - experienced on the big screen - at its best.
Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix star in "The Master," now playing at Landmark Encore. Visit landmarkcinemas.com for show times.
I just saw a movie that was both butt numbing and mind numbing. It was about total morons getting sucked in to doing stupid things by a fraudulent megalomaniac. No it wasn't Compliance or The Iron Lady, it was Paul Thomas Anderson's, The Master. I'm now four for four with Anderson, I've hated every film of his I've seen. Hey, if I want to see stupid people blindly believing what they are told by idiotic charlatans, I don't need to go to the movies, I could just watch FOX News. The Master was over acted, over dramatized, over filmed, over scored and if it wasn't for the incredibly cute Rami Malek (What eyes! What an *** ) as Philip Seymour Hoffman's son in law Clark, I would have walked out. What happened to Joaquin Phoenix? Did he have a stroke and I just didn't hear about it? Why was he only talking out of half of his face? Once again, I'm afraid my inappropriate laughter at the wrong moments annoyed other patrons, but when Hoffman started singing Slow Boat To China to Phoenix at the finale, I c ...
I could watch Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman do mind games in the bottom of a boat for hours.
"The Master" was slow going at first, but evolved into an intriguing film. Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix were great.
I wanna see "The Master", Paul Thomas Anderson is Guinness and I adore Joaquin Phoenix & Philip Seymour Hoffman work as well
Finally saw THE MASTER. Great movie. Joaquin Phoenix is freaking amazing one-on-one with Philip Seymour Hoffman.
They may as well go ahead and give Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman their oscars for The Master
*** :( it is great though. Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman are both fantastic
Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman put on master clinics in acting in The Master, but Phoenix is phenomenal.
You MUST go see the new movie "The Master." Just an AMAZING film with great performances by all involved...especially Joaquin Phoenix. He transforms himself so fully into his character that it's chilling! He has to get an Oscar for this one. Philip Seymour Hoffman does an outstanding job, also...but when does he not! Amy Adams is also excellent in the film. A surprising change from her usual "cute" roles. Again, please see this film if you can.
Now my favourite Joaquin Phoenix film is The Master. And the best Philip Seymour Hoffman film for me is SYNECDOCHE, New York.
Saw "The Master" on Friday. Masterful performances by Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Finally saw the Master last night. Very impressed Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix!
Movie review: "The Master". The critics seem to rave about this Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix film but I thought it was one of the stupidest and weirdest things I've ever seen on film. Don't waste your money. Wait for Netflix or satellite/cable. 2 1/2 hours of weird. Whoever made this up was drinking some of the same stuff that Joaquin Phoenix was drinking in the movie.
Incredible performances in 'The Master' by Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Paul Thomas Anderson is a master of unease.
Though the ending of The Master was completely botched, the acting throughout was absolutely amazing. Philip Seymour Hoffman plays a cult leader all too well, and Joaquin Phoenix gives a performance that would have made Marlon Brando green with envy. Definitely worth watching.
Btw...don't waste your money on "The Master". Having a deep interest in cults, and highly respecting both main actors, I thought this would be right up my alley but it turned out to be pretty tedious virtually the whole way through. I'm a cheapskate but I still would have walked out on this one but I didn't want to imposed that on Cher. After the movie she agreed she would have done the same. It's possible that both Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman saw this lean story line as a character study and therefore, a true acting challenge...and it was. Although they are both experts in their craft and were truly engaging in this film...that alone wasn't enough to carry this flick.
Saw "The Master" and "Looper" this weekend. The Master is a tour de force of acting with the great Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix. The story is a bit convoluted but I enjoyed watching these two Academy Award winning actors practice their craft in several intense emotion packed scenes. I'm betting Joaquin Phoenix takes honors for Best Actor early next year. Looper is excellent Science Fiction. Plan on some major mental gymnastics while you connect the dots to follow the plot of this movie. I enjoyed it. Kudos to the makeup people for making Joseph Gordon Levitt appear to resemble a young Bruce Willis. Levitt helps by actually sounding like Willis.
Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman in THE MASTER ... the kind of performances that make us actors want to aim for their brilliance.
Philip Seymour Hoffman stars as the founder of a religious organization, reportedly similar to Scientology, opposite Joaquin Phoenix.
My review of The Master: Amy Adams, surprisingly creepy; Philip Seymour Hoffman, creepy as expected; Joaquin Phoenix, off-the-charts aggro.
Went to the movies today and saw "The Master." TERRIBLE MOVIE! The only reason to see it is Joaquin Phoenix's brilliant turn as a shell-shocked WWII survivor, gaunt and crazed, trapped in the spell of a self-proclaimed mystic (Philip Seymour Hoffman) who is a cross between L. Ron Hubbard and Edgar Cayce. If Phoenix does not finally win the Academy Award for this role, something is wrong with the voting system.
Just watched The Master Long but worth it. Both Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman were INCREDIBLE!
Argo opens here today. Also heard that 'The Master' was an acting clinic for Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix. May c it.
Anytime I get to see Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman in the same movie, I am a happy woman.
Watched "The MAster" what great performances by Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
.reviews The Master, starring Joaquin Phoenix in his “finest performance” yet
Just saw the new Paul Thomas Anderson film, "The Master" with my brother Jeff. Joaquin Phoenix is pretty much a lock for an Oscar nom, and maybe even Philip Seymour Hoffman too. And the film itself was great! :-)
transfixed by Joaquin Phoenix & Philip Seymour Hoffman in - Powerful exploration of notions of Charisma, Leader, Follower, Cult
Did anybody else see the New Movie "THE MASTER" with Philip Seymour Hoffman,Joaquin Phoenix. The soundtrack...
Saw movie "The Master." That's some bold filmmaking. Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix are terrific.
I'm picturing the new Peanuts movie with Philip Seymour Hoffman as Charlie Brown and Joaquin Phoenix as Snoopy
Joaquin Phoenix returns to acting with a electrifying role that's Oscar worthy.
I thought I could watch Philip Seymour Hoffman's hardworking, intelligent face forever, but 2 hours into his seduction of Joaquin Phoenix in The Master, I began to feel I was trapped in an endless acting seminar. The fact that the only point of social relevance is Scientology only made the whole thing more Hollywood-insular.
I love weird, obscure, psychological movies. I love Philip Seymour Hoffman. I love Joaquin Phoenix. And I even love Amy Adams. But that movie Master was a little out there, even for me. It will probably win all the awards.
Paul Thomas Anderson's is a masterpiece- both Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman are sublime. Expect Oscars galore.
Saw "The Master" last night, wow! Compelling story and great acting, I'm thinking Oscar nominations for Joaquin Phoenix. And Philip Seymour Hoffman is awesome as the creepy cult leader.
Saw The Master with Philip Seymour Hoffman & Joaquin Phoenix. Interesting plot and fantastic acting but a little too long and tortured for me. Learned something new - in addition to his impressive acting, Hoffman can sing!
As cliche as it sounds...the film "The Master" is Masterful !!.acting by entire cast.great!! especially Joaquin Phoenix.no doubt and Oscar nod.the brilliant Philip Seymour Hoffman is once again teamed with director/writer Paul Thomas Anderson ("Boogie Nights") both will also be in the Oscar mix.just great !!
Just got back from the movies. Saw "The Master". Powerful, powerful performances by Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Academy Award winning performances, in my opinion. Problem is, I don't know whether I liked the movie or not. It was very odd.
Saw The Master tonight, and in the interest of saving you all nine bucks, here's a quick summary. Joaquin Phoenix apparently has a stroke while serving in the navy, learns to make semi-lethal moonshine, and follows Philip Seymour Hoffman/L. Ron Hubbard on a meandering trip across the U.S. where absolutely nothing happens. All while doing his best Ed Grimley imitation. Hated it...
Howard and I saw 'The Master' tonight- disturbing and bizarre, but brilliant performances by Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Just saw Master with Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman. This film deserves all kinds of Oscars. And I...
The Master w Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix, and Amy Adams. Does screenplay and acting get any better than this?
Be serious. Just don't be Philip Seymour Hoffman or Joaquin Phoenix serious.
I'm pretty sure Daniel Day-Lewis is the only person who could overtake Philip Seymour Hoffman or Joaquin Phoenix for Best Actor.
(Spoiler Alert!) THE MASTER is a film of such dazzling, sustained, and rigrous cinematic ambitons that it's one of those things that make you believe movies really aren't dead, at least not as long as brilliant visionaries like Paul Thomas Anderson can still practice their craft. Combining elements of his masterwork There Will Be Blood and his earlier hit Boogie Nights, THE MASTER is another veiled history of America that explores a huckster's rise along with the postwar death of religion, and, like the earlier flm, focuses on a troubled wanderer (Joaquin Phoenix) who joins in with an eccentric family headed by an artist/philosopher/guru (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and details their consequent oedipal struggle. As well, their final scene together suggests a mystical *** attraction and alliance. Even more ambiguous, the final shot suggests that it was all a tortured dream of a path to sexual maturity. There hasn't been a film as demanding as THE MASTER since the auteur heyday of the '70s. By framing the f ...
Studio set up a screening of "The Master" this afternoon for me...I'm excited to see this one...its a Paul Thomas Anderson joint and stars Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman...loosely based on Scientology stuff..
watched "The Master"... it's slow and intense, not for everybody! I enjoyed Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman's performances and the plot...two thumbs up to Paul Thomas Anderson!! Go watch 65mm film in theaters!
The Maser--interesting film but tries too hard. Philip Seymour Hoffman is one of the premiere, most versatile actors of our day but he just isn;'t convincing as The Master-- supposedly L. Ron Hubbard. Never see what makes man tick. Joaquin Phoenix just emotes all over the place. Never see any depth to his character. Excising 20-30 min from the flick, addming more character development & it might work. I give it one thumb up, maybe 2 1/2-3 out of 5 stars.
I saw "The Master" the other day, featuring the two great actors Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix. I was disappointed.
holy crap was good! great performances. well done (as always) Philip Seymour Hoffman, and welcome back, Joaquin Phoenix! :)
"The Master" was another interesting yet wonderful film. I left with lots of thoughts and a few questions. Was super excited to see Joaquin Phoenix back, and in brilliant action! He was magnificent in this film, as was Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Movie Review: “The Master” Is worth seeing for the performance by Joaquin Phoenix; tortured and free spirited at the same time. Amy Adams and Philip Seymour Hoffman are very good as well. The cinematography is exceptional. The music is quirky and will be distracting to some, but it added to the aura of madness that I felt was appropriate. If you want a neatly buttoned up plot with a neat set up and a neat ending, don’t see this film. I enjoyed it because of the performances and cinematography, but had to consume it as if I was jumping onto an interesting ride and then jumping off before it was over. It was like tagging along for part of a story, but I wasn’t frustrated by not knowing the before, after or meaning. Just enjoy the ride, if you can.
Just give Joaquin Phoenix the Oscar right now. I don't need to see anyone else's performance. And Philip Seymour Hoffman too.
Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman are incredible in The Master
So here is my review over The Master. Overall, it was amazing. the Cinematography was so beautiful, Joaquin Phoenix was superb. I was so blown away by his performance, he was definitely Oscar worthy. Philip Seymour Hoffman was really great too. Two powerful acting skills on the screen, made it so worth while to watch. The only flaw i will say was that it was a tad bit too long, it kind of dragged on towards the end. But i still love this movie, it's however not for everyone but i LOVED IT. It was super creepy too, id say GO WATCH IT. Paul Anderson did not disappoint.
We saw The Master. Paul Thomas Anderson's film about a damaged drifter getting sucked into early Scientology--they don't call it Scientology. Joaquin Phoenix as the drifter, Philip Seymour Hoffman as the L. Ron Hubbard figure. End of WW2 and 1950s. I guess it doesn't quite gel, in the second half, it "loses traction", but it's really worth seeing. Great performances by those actors. Very able parody of Scientology--which, you know, has a couple of techniques that sort of work up to a point, otherwise it wouldn't find so many suckers. (Dianetics is 2% that could be applicable and 98% hogwash. Hubbard stole the 2%). To me, it's really about how people like Hoffman's character prey on the sick, the damaged, the despairing. It's rather confusing in places. Is his wife dictating to him while he's typing or not? Are the women naked or is the drifter imagining it? Continuity misses some connective tissue. But so many great scenes...
Not many movies can tell a great, impactful story about mere friendship, but 'The Master' is certainly one of them. Joaquin Phoenix finally gives the perfect centimeters-from-the-edge performance that he hinted at with 'Walk The Line' and conned the world into believing wasn't part of the show a few years ago, while Philip Seymour Hoffman schmoozes and bristles and erupts and grins his way into the damaged hearts of everyone within eyesight. It's going to be tough for the Academy to decide which one deserves the Best Actor nomination.
Hey Movie Fans : check out,"The Master" with Amy Adams,Joaquin Phoenix and the great actor Philip Seymour Hoffman. They all shined in their parts.Some disturbing stuff with trauma issues from War and some people saying they may have touched on Scientology. Long flick...Laura Dern also in it.
Any movie staring Joaquin Phoenix or Philip Seymour Hoffman are must sees for me.
Gwen and I saw "The Master" today...great cast...Philip Seymour Hoffman is good in anything he's in...Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, etc.if anybody else has seen it could you tell me what it's about
Well, it has been a really goodl day...didn't start out that way, but boy did it improve! First great news, from daughter-in- law Sandy Brown in Lincoln, their daughter Carrie, just got engaged to long-time beau, Karim Mausher (never met him but the whole fam back there loves him) they live in NYC; then friend and relative Linda Noble took me to a movie, we saw "The Master", what incredible acting! Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman at their absolute best ever & music from 1950! A definite Oscar nom or win for both of them, hard to chose; the film itself won't win, it's a bit dark and takes some getting used to, but the audience was absolutely silent all the way through. Highly recommend the picture. May be parallels to Scientology in Hoffman's group, known as "The Cause". Creepy. More later.
We saw Paul Thomas Anderson's new movie "The Master" tonight. It got one thumbs up and one thumbs down. (I was the thumbs up.) Philip Seymour Hoffman turned in a fine performance. He was so convincing as a cult leader that I predict he gets cast as Hitler before too much more time passes. Joaquin Phoenix actually has more screen time than Hoffman. I'm generally not a fan -- but he was convincing in this part. He's alarmingly skinny in this movie (sunken face, etc.). For a person of faith, "The Master" provides much food for thought, too.
Movie recommendations: "The Master" with the truly remarkable duo, Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman; and "Looper" with the lovely Joseph Gordon-Levitt and old favorite, Bruce Willis.
Saw "The Master" last night. It's not a movie for everybody. But I am sure about one thing: Joaquin Phoenix will get an Oscar nod for his astonishing portrayal of a psychologically troubled, alcoholic drifter who becomes the touchstone for the Master (played by Philip Seymour Hoffman). Phoenix accomplishes this feat in a largely physical performance.
"I'm processing".well-in spite of the amazing critic's reviews-The Master was more like 2 hours plus of watching 2 amazing actors (Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman) play out a character study in acting school. They are incredible- but seriously, is there something we don't know about master-disciple cults? Well, whoever implanted me in whatever time, is just not letting me buy it...blink, blink, blink.fail!
The Master - ★★ - Aside from Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix's incredible performances, I was just flat out bored. Could've been at least 45 minutes shorter. Perhaps I just completely missed the awesomeness that this film is said to be.
I saw Master today at Malco's Ridgeway. I think that movie's gonna stay with me for awhile. Incredible performances by Amy Adams, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix. Oh, to have that kind of talent.
Date night. The Master - getting ready for Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix to get their cult on.
