The trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s new film The Master was released yesterday, and though you can’t see much, there’s still a ton of potential. I’m definitely one of those people who doesn’t like to know anything about a movie, but here a tiny blip of what it’s about.
The film stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, and Laura Dern. The plot involves a religion called “The Cause” which has been compared to Scientology.
Based on the clip above, I have no idea what to expect. Joaquin Phoenix though seems like he’s going to give a pretty fantastic performance, so that’s exciting to look forward to. It’s not really surprising though, as P.T. Anderson tends to bring the best out of his actors. Is it too much to say that Paul Thomas Anderson is the best living director? Maybe The Master will seal the deal on that topic.
