Review: “The Master”

My review of Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master.

I intend to write more about this at a later date, as I address it again as part of the ongoing Directed Viewing project, but I feel like at first blush this review more or less stands on its own. The movie, while certainly a new direction for Anderson, ends up being a further examination of a prototypical American malaise that has made up his entire filmography to date. It just does it in interesting, sometimes difficult, ways.

Either way, check out the review, and be sure to catch the movie! It’s absolutely gorgeous and should be seen in a theater.
