Movie Review

The Master-

I used to be able to simply state that I love Paul Thomas Anderson movies. Now... Not so much. I found There will be blood an utter bore. And I find The Master a bore as well.

Yes it looks amazing. The shots, the color, the sets.

The acting is great.

The story... well a drunk sailor with a bad family history, gets on a boat. Meets a cult leader. They become friends. Their friendship ends. The end.

Yes so many fans of PTA are trying to read so much depth into every scene, every line of dialogue.

But maybe the whole thing is just a trick.  Maybe the real meaning is that PTA can fool all the film viewers to think that this great looking but plotless, boring movie is truly deep high art. Just as L. Ron Hubbard was able to fool countless people to follow him.
