‘The Master’ Movie review

The Master was released in 2012, which means that it is currently in post production (re-shooting certain scenes). The Master is directed by Paul Thomas Anderson , who has been a favourite director of mine since there was a time where I would listen to his music from Magnolia on repeat. The Master does not differ as it takes place in. The Master is the story of Freddie Quell (Joaquin Phoenix), a World War II veteran who served in the Special Forces. After he returns home with PTSD, he moves into an apartment building that belongs to Lancaster Dodd, who teaches students in this “new religion” called “The Cause”. At first, it seems like any other new religion you’ve ever seen lectures and vigils every day but later one night when Freddie accidentally breaks into Dodd’s office, he sees something that makes him question everything. To be released on December 12th, 2012, the plot line of The Master is loosely based on the life of L. Ron Hubbard [‘LRH’], founder of the controversial Church of Scientology.

My Reviews Of The Film “The Master”

I personally like this movie because it’s very well directed, without a doubt. It had a great psychedelic feel to it that actually made the movie interesting and gave off a feeling of not knowing what was going to happen next. The film is about a man who jumped from job to job and made his own path in life, but he also created some enemies along the way. He is played by Phillip Seymour Hoffman and is extremely convincing as a character I had never seen before.

When he met Lancaster Dodd, played by Phillip Seymore Hoffman’s father (Lancaster Dodd) in the movie, he became very loyal and dedicated to him. Later on in the movie when the main character is falsely accused of sexual misconduct between himself and a possible member of the religious cult that Lancaster Dodd enforces, then he begins to doubt not only his loyalty with his master but also himself as well.
