The Master

Review: A drama that is set in the 1950’s. A Navel veteran arrives home from war unsettled and uncertain about his future. This is until he is tantalized by ‘the cause’ and it’s charismatic leader.
Director: Paul Thomas Anderson
Actors: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams
Year: 2012
Genre: Drama
Conclusion: 3/5
When this film came out it caused quite a lot of controversy. Great performances. Not one of Paul Thomas Anderson’s best work. Philip Seymour Hoffman acted in 5 of Paul Thomas Anderson films. This being the last one. This film deals with the idea of a cult leader, and how people can be manipulated.
