The Master, Paul Thomas Anderson’s first film since the stunning There Will Be Blood, boasts virtuoso performances from leads Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Freddie Sutton is a troubled navy veteran, drifting through his turbulent life in post-WWII America. Lancaster Dodd is a volatile and charismatic intellectual who founds his own influential religious cult. When the two men meet, they forge an intense, if unequal, bond. With a haunting and beautiful soundtrack from Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood, The Master is a striking and powerful film which promises to be one of the most talked about releases this Autumn.
