“I am a writer, a doctor, a nuclear physicist and a theoretical philosopher. But above all, I am a man, a hopelessly inquisitive man, just like you.”
Paul Thomas Anderson’s filmmaking career has been built from a yearning to innovate and astonish and though his profound cinematic presentations of life are some of the film industry’s finest, it’s his flawless consistency that’s truly remarkable. His success with such a unique style and ability to surpass even his own high expectations has warranted recognition as a modern day auteur. Five years on from There Will Be Blood, the great director returns with his most unique venture, but like all of his perfectionist creations, The Master is psychologically absorbing, yet strikingly cinematic and emotionally engaging.
