Another special screening announced for Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘The Master’, and that means a new (NSFW) clip!





If you just learn one thing from this vile new clip from Paul Thomas Anderson’s highly praised new film, The Master, then that would be Joaquin Phoenix’s incredible performance. While we have seen trailers and clips, it hasn’t been until this clip that I have truly noticed quite how amazing his delivery of the character actually is. In fact, the performance looks like nothing short of genius, and after such a blistering display of madness and confidence from Daniel Day Lewis as Daniel Plainview in There Will Be Blood, Anderson appears to have done it again with Phoenix. A great casting choice, and this just might turn out to be the standout performance of the year!

The new clip, which see’s Phoenix’s troubled character Freddie Quell go through some vision and imagination tests, comes with a announcement of yet another special screening of the film. If you are lucky enough to live in Austin, Texas, then The Master will play at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz this coming Monday.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
