There are so many nuances and the material is so rich that I believe I may have to see it again to form an opinion. There are definite scenes that will stay with you!

Absolute Crap!

Excellent acting but no storyline whatsoever. 2+ hours of boredom. Almost no one in the theatre. One couple left after about 30 minutes. I should have joined the exodus.

The Master

Probably the most all-consuming movie I have seen in a long time. Hoffman and Phoenix were amazing The sound and XD enhanced every scene. The closeups of Hoffman-the way Phoenix used his body to complete his characterization of Freddie made me queasy and anxious,,,,I was there. During the sixties and seventies there were many "Masters:" having many of the same personality quirks of the Master. They too passed into anonymity.

incredible mish-mosh

A big disappointment. There was essentially no point at all to this movie. None. Zip - nada. And I pride myself in always being able to get the subtle details of a movie. This was just a bunch of scenes with no real purpose. The acting was a disappointment as well - it could have been great if it had had a purpose - but there was none to be had. After all the hype - its just a no meaning artsie fartsie movie (and I usually like them).

Mixed bag. Mostly awesome, but the low points are low. A handful of very strange scenes. If for no other reason, see it to watch Phoenix. Incredible character.
