5.0 out of 5 stars A Compelling Fictionalized Look at Scientology's Early History, May 11, 2013
This review is from: The Master (DVD)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, "The Master" is a compelling fictionalized look at a troubled young man's search for salvation in a new religious movement. Inspired by the early history of Scientology and its founder, the writer L. Ron Hubbard, "The Master" introduces us to World War II naval veteran Freddie Quell (Joaquin Phoenix) who returns home emotionally scarred, remaining a drifter until he encounters the charismatic Lancaster Dodds (Philip Seymour Hoffman) - "The Master" - the founder and leader of the religious movement known as "The Cause" and Dodds' wife Peggy (Amy Adams). Will Quell find salvation as a devoted follower of The Master and The Cause, or will he fall prey to his innermost demons, yielding a most grim destiny for his future. Nominated for three Academy Awards for in the categories of Best Actor (Phoenix), Best Supporting Actor (Hoffman) and Best Supporting Actress (Adams) and recipient of numerous awards bestowed by film critics in several major American cities, "The Master" was one of 2012's best films and represents yet another notable cinematic achievement from director Paul Thomas Anderson.
