First teaser trailer.

Creates more questions about the movie than it answers. Pheonix looks like a good choice for whatever role he's playing, though.

I find something almost hypnotic about the trailer. Like I said in another thread, it really does look like an older classic movie.

What the hell is this movie about?
A charismatic intellectual (Hoffman) launches a religious organization following World War II. A drifter (Phoenix) becomes his right-hand man but as the faith begins to gain a fervent following, the drifter finds himself questioning the belief system and his mentor.
Says it's loosely based on Scientology.


Sounds like the perfect role for Phillip Seymour Hoffman.

It's just a teaser, but it's very effective. Great use of music in the teaser in building atmosphere.

I know it's too early to tell, especially considering we've seen nothing from Hoffman or Adams yet, but I think this might be the movie of the year come awards time. There is something about the teaser that really got to me.

Is it too much to ask for a Daniel Plainview cameo?
The final scene of the movie has Daniel Plainview walking in (wait for applause), he looks at Hoffman says, "I guess you drank the milkshake." They both laugh, freeze frame, credits.

This looks incredibly good.
I know we have very little to go on at this point, but I'm still thinking that this will be the movie of the year.

I don't know what it is about the little we've seen that struck such a chord with me. I guess it looks very purposeful. Like every single shot matters... Hard to explain.

I can't explain it either, but it's like a mix of everything. I used the term hypnotic before yet I can't tell why.

Comparing it to this year's other December films...the best one I can use for comparison is probably Django Unchained since I like both Anderson and Tarantino and they're probably the movies I'm most looking forward to this winter. (Sorry Hobbit and Lincoln (that's coming out in December I think).) But when I watch the teaser for Django Unchained, I get that it is QUENTIN TARANTINO'S Django Unchained. But when I watch these two teasers for The Master, it's like a film that exists independently of who made it and who's in it. There's a seriousness to it that I cannot describe.

This may be the most I've wanted to see a movie based on knowing the least about the story.

Music by Johny Greenwood from Radiohead. He did the music for There Will Be Blood and it was also in this vein - very percussive, minimalist, and using polyrhythm and weird tempos. It was extremely effective in TWBB (he won an Oscar), so I'm excited he's on board for this as well.

Actually, because of the Academy's rules, Greenwood wasn't even nominated for an Oscar. That was the same year Nick Cave/Warren Ellis weren't nominated for their Assassination of Jesse James score.

WTF? I remembered that he won. What happened to mah brain? I guess the fact that Trent Reznor won confused my memories. That score definitely deserved an Oscar, though. It was just so unique and interesting and effective - which is so key in a score.

For some reason I thought it was coming out in December. It's actually coming out October 12.
