New Clip From Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master

Judging from the tantalising glimpses and superb trailer we have seen so far, a new clip The Master released in promotion of a charity screening that was held on the 22nd at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco, has cemented even further its status as one of the most hotly anticipated films of the year.

Being Director Paul Thomas Anderson’s first film since the highly acclaimed There Will Be Blood and Joaquin Phoenix’s first feature since his bizarre ‘retirement’ and stint in hoax-Mockumentary territory there is much to look forward to.

As well as Phoenix there is a stellar ensemble cast featuring Phillip-Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, and Laura Dern in this tale of dogmatic intellectual ‘The Master’ (Seymour-Hoffman) and the spreading of his faith-based movement in Post-War America. Recruiting a drifter in the form of Phoenix, the organisation gradually begins to gain a following though before long the he begins to question his new mentor and the beliefs he has embraced.

The trailer is below in case you missed it as is the clip showing Phoenix, who has lost his ship, running along a pier amidst beautiful cinematography which should give audiences at Venice and Toronto a further idea of what to expect when the film is screened there in the next few weeks.
