New Amy Adams Clip From Anderson’s The Master

New Clip Form The MasterWhat’s the old saying? Behind every great man, there’s a woman. Amy Adams shows she no female implant set to stand around and look pretty, she has a role in The Master, one that could bring acclaim.


I will say it flat out, “Paul Thomas Anderson has been the best working director in the world since 1998.” Boogie Nights, Magnolia, Punch-Drunk Love, and There Will Be Blood have more intensity and adjust-in-your-seat anxious moments then the last 200 films to hit the theaters combined.


Watch the clip and look at the set up. Listen to the music. Notice the intensity build. Philip Seymour Hoffman’s back is to the camera, as he furiously types away. Adams ton and pace slowly quickens and intensifies, building towards something, probably a famous Philip Seymour Hoffman explosion. His character, Lancaster Dodd will turn around and blow-up and you’ll feel it because the moment didn’t just happen, no! It build up and became. It was birthed, like a real living thing.


PT Anderson uses music like Opera’s, the moments and the music build together, sometimes over ten and even fifteen minute sequences — fucking brilliant stuff. In Magnolia, he intertwines 8 characters through a fifteen minute sequence and it just leaves you in awe. Your never confused, you know what’s going on, and you can follow every storyline as though it were one — it as if your following a simple sitcom storyline or something, but you know it’s anything but. In fact its super complicated and measured. It’s amazing.


No, other filmmaker does it like him. I’ll agree, other filmmakers could do it, but very few are given the rope Anderson gets to explore  these intense, crescendo like sequences. Spielberg, had some brillant sequences like PT Anderson’s in Schindler’s List. Same thing, in fact, I’d bet PT Anderson was inspired and knows that film backwards and forwards. It is, after all, the greatest directed film in history — Yea, I said it. Not the greatest film, but greatest directed film in history.


The Master Stars Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Amy Adams. It hits theaters September 14th, 2012. Oh, Paul Thomas Ander wrote the screenplay, who else? I seriously doubt he’ll ever direct another person’s screenplay.


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.
