'The Master' (Sept. 14)
I've already seen Paul Thomas Anderson's confounding and often hypnotic tale of a battle-scarred World War II veteran (Joaquin Phoenix) and his postwar indoctrination into a Scientology-like religion formed by the title character, played by Philip Seymour Hoffman.Ö Some of it is startlingly beautiful cinema, photographed in 70mm; most of the effective human drama is confined to the first half, but it's well worth the time and effort.
