Harvey Weinstein likes to milk his PR. We all know that Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master," which made its La debut at an unannounced 70 mm screening at the Aero Theatre last Saturday (Toh review here), was set to show at the 69th Venice Biennale. Sure enough, the official release finally arrived, announcing four new titles including "The Master," starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams, which will be shown in 70 mm. Chances are also good the film will turn up in Toronto. The 18th film in the Competition and Anderson's first Venice entry will be shown in the Sala Grande (Palazzo del Cinema) on September 1st at 7.00 p.m. Anderson is up against fellow Venice competition rookies Olivier Assayas, Ramin Baharani, Peter Brosens and Jessica Woodworth, Rama Burshtein, Daniele Ciprì, Xavier Giannoli, Harmony Korine, Terrence Malick, Valeria Sarmiento, and Kirill Serebrennikov, as well as veterans Marco Bellocchio, »
