The Master (2012)
With three of the greatest films of the past 15 years on his resume (Boogie Nights, Magnolia and There Will Be Blood), this was probably my most highly anticipated film since No Country For Old Men.
The cinematography and performances by all three leading characters (Hoffman, Phoenix and Adams) are outstanding.
But the problem for myself and many others in the theater was that there simply is not enough conflict in this picture --- and this is surprising, given the amount of conflict in most of PT Anderson's past works.
Still, it's definitely worth seeing. Like most of Anderson's films The Master will keep you thinking for the next several days. It just isn't his best work.
