Among film buffs, there is no 2012 film more anticipated than Paul Thomas Anderson's 'The Master.' It's been five long years since the modern master's 'There Will Be Blood' knocked us flat on our butts (and drank our milkshake) and his return couldn't have come a moment too soon...only PTA could redeem a year as disappointing as this one has been! 'The Master' had its unofficial premiere last night, a surprise showing following a repertory screening of Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining' at Santa Monica’s Aero Theater. While no professional critics were in attendance, the regular folks took to Twitter afterwards to share their thoughts.
So...what did people think of 'The Master'?

There's been a flurry of news about Paul Thomas Anderson's 'The Master' recently, as it had its release date bumped up, and it's joined a number of festivals. But though we know the broad outlines of the film (and rumored Scientology bashing), we're happy the film has release more stills so we can look at its actors.

Easily one of our most-anticipated films due out in the second half of the year, Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘The Master’ has been dishing out clues to the suspenseful trip audiences can expect to take once the drama reaches theaters in October. Joaquin Phoenix starred in that first clip, drenched in mood but showing us very little. His ‘Master’ co-star Philip Seymour Hoffman takes center stage in the next teaser, and if this doesn’t have you salivating for Anderson’s latest, then nothing will.

Ever since it first came on the radar, we've been hearing that writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson's new film 'The Master' is a thinly-veiled look at the secretive religion known as Scientology. And now it appears that Anderson has shown the movie to the world's most famous living Scientologist.

Yes, we understand that the Academy Awards just aired a few weeks ago, but we’re already looking ahead to next year’s telecast thanks to news that a potential contender has announced its limited release date. That would be Paul Thomas Anderson’s wildly anticipated ‘The Master,’ a drama centered around a controversial organized religion that reunites the director with his ‘Boogie Nights’ standout Philip Seymour Hoffman. It's a movie we can't wait to see and now we know when we can see it.
