Hitting screens tomorrow is Paul Thomas Anderson’s brilliant new film The Master starring Joaquin Phoenix as a psychologically damaged war veteran who finds himself working for Lancaster Dodd (Philip Seymour Hoffman), a charismatic figure building his own religion (loosely based on Scientology founder L Ron Hubbard). As the alcoholic, self-destructive former soldier becomes more deeply involved with the leader of this cult-like organization, his natural instincts keep him from embracing his new position as strongly as others in the group would hope. Universally praised by the international press, and breaking box office records in its opening weekend in the US in September, this is a film not to miss.
