Paul Thomas Anderson’s highly anticipated film “The Master” unspooled at the Venice filmfest Saturday to a rousing reception. Presented in 70 mm it will screen in the same format as a Special Presentation at the Toronto filmfest next week before opening on Sept. 14.
Anderson’s script traces the rise of a new religion similar to Scientology. The film follows Freddie Sutton (Joaquin Phoenix), a drifter who falls under the spell of the charismatic religious leader Lancaster Dodd (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and his dutiful wife Mary Sue (Amy Adams).
Nancy Tartaglione, international editor of Deadline, writes: “The film focuses largely on Phoenix’s shell-shocked, alcoholic and violence prone character – though one suspects he was shell-shocked long before the war. He stumbles across Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Lancaster Dodd, aka The Master, the affable if ominous leader of ‘The Cause,’ who takes Quell under his wing and begins to ‘process’ him. The pair engages in a pas-de-deux throughout the lush film almost erasing every other player – save Amy Adams who is compelling when on screen.”
Hollywood Reporter critic Todd McCarthy concurs: “In a work overflowing with qualities but also brimming with puzzlements, two things stand out: the extraordinary command of cinematic technique, which alone is nearly enough to keep a connoisseur on the edge of his seat the entire time, and the tremendous portrayals by Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman of two entirely antithetical men, one an unlettered drifter without a clue, the other an intellectual charlatan who claims to have all the answers. They become greatly important to one another and yet, in the end, have an oddly negligible mutual effect. The majesterial style, eerie mood and forbidding central characters echo Anderson’s last film, ‘There Will Be Blood,’ a kinship furthered by another bold and discordant score by Jonny Greenwood.”
And Oliver Lyttleton (Indie Wire) writes: “Joaquin Phoenix is indeed as titanic as early buzz suggested. Snarling and mumbling, sometimes to the point of inaudibility, Freddie’s clearly haunted by a drunk father and psychotic mother, and by his experiences in war (subtly alluded to without ever being spelt out – he’s a little more lucid and in control in pre-war flashback sequences) … Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams are certainly in the same league as Phoenix here. Hoffman … gives what might be a career-best turn as the titular Master. It’s less showy than his Truman Capote, for sure, but from his very first scene, one instantly sees the charisma, the ego and the flaws of the man. Adams, meanwhile, doesn’t get as much to do, but she’s cast beautifully against type as his wife Mary Sue, in public the supportive, folksy, ever-pregnant spouse, in private the Lady Macbethish power behind the throne, and someone who clearly has her husband wrapped around her little finger.”
As the wife of a beguiling spiritual leader, Amy Adams’ character in “The Master” takes pains to hide her shortcomings. In public, she toes the party line, extolling the virtues of the Scientology-esque religion founded by her husband, played by Philip Seymour Hoffman. And when she suspects her spouse may be cheating, she tells him only that his exploits must never get back to her.
Adams also seems hesitant to reveal too much of herself, staying upbeat but guarded. When she swept into Bemelmans Bar at the Carlyle last month out of a torrential downpour, she was unflustered, skin aglow and swaddled in layers of earth tones. The heavy rain meant there was a chance that one of her Central Park summer performances of “Into the Woods” might be canceled, but the actress remained hopeful it would clear up before nightfall.
“I don’t ever pray for rain because I feel awful for the people who waited in line for so long for tickets,” she said, pulling back her long red hair, which was somehow still dry.
If the 38-year-old is hard to get a grasp on in an interview — deflecting questions with smiles and polite “Oh, I don’t knows” — it’s not much easier to get a sense of her on-screen. And perhaps that’s the goal of any actor.
So, according to The Film Stage, the upcoming Spike Jonze futuristic film festuring Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Samantha Morton and Olivia Wilde is going by the short and enigmatic title of Her.
“In the not so distant future, Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix), a lonely writer purchases a newly developed operating system designed to meet the user’s every needs. To Theodore’s surprise, a romantic relationship develops between him and his operating system. This unconventional love story blends science fiction and romance in a sweet tale that explores the nature of love and the ways that technology isolates and connects us all.”
Following Tuesday’s release of a new theatrical trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s highly anticipated new movie The Master, we’re now treated to a new clip. And while all material bestowed unto the public thus far has lain focus on stars Philip Seymour Hoffman (the charismatic founder of a new religion) and Joaquin Phoenix (his increasingly skeptical protégée), the new video takes a look at another major player: Amy Adams, who portrays the wife and partner of Hoffman’s character.
Adams appeared on The Late Show on Tuesday night to promote the forthcoming movie and offer the below clip to audiences. As you can see in the video, Adams’ Mary Sue Dodd is even more vehement about the merit in her husband’s religion than he seems to be. When the world begins to scorn Lancaster Dodd’s teachings, Mary Sue demands that they go on the attack.
