This needed a thread. Color me friggin' ravenous for this film. There's so much about Scientology that simply bursts with dramatic potential, and it's about time someone tackled it head-on on a wide scale, and let the fuckers wheel their lawyers out. I hope PTA is the guy who does it. Emily Watson has seen the first 30 minutes of The Master -- she says the film will be "incredible": http://cigsandredvines.blogspot.com/2011/12/emily-watson-has-seen-first-30-minutes.html Unfortunately PTA's regular DP, the brilliant Robert Elswit, did not lens this movie, which is currently in post-production. His new DP is Mihai Malaimare Jr., who shot Youth Without Youth and Tetro for Coppola. And they've shot some or most of the film with the same 65mm cameras Kubrick used on 2001: A Space Odyssey. In a world being overrun with digital photography and iMoviemagic, that is some incredibly exciting news to me. I'm not a snob. I like plenty of digital movies, but the idea of P.T. Anderson carrying that particular torch is something to cherish as a fan of film. Finally, Jonny Greenwood has been confirmed as doing the score: http://cigsandredvines.blogspot.com/2011/12/jonny-greenwood-returning-to-score.html Psyched that Greenwood is back.
