Watch The Master (2012) Online
Paul Thomas Anderson follows the oily gothic of There Will Be Blood with another American obsession - self-help - in this masterly drama. Philip Seymour Hoffman is devilish dynamite as the charismatic cult leader of The Cause, a self-improvement "religion" not a million miles away from Scientology. Joaquin Phoenix, back from the wilderness of in-joke mockumentaries, also scores as a violent misfit who falls in with Hoffman’s gang of goofballs and is seen by the leader as a perfect test case for his outlandish theories. Funny, disturbing and thrilling; unlike real cults, The Master messes with your noggin in all the right ways.
