Paul Thomas Anderson‘s The Master is a dense, intense film that gets better with every viewing. That’s even more obvious now that the Blu-ray has been released. Now, if you so choose, you can replay some of the intense scenes between Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams. You can pause to consider what’s being said. And, in an awesome set of extras, there’s a chance to watch 20 minutes of deleted scenes that give a certain amount of context to some of the film’s less clear narrative points.
Anderson screened this 20-minute reel back in November and we wrote all about it then. Now you can watch the footage online.
Thanks to The Playlist for the heads up.
There’s so much that can be broken down there. Not only some of the narrative connections but also the mood on set, and the beautiful 70mm cinematography that didn’t make the film. What stands out most to you in this video?
