The Master is incredibly acted. It’s visually impressive. But, it’s overall a comatose-inducing film.
I’m just going to come right out and say it: I didn’t get it.
There. That’s my secret shame about movies like this. When a movie seems smart and there’s clearly a lot of talent that went into it, I just know that it’s me. I grew up in a small suburb in Texas. I’m state school educated. Maybe I’m dumb. Because I didn’t get it.
