Storyline Heading
A Naval veteran arrives home from war unsettled and uncertain of his future - until he is tantalized by The Cause and its charismatic leader.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This is a talky and slow-moving period drama which, like all of writer- director Paul Thomas Anderson's films, is for artier, more experimental, independent minded tastes. Fans of Joaquin Phoenix will enjoy this comeback showcase, as will fans of Philip Seymour Hoffman. Of the main actors, Amy Adams has a much smaller role than the two men. Frequent language, alcohol, and sexual references and content make the film inappropriate for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good The Master is one of the most technically impressive films of 2012.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average 'The Master' shows invention and curiosity. It is often spellbinding. But what does it intend to communicate?

USA Today Full Review
Above Average A scene of roiling water on the open seas is a recurring visual in The Master that summarizes the heart of this challenging and sometimes frustrating film.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 14 moviegoers:
Unfortunately, we weren't able to collect very many reviews for this movie. It just showed up out of the blue with no advance notice or promotion. We collected reviews at two showings and still only got 14 reviews. Hardly anyone went to see it.
When you see a movie like this just show up you should be leery of it, especially when it receives great reviews from critics, as this movie has. If it's so good why wasn't it heavily promoted?
Our reviews show that this isn't likely a movie the average moviegoer will enjoy very much. A few rated it high but most rated it average and poor.
