Saturday Afternoon Movie - The Master

The movie starts at 3:30pm. I will be waiting in the lobby at 3:10pm. We can do Fido's afterwards to discuss the film.

About the film...

The Master (Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, dir. by Wes Anderson)

Like all of Anderson’s films to date, The Master is a study of masculine power: the risks men take, the control they seek, the wars they wage with one another. The context of a twentieth-century, man-made religion is a potent one, allowing Anderson to illuminate new aspects of his recurring themes. Hoffman, Phoenix and Adams give the film the depth only great actors can bring, and the spare score by Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood (who also scored Anderson’s There Will Be Blood) amplifies the film’s ability to unsettle.

    Hoffman was, well Hoffman. Brilliant. Thought he was better in A Late Quartet. Much better movie perhaps.

    Excellent timing for me ! The brunch at 11 with libations, overview by none other than Paul Young prior to the 12:30 showing of Vertigo. Everything just fits ... Hoffman is starting to really grow on me after a Late Quartet. Can't wait !
    Will be wearing the usual olive drab army jacket, vintage 1970. In the lobby right after Vertigo.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
