It has been about two weeks now since I have seen The Master and it still rattles round my head like a restless ghost. My own interpretation is that Freddy and Dodd are one in the same person and this is all a physicalized representation of the Process. Freddy seems to be the ID to Dodd's Ego with Amy Adams as the Superego trying to keep everything in check. This is very broad interpretation and certainly does not cross all the T's and dot all the I's, but I do not believe much of this film is real nor should be viewed in such a way. I wish it more about Dodd and the rise of a cult and it's seduction of seemingly intelligent people much like Hitler seduced many German people to follow his own madness. It might have been a grander story.

I love PTA, so I wanted to love this, but I was bored to tears. Nothing happens in this film. I didn't care about what happened to anyone. When Philip Seymour Hoffman starts singing at the end, I just hated the film.

My opinion summed up: The Master is a great piece of film. It challenges it's audience while also holding their interest and also has beautiful cinematography with compelling performances with haunting moments. If this movie isn't Oscar worthy, I don't know what is. Your review was great by the way.

Hey Rich,
Great video as always. I happened to be wondering, why have you not given the same number of A+ grades this year as previous years, when you have in fact given between ten and fifteen movies a grade of A this year? Asides from Prometheus and maybe Bernie, I haven't really gotten the sense that you really loved many films this year.
