More a narrated slideshow than an actual film, but definitely worth a watch/listen if you like to know some of Arbus's thoughts on the world and her inspiration for doing what she did.
I took me long while before I knew what to make of The Master. The film fascinated me from the get-go, seeing it three times in the cinema (two times in 70mm), but even after those three viewings I didn't know what to make of it. Every time I saw a new story. A story about how people function inside a group. A story about a false prophet's slow decay. A story about two men falling in love with each…
An epic in style, but not in substance.
To me it felt like QT tried to accomplish something he already did much better, and denser, in Reservoir Dogs.
I enjoyed seeing it in gorgeous 70mm, but I do feel like QT knew he wanted to make a 180 minute epic before he even decided what the story was going to be. In the end, I don't think it has the substance to back up the size of this film.
