Here’s the full trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s “The Master” which is totally not about the alien voodoo that is Scientology, but is TOTALLY about the alien voodoo that is Scientology. Joaquin Phoenix has finally shaved away the crazy and brushed away the fuckery to get back to doing real acting shit. Joaquin plays a boozed up mess who is stumbling through life without any kind of purpose until he meets Philip Seymour Hoffman’s character, a writer and nuclear physicist who is the leader of a new religious organization.
Page Six says that since Tommy Girl was in Magnolia, PTA screened the movie to see how the High Priestess of Scientology felt about it. Tommy had “issues” with it and by that he means he found the entire movie….”glib.” Philip Seymour Hoffman said before that the movie isn’t about Scientology. Please. The only way this movie could be more about Scientology is if there was 100% more man-on-man action, a dance number starring John Travolta backed up by the Scientology glory hole chorus boys and a cameo by Kirstie Alley as an intergalactic overlord. Please tell me there’s a cameo by Kirstie Alley as an intergalactic overlord.
