NEWSish:

So PTA screened it for Cruise

and, "Cruise “had issues” with some parts of the movie"

So much for avoiding the Scientology parallels. I'd like to know what Pubrick thinks about this.

I hope to God the film is not edited to "avoid conflict" with Scientology. We have no reason to think it will be, right?

Maybe this is just a friendly gesture to disarm them and avoid conflict, not to actually use their feedback. In which case it could be genius.

It has to be the latter. It seems to me the last group you want to have influence over your work would be the Scientologist.  They seem to be the give them an inch and they'll take a yard kind of group.  Also, I'm sure he would never do a film he didn't have final cut on so he wouldn't do this movie with an idea of handing over final cut to an outside group.  Finally, who would rather piss off? scientologist or the PTA fan boys? Sure the latter will raise hell over PTA being forced to edit his newest film.
If you think this is going to have a happy ending, you haven't been paying attention.

Can't say I absolutely love the work of Mihai Malaimare Jr. until now though, mainly because I can't even pronounce his name.

In my head I've been pronouncing it:

“Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” - Andy Warhol

show it to Travolta, give him a nice little handy after and this will all get smoothed over.

intelligibleoxicated thoughts
on the tease..........................................

love the distinctive look of this thing

idk what's happening in that 65cam but such a 50's vibe giving off there in those images :inlove:  Malware Jr., what a fresh choice for this, gives it almost a European vibe.

freddie got interrogated; like pdl, his reactions like barry w/lena at restaurant and the likes.

torpedo juice is brilliant. only pt  can come up with this stuff, shifting around down there, like plainview in the derrick. dont talk, just...yeeah 

jonny's music makes the teaser, adds lots and lots to the kubrickian vibe. vibe. vi.be.

SPOILER FROM THE PLAY BY PLAY FOR NITPICKY JER BLACKS WHO WILL BUTT IN AND EDIT MY POST IF I DONT LABEL AS SUCH

masturbating on beach sandlove; sounds pdl-like too barry phone-love angry toby n. tucker.violence knuckle love. 





intelligible thoughts to resume round the campfire

I'd just like to show my appreciation for this shot composition. Seems like it's taking directly from Kubrick's obsession with setting up shots in symmetrical triangles. Also note  the red lights in the background also framing that triangle like a boss.
superb

So its 4:00am and I go watch "the master" teaser before i go to bed, and i realize something.

WHY IS IT NOT IN 2:20:1??  And in a type of 1:85.1 style???  I have a 23' inch wide screen monitor and this is how i see it.  I want to see how the fish eye shot looks like in 2.20, or 2.35 even!
anyway it was after i posted my first serious fanalysis. after the long post all he could say was that the main reason he wanted to see the master was cos of all the red heads.
  :P

Man, it didn't take long for us to stop talking about that. I blame all the "no spoilers" people.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

i'm writing a longish post in reply to pozer's poignant question.

but in the meantime, and because i want people to read it once i post, it would be a good idea to get rid of the spoiler tag on the thread. it's not necessary to taint a whole thread when only a few posts are spoilerish.. and even then just about the least spoiling spoilers ever.

until the movie comes out and a thread for those who have seen it is created, spoilers can be marked locally within posts.. no need to block out a whole thread.

"I've seen 90 minutes of his new one. It's just good. It's not really about Scientology. It just takes place in the '50s. "

there you have it i guess.

I'm certainly up for a field trip to Venice. I'll sell my collection of 1980s baseball cards to fund it.

I'm actually in Venice right now. If they can get the movie here before 6 pm local time today, I'm set.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.
