I enjoyed JW1 for what it was. This looks awful.

Christopher Plummer is nominated. He shot his scenes two weeks ago. This is—yes—all very silly. And yet, I am happy for Greenwood. Awards make me dumb.

jun togawa make the sweetest songs sometimes.

In Japanese, "suki" can mean several things, but it is most commonly used as the word "like."
Sometimes it can be used as slang for the word "love" as well, since in Japanese, "daisuki" means "to like a lot."
So, If you "daisuki" something that means you like it a lot.

Quick summary from Cigs and Red Vines PTA interview for The Master, many of these influences have already been mentioned in the thread.

You’ve talked about the doc “Let There Be Light” and book “At Ease: Navy Men Of WWII” as being great reference points but can you talk about any other books/films/art that inspired “The Master”?

It's always such a long list.....sometimes it's whatever was on TV that morning. Other times, it's something i'm really into. tons of old film noir's. Out of the Past, dark Corner, Mr. Arkadin, Lady from Shanghai, etc. Nightmare Alley! Val Lewton stuff like Seventh Victim and Ghost Ship. Dianetics in Limbo by Helen O'Brien. Helen Forrest/Kitty Kallen and anything by Jo Stafford music wise. also listened over and over to Stravinsky piece "Ebony Concerto." Duke Ellington - Peer Gynt Suite. list goes on.....oh! how about John O'Hara short stories. earlier drafts have a slight adaption of one of his stories, "Bucket of Blood" I think. great short story.
...All that stuff with Alligators in sewers was stolen from Pynchon's V. We looked around some sewers in upstate New York...... eventually decided to ditch the whole story line in writing before spending money and time on something unnecessary to the Main Event.

We know it was always a semi-regular sing along at the old Largo but how did “Slow Boat To China” come to you as the climax of the film?

Can't remember the moment of decision for sure....but i think i was influenced by a tapestry on a bathroom wall i saw at a house i was staying at in Gloucster, Mass. great fishing/sailing town and the tapestry was about Sailors and Lighthouses lighting up the was a little poem with a lighthouse on it....reminded me of Slow Boat to China the way it rhymed......that's probably the connection. kept going back to that bathroom while writing and then presto -chango - you've got Master's serenade.

From memory, one of the most commonly heard influence/inspirations from this period was TCM.

As if it isn't bad enough we have to wait till the 19th, we also have to settle for DCP projection while NY/LA flaunts 70MM prints.

DCP is fine, I actually think blowing up 35mm to 70 is dumb, like someone else said I saw Inherent Vice on 70mm looked just like a 35mm projection.

I think 35mm screenings would be cooler, but having seen it on 35mm I actually would like to see it next on a DCP, soak in the photography from a perfect scan. Just my opinion though, great film no matter how you see it though.
