If PDL showed the good of men, TWBB showed the darkness, and The Master will illuminate the dichotomy, how one plays off the other.
^I really enjoyed this, very spot on. It's very beautifully and meaningfully stated.
From the early draft of The Master, which pretty much means nothing like you said...China...(but it's impossible to not go on), I'm anticipating that PTA is going to make Joaquin(Jonathon/Freddie)'s role to be the stylistic conductor of the film. Especially in the regard to how deep in alcoholism he is to be this fucking obscure booze connoisseur(I love in film when there is that "DRINK" a la Clockwork, Lebowski...etc.). I'm anticipating for how that will set the tone for the film, akin to how Barry's mental state conducted PDL, and how DDL's transformation conducted TWBB. Combine this with The Master's manipulating, contradicting, almost hypnotizing way of life, this sets up a setting for PTA to just create something so utterly beautiful aesthetically, emotionally, spiritually, every way combined.
I've been imagining that scene when they go in the underground sewage tunnel ever since I read it...wow. There are so many possibilities...
PS: Not sure how many people checked out Zed-U, one of the collaborators Greenwood is working with on the score, but while reading the script I kept hearing my favorite tune from them in my head mixed with some disturbing undertones from Greenwood.
Check this song out, I couldn't find it on YouTube. It's so great(or "wonderful" as the man would say): "Roki" by Zed-u
I'm just overly excited guys. That's all.
