wow thats amazing, I didn't see that.
does anyone know why philip seymour hoffman rides a motorcycle? that seemed a bit random in the trailer. is it something about achieving mental freedom?
Because just like Howard Hughes, L. Ron Hubbard liked the desert... He spent sometime (Again, just like Hughes) riding bikes in the desert.
Yes, that's what I figured too; on that front, it also immediately brought to mind Melvin and Howard, which I believe is one of PTA's favourites.
Yeah... We've already talked about the "Melvin and Howard" references..
There's also so much HARD EIGHT and BOOGIE NIGHTS in that movie... So many shots that PTA "borrowed".
I don't know who's in charge here but I propose
that we start a "Xixax References/Connections" thread. Kinda like IMDB connections but BETTER, because IMDB connections fucking SUCKS. I've sent a ton of references and they NEVER post them, even if they are obvious.
Like the way BOOGIE NIGHTS begins like 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY or how Matt Damon's and Dicaprio's police training in THE DEPARTED is an exact replica of Jodie Foster's training in SILENCE OF THE LAMBS (Literally shot by shot, check it out).
So, what do you guys say if we compile all the references we got for THE MASTER and put it all together in a thread specifically for that?
