Amy Adams played a character named "MARY" in the Muppets movie (2011)...

Amy adams plays a character named "MARY" in The Master (2012).

Coincidence?  I THINK NOT.  *Paranoid Eyes*

Plus, Paul has three children. Children are KNOWN MUPPET-LOVERS.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Okay, ITWT, I think we can all agree this one's a bit of a stretch.

But with some subtle brightness and contrast adjustments...



Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Couple more references... (serious ones)...

- Hal Ashby's "THE LAST DETAIL"... Jack Nicholson (yes, him, again) plays a navy man with an alcohol problem and a short temper.

and

- William Wyler's "THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES" ... I haven't seen it yet, but someone mentioned that the department store Phoenix's character works in, "looks exactly like the department store in 'the best years of our lives'". Tonight I'll watch it and see for myself.

As I've said before it seems like Phoenix's character is drawing heavily from 70's Jack Nicholson. I love that because if there's anyone that can pull off a "Jack Nicholson style craziness" it is Joaquin. Also, on another note, Hoffman's character seems to be channeling Orson Welles... More on this later.


BTW....

My source: IMDB "The Master" boards. Some people were discussing movies that may have inspired PTA. That's where I got this information from.

I take ABSOLUTELY NO CREDIT for these finds. Ya hear that, Pubrick? ABSOLUTELY NO CREDIT. All credit goes to to the over-analytical douchebag IMDB users whose names I don't give enough of a shit to mention.  :yabbse-smiley:

I've seen it a few times. I have no doubts that it will have had some influence on The Master (soldiers return from WW2, one turns to alcohol). Maybe just THAT a character works in a department store. But the department store in TBYOOL is so non-descript, I don't know how anybody could spot similarities to it in a few stills and clips from a trailer.
