Best reason to punch a wall ever was at my uncle's house, he had a porn video stash on a shelf that was hidden behind this wood panel door, made to blend into the wall. You had to push it in a certain way to get it open. Fuckin' awesome, right? He was like batman. I never could figure it out, though. I'm probably better off for it to save myself from what I'd think of him after watching that stuff, though. lol
You can go to places in the world with pudding. That. Is. Funny.

what an odd contribution you just made there.
“The myth by no means finds its adequate objectification in the spoken word. The structure of the scenes and the visible imagery reveal a deeper wisdom than the poet himself is able to put into words and concepts” – Friedrich Nietzsche

A quote from the dean of my dept regarding the film, "the nudity was gratuitous, and it looked like a method acting contest between JP and PSH," that he,  "wasn't able to look passed." Then he said, "it's two hours I'll never get back."

I told him that his view only furthers the idea that, "he film works."It evoked something.

he wasn't buying it though.
it's not the wrench, it's the plumber.

Well, as PTA would say, "I made a film that won Best Director and Best Actors at the Venice Film Festival, and will probably win a few Oscars. What did you ever do, dummy?" And then he'll grin, and the grin will turn to a grimace as the meaninglessness of these awards strikes him.

But then he'll light up a cigarette and put his feet up and watch the movie again and think, "Hey you know what this movie's FUCKING GREAT."

The thing grows on you unexpectedly/suspiciously well. Which is weird, because I was EXPECTING the film to grow on me. It's just miraculous. My fourth viewing has been my best, and that's saying a lot because the previous viewings were treasures in themselves.

^ It sure does grow. I've only seen it three times but the wait between the 3rd and inevitable 4th has been the lengthiest and at this point I basically walk around mumbling to myself about how bad I want to see The Master again. Listening to the soundtrack most days and hearing songs like "Sweetness of Freddie" and that girls voice on "Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree" evoke these feelings. This movie destroys me and I love the feeling.

So most of my friends have watched the film and they really hated it.  One of them told me "The Master is a great film with great acting, but it has no point whatsoever and it's two hours he'll never get back."  Another said "it was blatant oscar bait" (I don't think of films like this one when people use that phrase.)  Keep in mind my friends for the most part are not film buffs or anything like that but I've also noticed that there are quite a few critics out there who really didn't like it either.  With how polarizing the film has been I was reminded of a post that Pubrick had made when the film was first officially announced:

it's time to start preparing for PTA's backlash/downfall. by this i mean the point in his career where he becomes too good for critics or the general public to understand what he's doing. he's actually been this way since he began but ppl somehow kept up with him. i think we're coming to the Barry Lyndon part of his career where everything he does onwards will be completely misunderstood, underrated, and looked over. Barry Lyndon was characterised as "kubrick's period piece" and that was all -- but it was THE MOST REALISTIC thing he has ever done, he illuminated a world lost to darkness, he reanimated corpses, he made statues come to life. everything afterwards was misunderstood and spoken of in the same "missing the point" kinda way.. the shining "that's just his horror film.. ooh scary" -- it was, as we all know, SO - MUCH - MORE than that.

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.
