Quote from: HeywoodRFloyd on September 04, 2012, 11:53:08 PMWhy did he release alternate takes/unused footage from the film in the teasers and trailers?
Quote from: HeywoodRFloyd on August 19, 2012, 01:11:18 AM"Plus for a lot of the scenes that ARE in the movie, they used a lot of alternate takes for the trailers. So the experience of seeing the movie can actually be FRESH"Why would PTA do that?I think it is showing how a person remembers a memory or an experience, it's not exactly how it really was, it's not 'The Master of that Memory' (Thanks Pubrick) it's how you comprehended it at that point in time, from a perspective you had at that point in time, how you 'processed' that information. And I think the 3rd Teaser fits in here beautifully. LOVE. Love is a key to how this works. Remember from personal experience, when you have been in Love, even if that Love is diminished, that memory that you might have from an experience you processed when you were in love, still holds that emotional value that you attributed to it back then, hence that memory is not like how it really was, but how you remembered it to be.I might be stretching it here, but I actually have strong faith in this next point, otherwise why would Paul even do it this way?Okay, now let's look at the teasers and trailers. I've already seen people mention that the teasers aren't colour corrected... but what if they weren't meant to be? What if the blown out hazy look of the teasers were meant to represent a memory of that scene. Not 'The Master Experience'. What if the reason PTA released these in only 720p was to achieve a fragment, a hazy look, not well defined and beautiful but a flashback. When you remember a memory, you don't really remember details, you remember just the focus of the memory, usually just the conversation etc.[/size]
Quote from: Pubrick on September 06, 2012, 06:06:18 AMXpost from Quirky delights in PDL..Why hasn't PDL been released on bluray? Is a "superbit" dvd release good enough to the point of rendering a quality blu transfer redundant? He should care about the home release of his films because it's how everyone in the world is going to see his work after the elite theatrical runs. Not to belabor the comparison, but Kubrick (whom all great post-Kubrick directors must be measured by) spent a large part of his time making sure that his films were being released to decent specifications. Unfortunately, the capabilities of VHS and 4:3 CRT TVs were pitiful and he had to contend with the lamest possible reproduction constraints. Still, he made the most of it by diligently "protecting the frame" (his words) in his post 1980 films so they could be enjoyed in the ancient VHS era.Even with those restrictions old man Kube still had the foresight to know that eventually people MUST be able to see things in high definition, evidenced by the extremely fine detail present in every inch of his films. SO it is incumbent upon modern makers of masterpieces to make sure the best possible version of their works is available for home viewing, employing the best modern technology, and not just be satisfied that a few hundred douche bags will get to see their films in 70mm.. while the rest are left sitting at home with their limp lo-res dicks in their hands.
QuoteSo was PTA thinking about the home releases of The Master when he made the decision to frame the film by bringing in the edges? I think that's an important question to also ask
QuoteFilms essentially become classics at home, regardless how well/poor it was received in it's theatrical run.
Quote from: Pubrick on September 11, 2012, 06:33:41 PManyway it was after i posted my first serious fanalysis. after the long post all he could say was that the main reason he wanted to see the master was cos of all the red heads.
