Hey, speaking of beautifully-shot films: check out this full trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master. Following up on some cryptic trailers, a little strip of film, and an ambiguous, fluid-filled poster, this preview finally gives away some of the film's long-rumored Scientology parallels, with Philip Seymour Hoffman seemingly inventing a cult-like religion that quickly lures in a highly-unstable, alcoholic Joaquin Phoenix, who's really just looking for any place at all to hang his disquieting sneer. Amy Adams joins as Hoffman's concerned wife and a dissenting voice against allowing Joaquin Phoenix and his openly-manic tendencies into their made-up religion club. Still, as always, she delights.
