The Master. I saw it at the Cockatoo Island Film Festival. Then later I went to see it at the only screen in Sydney showing it in 70mm. The movie gets better the more I think about it. There are scenes, moments, ideas that wouldn't happen in any other film. Freddie on the beach with his girl. Freddie and taking the man's picture. The way Freddie stands. The blink scene. Freddie and Doris. Freddie and Doris' mother. Freddie's escape. The final scene between Freddie and The Master. PTA doesn't bore you with scenes you don't need, either. He gives you just enough info to put the pieces together yourself. A haunting portrait of men coming home from war. It is also a beautiful love story. I don't think I will ever forget this movie.
