A Clip From Paul Thomas Anderson’s THE MASTER
“I’m in love.”
Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master is having a benefit screening in Chicago, tomorrow night (on 70mm). in a related story, for the first time in my life i’m upset that i don’t live near Chicago. this tantalizing snippet doesn’t appear to spoil anything at all, but if you’re trying to remain purer than pure, at least experience this with eyes closed, if only to get a taste of Jonny Greenwood’s score…
The Master opens in New York and LA and not Chicago on 9/14/12.

Well, I couldn’t afford a place like this in a million years… unless, of course, I’m discovered and become a movie star. Of course, I’d rather be known as a great actress than a movie star. But, you know, sometimes people end up being both. So that is, I guess you’d say, sort of why I came here. [pause] I’m sorry. I’m just so excited to be here. I mean I just came here from Deep River, Ontario, and now I’m in this dream place. Well, you can imagine how I feel.
Werckmeister Harmonies (2000) dir. Béla Tarr
“Can you feel it? The sky darkens, then goes all dark. The dogs howl, rabbits hunch down, the deer run in panic, run, stampede in fright. And in this awful, incomprehensible dusk, even the birds… the birds too are confused and go to roost. And then… Complete Silence. Everything that lives is still. Are the hills going to march off? Will heaven fall upon us? Will the Earth open under us? We don’t know. We don’t know, for a total eclipse has come upon us… But… but no need to fear. It’s not over. For across the sun’s glowing sphere, slowly, the Moon swims away. And the sun once again bursts forth, and to the Earth slowly there comes again light, and warmth again floods the Earth. Deep emotion pierces everyone. They have escaped the weight of darkness.”
