The Master

The Master, once seen as a contender for the highest grossing art-house film of all time, saw its star Joaquin Phoenix blow his Oscar hopes by recently calling the Academy Awards ‘bullshit’. Though in many ways triumphant, these aren’t the film’s only disappointments, writes NANCY NAPPER CANTER.


With screenplay genius such as ‘Argo fuck yourself’, JACKSON CAINES manages to believe in both the plot and the quality of this Oscar contender from not-just-a-pretty-face Ben Affleck.
