Capital Celluloid 2012 - Day 313: Thu Nov 8

The Master (Anderson, 2012): Odeon West End, 11am; 2.10pm; 5.40pm and 9.10pm

Don't miss the chance to see this film, described as "a cult classic in the making" by Time Out this week, in a special 70mm presentation at the Odeon West End in Leicester Square every day from Friday Nov 1 - Thursday Nov 15. Details here.

Time Out review:
'Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘The Master’ riffs on the early roots and allure of Scientology with the same compelling strangeness and heady intensity that the American writer-director of ‘Boogie Nights’ and ‘Magnolia’ brought to his last film, ‘There Will Be Blood’. ‘The Master’ is another tale of warped power and fanatical delusions, and it sees Anderson on captivating form as a director who is able to surprise and impress with scene after scene. The Master’ is driven by a spare, jaunty and eccentric score by Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood. Anderson dominates the rarely-used 65mm format – his close-ups are overwhelming and his longer shots are deep and layered, even seeming 3D-like at their most inventive, with colours and detail brilliantly evoked.' Dave Calhoun

Here is the trailer.
