This teaser poster for The Master absolutely lives up to its name

The Master thin banner

For someone who knows anything at all about THE MASTER, the poster below should be immensely rewarding as it is bursting with layer upon layer of meaning, reference, and symbolism. It's also subtly unusual for those who don't know about the film.  Either way, that's just how writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson rolls. Same with film. Film rolls, too.

And shooting with film is just the way Paul Thomas Anderson... rolls...

THE MASTER seeks to seduce and inspire you sometime this fall (October is what I'm hearing).

Extra Tidbit: I have this sneaky supposition that the name "Lancaster Dodd" is a reference to Burt Lancaster's Oscar-winning turn as charismatic religious leader Elmer Gantry in the 1960 film of the same name. My current life goal is to ask Paul Thomas Anderson if this is true.
