Netflix’s recent addition of “The Master” worth the time


For drifting alcoholic WWII Navy veteran Freddie Quell (Joaquin Phoenix), the one thing missing from his life is some sort of structure and discipline. But after drunkenly stumbling onto a boat captained by cult leader and radical author Lancaster Dodd (Phillip Seymour Hoffman), Quell finds that plus much more. 

Although the movie is a bit of a slow-burner that spans almost two and a half hours, Paul Thomas Anderson’s “The Master” is brimming with beautiful landscape settings, colorful shots, and a dark plot sure to keep your eyes glued to the screen for its entire duration. Joaquin Phoenix and Phillip Seymour Hoffman give performances of a lifetime, showing all why they received Academy Award nominations for Best Actor and Best Actor in a Supporting Role, respectively. 

Log in to Netflix to see this recently added cinematic masterpiece before it’s gone.
