Thom Yorke is one of the most avant-garde, cutting edge musical performers of his generation, with both his work as front-man for british prog-rock outfit Radiohead, and as a solo artist, pushing the boundaries of how music is performed, produced, and perceived. With Anima, he's looking to push those boundaries even further. Now, Yorke is […]

Fan-favorite filmmaker Uwe Boll has taken to Twitter to levy very serious allegations against Phantom Thread director Paul Thomas Anderson. Boll claims that Anderson copied the Phantom Thread movie poster from Boll's movie Bloodrayne in retaliation for Boll criticizing Phantom Thread on his podcast. https://twitter.com/UweBollRaw/status/962101759907831808 Boll asked the clickbait news media to pick up this story […]
In a forty-minute talk with Deadline's Peter Hammond, directors Quentin Tarantino and Paul Thomas Anderson discuss their use of 70mm film in their recent projects and their love of celluloid. Tarantino refers to the popular interest in 70mm as "film's last stand." With Anderson's The Master, distributor The Weinstein Company began installing 70mm projectors in […]
Paul Thomas Anderson's seventh film is the first adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel. Its the story set in the late 60's about a private detective named Doc Sportello (Joaquin Phoenix) who gets mixed up in a caper involving his ex-girlfriend (Katherine Waterston) and a plot to kidnap a billionaire land developer (Eric Roberts). Also […]
A demonstration of Paul Thomas Anderson's stylisation.
Patrick Dane writes for Bleeding Cool. While Brendon was in a screening and Hannah was standing around in a field,* I had the pleasure of waking up early and scooting myself over to the BFI's press release event for the BFI's 56th London Film Festival. While the buzz word around twitter going into the screening […]
For a film shot and, with a bit of luck, widely presented in 70mm, Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master features an awful lot of midshots. I'm not complaining – it's just not what we typically associate with large-gauge cinema. I do appreciate how brief and, for want of a better term, enigmatic this trailer is. I'm […]
Which Joaquin Phoenix is your favourite? I like the blurry one under his own name.
Maintaining the rather frequent studio pattern of releasing a poster one day and a trailer the next, here's the first theatrical promo for Paul Thomas Anderson's next, The Master. So it wasn't quite nailed down to a Wes Anderson level of anal retentiveness but this trailer certainly showcased a lot of very geometric images. Look […]
I'm not sure what this poster is about, at all, but the name of the film is nice and clear and you can see the names of some people who are in it and the person who wrote and directed it. And it's already gotten people talking, look: blah blah enigma blah blah water blah […]
Paul Thomas Anderson and co. are working hard to sell the mystique and prestige of his new film, The Master. Here's the second short teaser clip to be released, this time featuring co-stars Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams alongside Joaquin Phoenix. Johnny Greenwood's music was doing a lot of the heavy lifting there, and […]
Believed to be fictionalised portrait of Scientology and its founder, L. Ron Hubbard, The Master is the next picture from There Will Be Blood overlord Paul Thomas Anderson. Judging from this first trailer, it seems to be structured around the experience of Joaquin Phóenix´s character, a young fella who becomes the right-hand man to Philip […]
Some pieces of the puzzle have lately come together for Paul Thomas Anderson's next project, a film that was previously best known as The Master. The key stars have recently been set, with Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix set to take the roles of a man who invents a "belief system" and one of […]
A page from Joss Whedon's screenplay for The Avengers; another from Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master; and the cover of Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained. All three have appeared in the blogosphere in some way or another, in this last week. In the case of Django Unchained, it was a scan of the script's handwritten cover that […]
Take a good look at the picture above. What do you see? I see a very vaguely drawn individual, probably in need of a shave, sitting with a hefty, similarly sketchy camera that has apparently been marked 2001. How mysterious. The image is not invented, but copied from a photograph that Paul Thomas Anderson fansite […]
