pretty sure a highly intelligent hollywood nerd who was best friends with QT and dated fiona apple isn't a rightoid but i could be wrong>The Master is telling you about the danger of sexual liberation
then don't cast a sexless nothing amy adams plus two fat losers who couldn't fuck their way out of a paper bag>>172810252>It's a criticism of repression and the Catholic Church opressing people's sexual repression while being hypocritical.
whew that sentence was a doozy... pretty sure the master was just a dumbass lazy jerkoff idea around the LRH-PSH joke. character was blatantly styled after L. ron hubbard but PTA should have gone all the way and just made an LRH film. why he chose to include things like the ship and then go no further i'll never understand. don't get any of his films since TWBB and if phantom thread is DDL's last film then god help us>Criticism of Christianity and how Capitalism has become the new God
yeah daniel represents capitalism and eli represents religion; joke of the film is that deserve each other and we (normal people) should stay away from both>Honestly, a film meant to distract people from the real problems by vaguely criticizing white ambitious businessmen
uh-oh hearing some jewssshhhh talk want to get anything off your chest, incel? and "vaguely" criticizing? he was beating your head with a stick that said "daniel is rotten to the core". if the idea of the film was to scapegoat white businessmen then it wouldn't have portrayed all the other oil guys as being so reasonable/kind/average like tilford >Magnolia criticized Cruise as having a poor father figure and was coping.
yup earl ruined frank's life, donny was exploited by his parents, stanley likewise, claudia was raped by jimmy (new boyfriend is named jim)... most interesting thing people never talk about is "the worm". we never learn that much about the character but he>wears a dog leash around his neck>clearly has some kind of sway over the young boy
