This movie came out Friday, September 14. I would like to rank it, but the site isn't letting me because the October release date listed is wrong. Can someone please fix this?

I enjoyed The Master, but it's definitely not for everyone. I'm not entirely sure I understood it entirely.

One of the top ten best performances from an actor ever! Joaquin Phoenix was amazing.

You know what I totally agree with that one of my favorite performances I've ever seen by Joaquin Phoenix as well

this movie is unreal. vivid yet elusive, straight-forward yet cryptic. it goes from being almost airless to as dense as a rich novel. its full of paradoxes.

I feel like I should watch this movie again. Great film, but it will probably take time for me to know exactly how I feel about it.

The five films that I've seen from him are all masterpieces, The Master is the only one that I don't absolutely love, but still really like. P.T.A. and Coen bros. are the best working directors these days (with Fincher, McQueen and few others). Films for people who think and like to think.

This is the most boring,pretentious,pointless movie I have ever seen.As someone who ranks Boogie Nights,Magnolia, Punch-Drunk Love & There Will Be Blood as his favorite movies, I can say with full confidence that this movie was utter trash. It's the Emperor's new clothes
