The 2012 movie The Master was not the worst movie I ever watched. It absolutely was not the most egregious method I ever used to squander two or more irreplaceable hours of my life. It definitely was not the most pretentious piece of art house, inbred, self-congratulating, hippie, Hollywood swill ever to emerge from the entertainment industry.
But it was close.
In the immortal words of Opus, «Bad beyond any previous understanding of badness. Well. Maybe not that bad. But, Lord, it wasn’t good.»
If you watch only one movie this year, be absolutely certain it isn’t this one.
Watch Argo instead. Excellently done movie.
