“Look, I mean, whatever, people are going to draw their own conclusions, and right now there are heated conclusions, and the Tom and Katie situation has exacerbated that. It’s going to be a controversial movie. But it’s a tour de force. I hope what doesn’t get lost is how wonderful the filmmaking is,” Weinstein continued.Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, The Master stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams. To accommodate the shift of The Master, the Weinstein Co. is moving Brad Pitt crime drama Killing Them Softly from September 21st to November 30th (hmm… priorities). Directed by Andrew Dominik, the film is based on the 1974 novel Cogan’s Trade by George V. Higgins. Have a look at the trailer: Judging by the trailer, it seems to me that this film will attempt to expose the truth (hence the controversial tone) about this so-called religion, and if I got that right, I will welcome it wholeheartedly. More on that particular subject after the film’s release. What’s you opinion?
