    Oscars: 'The Master,' 'Silver Linings Playbook' & 'Argo' Lead Wide Open Awards Season Field

    Having covered the Oscar race in quite a bit of detail last year, it's fair to say that it wasn't the most exciting race in history. It became clear from early September onward that "The Artist" was set to be a juggernaut, and as the film swept the precursors in the run-up, it was clear that nothing...

    Stream Jonny Greenwood's Score To 'The Master,' Plus Listen To 'Dredd' Score In Full

    Almost as anticipated as Paul Thomas Anderson's 'The Master" in general -- and given that only this morning, this writer got a death threat for daring to give the film a 'B,' that's pretty damn anticipated -- is the music of the film. 2007's "There Will Be Blood" saw Anderson draft Radiohead member ...

    New NSFW Clip From Paul Thomas Anderson's 'The Master' Announces Alamo Drafthouse Screening In Austin Next Week

    A scientology audit? Not quite. More like a Rorschach-like free-association test where Freddie Quell (played by Joaquin Phoenix) gives off his impressions of ink blots and reveals his strange and idiosyncratic character. It's another exclusive (and somewhat NSFW) clip from Paul Thomas ...
