We may recognize Owen Wilson as that pouty lipped lead guy in a number of comedies, but he can hold his own when it pertains to the more dramatic roles.

Though Paul Thomas Anderson may be revered as one of the greatest working filmmakers of our day, his films have rarely been profitable. At best his films do a little better than break even (many don't even do that), which makes it that much harder for the director to get his projects going. Recently, Anderson struggled to find financing for The Master until Megan...

The Master: Movie Review

The-Master
The Master, Paul Thomas Anderson's follow-up to There Will Be Blood came with a lot of misconceptions. Is it about Scientology? Yes and no. Does it deconstruct Scientology? Not at all.
