Question: Your choice to film in 65mm, appropriate to the period, obviously. Does it matter if your audience doesn't see that, because presumably only a minority of the audience are going to see it in 70mmn
Paul Thomas Anderson: Yes, no, I mean, does it matter? If you are in that kind of thing, you'll probably love it. You know, you’ll be able to feel a slight difference if you know, but it's ultimately No. I mean, listen, I've loved movies I've watched on my phone, I hate to say, and I loved moves I've seen in theatres
I mean, it's a hard thing now a days, and hopefully, you know, the people that loved to go to movie theatres, loved to go movie theatres, and we kind of hopefully presented this option, that if you wanna dig it this way, it's there for you. I prefer it. I enjoy it. I think it's a more well balanced meal, just in terms of the way that it kinda comes through the projector and the light and umm, and things moving around, and..... I prefer it. But certainly does not mean you are not gonna like the movie if you have to see it in any other way. It also doesn’t mean you gonna like it any more
Question: Can't imagine what “The Master” would be like on a phone
Paul Thomas Andersson: [Laughs] Actually no, hopefully not too bad. Shouldn't matter, I mean, I remember like seeing, like these guys, like hovered around in a garage watching "Saving Private Ryan" on this like little teeny black and white TV, and these guys were just loving the film in a parking garage in South America, and they were completely in to it. They didn’t need it on a big screen, they didn’t need whatever HiFi sound and all that. They are just digging the film
THE MASTER AT BIFFEN 17. FEBRUARY 2013
Owner of the "Biffen" cinema Mr. Orla Nielsen: Am I on now? Welcome to the cinema in Aalborg and in the moment we're showing T. P. Anderson's [sic] film "The Master". Not only do we show it, we also showing it in the original 70mm version. And we're extremely proud and happy about that. We can now only hope that the audience will come and see it in the real 70mm format.
Girl with yellow shirt: I'm going to see "The Master" because it seems like a really interesting story. I don't know what it's about from viewing the trailers. And also because it'll be show in 70mm and it will only do that here and at another place in Copenhagen and the screen should be perfect, because it's a curved screen. And the director had a vision with this format, that it had a significance, so I'm really excited to see what effect it will have on the story and the whole experience.
Woman in cinema: It's truly a great visual story. I think...it's a flat image but the image is sculptural. The opening scene itself, with the helmet. It looks like silver but it's completely sculptural, as if you dragged into the image. I think that's amazing. Also the sand sculpture. It should be hard to see it, you know it's a woman but even the nipples are completely in detail. I think it's the image quality that makes it so amazing.
Man in cinema: It's an amazing film, an amazing story. There is some footage of water and I'm completely certain that it's only on 70mm you can capture the waves like that, made by the ship. Then there's some CUs of the faces and it's really amazing. Also because of the great performances. They are all great. It's not a movie where you think "Ah, there was that actor who was embarrassing". They are all great. So, it's all pretty perfect.
“In The Master, Paul Thomas Anderson has shown eloquently that 65mm works incredibly well for an intimate, character-driven film, not just those with epic backdrops. He recognizes the emotional power and depth of the large format, and delved into it in a way that is very rarely done. In so doing, he has advanced the power and beauty of 70mm storytelling and elevated moviemaking to exciting new heights.”
