Remembering The Master

Last year I read Lawrence Wright’s riveting, frightening book, “Going Clear,” which goes deep inside the world of the Church of Scientology. When I finished, I was inspired to re-watch P.T. Anderson’s “The Master,” which was ostensibly based on a Scientology-like cult. In the course of watching, I took these screen captures of the many gorgeous, haunting close-ups of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman in the role of Lancaster Dodd.

What a remarkable performance in a truly remarkable film. Thinking back now, I can’t recall a Hoffman performance that didn’t leave a mark. He was truly one of the most gifted actors of our time. Rest in peace, Philip Seymour Hoffman.
