"The Master" is a very complex and challenging film. I would suspect that for most moviegoers it will be hard if not impossible to enjoy. PTA has come a long way since "Boogie Nights". I would say he has gone from a good movie maker to an artist. And somtimes the best art is not easy to look at or digest- almost impossible to summarize- and takes time and patience to come to terms with. Thats why it is true to life.
