Even amongst its most wrenching scenes of unfettered anger and broken loyalty, a volatile sensuality nonetheless invades every frame of Paul Thomas Anderson’s arresting “The Master.” Populated by characters certain in their sexual and loving instincts yet stubborn in claiming responsibility for them, the film holds an unseen, persuasive force just off-screen to keep each on edge, never fully comfortable in their own skin. However, while the film’s narrative may point to faith as a cause and cure, the end result focuses instead on the reverberating pain in one’s past, and the oblique, often-maddening ways it manifests in the present through incredible performances and direction.

And while the bigger thematic arc of the film is beginning to show its colors, it seems pretty clear to us that Joaquin Phoenix is being audited in this new clip from the film.

You have to hand it to Paul Thomas Anderson. Five years ago, the director unveiled his last film, "There Will Be Blood," as a surprise at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, skipping the established festival circuit entirely for a film that turned out to be the best received of 2007. It seemed, briefly, that his follow-up, "The Master," might have a more conventional release strategy for an awards-type film, with news leaking out that the film was set to premiere at Venice before going on to TIFF, perhaps suggesting a more conventional type of marketing push from distributors The Weinstein Company.

One of the biggest question marks and most exciting prospects of this coming fall is the potential return of New York writer-director James Gray who, after 2008's underrated drama "Two Lovers," reunites with Joaquin Phoenix and teams with Marion Cotillard and Jeremy Renner for an untitled 1920s set drama formerly known as "Low Life."

Does the overt happiness from the first two teaser trailers make you feel shame? Do the films of Paul Thomas Anderson make you unduly excited? Do you enjoy the performances of Joaquin Phoenix beyond all reasonable health? Does Philip Seymour Hoffman make your pupils dilate? Do you get occasional twitches of your muscles from the music of Jonny Greenwood? Does the knowledge that this film was shot in 65mm make you impulsive to buy a ticket?

In an age with announcements for teasers of trailers for trailers, we have to say we're big fans of how Paul Thomas Anderson and The Weinstein Company are going about the campaign for their new film, "The Master." A brief clip/teaser arrived during Cannes, on the same day that footage from the film was screened on the Croisette, and now, unannounced in the middle of the night, a second teaser trailer has cropped up on YouTube, as noticed by Badass Digest, and it's pretty swell.
