The most anticipated film of the year is going to land in New York, but bear with me (or fast forward to below). OK, so it’s kind of funny. If you’ve been paying attention to film festival politics this year—and if you haven’t, we don’t blame you—beef has been growing between the Wal-Mart-esque Toronto International Film Festival and the mom n’ pop shop of Telluride (yes, that’s basically this differences in their size, scope and approach, sorry). The long and short is that TIFF has essentially been upset in the last few years that Telluride has “stolen” world premieres by sneak premiering them early at their festival (Telluride doesn’t call anything a premiere and announces their secret line-up the day the festival begins, which is pretty ballsy and bold).

Musicians Turned Composers
Increasingly over the last two decades, musicians and bands have looked upon the film score and seen a rare opportunity to challenge themselves in a new medium, and also to gain a break from non-stop touring. The results have been an eclectic, unconventional bounty. Last month, Mica Levi of Micachu and the Shapes delivered an iconic three-note theme to Jonathan Glazer’s “Under The Skin” that rattled the senses, while Devonte Hynes (Lightspeed Champion, Blood Orange) struck a dreamy pop tone of high-school nostalgia with his score to Gia Coppola’s directorial debut, “Palo Alto.”

Jonny Greenwood Paul Thomas Anderson
While Jon Brion and Michael Penn wrote some terrific film scores for Paul Thomas Anderson over the years ("Magnolia," "Punch Drunk Love"), it’s now fairly difficult to separate the filmmaker from his Jonny Greenwood-penned scores only two films deep into their collaboration. Greenwood obviously scored “The Master” and the upcoming “Inherent Vice,” but it all started with the Daniel Day-Lewis-starring “There Will Be Blood” that PTA saw as a type of horror.

Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice" is one step closer to being finished, and we'll let Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood explain: "I finished recording a soundtrack last week for Paul Thomas Anderson's next film 'Inherent Vice.' We recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, led by Clio Gould - they were fantastic," he told Sinfini Music. So, hooray for that. But could PTA already be brewing another film? Read More »

"The Master" is still rolling out around the world, which means Paul Thomas Anderson is still doing press, which means there are still morsels from the filmmaker to ponder, turn over and get excited about.

Almost as anticipated as Paul Thomas Anderson's 'The Master" in general -- and given that only this morning, this writer got a death threat for daring to give the film a 'B,' that's pretty damn anticipated -- is the music of the film. 2007's "There Will Be Blood" saw Anderson draft Radiohead member Jonny Greenwood to write the score, and the result was a masterpiece: a dischordant, hugely exciting soundtrack that proved to be one of the most memorable of the century so far. And Greenwood's back for the director's follow up, his brilliant (but in our opinion, flawed) period drama starring Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

No movie has been more keenly anticipated by cinephiles in 2012 than Paul Thomas Anderson’s “The Master.” The filmmaker has been one of cinema’s most exciting new voices for a decade and a half now, but reached a new level of adulation with his last picture, ”There Will Be Blood,” which won awards and topped critical lists the world over five years ago. As such, the genesis and production of “The Master” was avidly followed, not least because the film was long ago said to revolve around a fictionalized surrogate of L. Ron Hubbard and his ever-controversial Scientology, and because Anderson had shot the film on 70mm film, the first major production to do so since Kenneth Branagh’s “Hamlet” in 1996.
