In the years after WWII, an American intellectual creates a religion. When he meets a troubled drifter, he invites the man to help him spread the new faith. As their congregation increases, the drifter begins to question the religion he once accepted and the mentor who gave his life direction.

" It is a brilliantly conceived and powerfully realized work of art, with complex characters, exquisite images and ambiguously big ideas."
- Joe Williams, St. Louis Post Dispatch
"Nothing as big and strange and right as The Master should feel as effortless as it does. That's not the same as saying that it's light. It's actually heavy. It weighs more than any American film from this or last year. It's the sort of movie that young men aspiring to write the Great American Novel never actually write."
- Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"This is a rapturous cinematic experience, a spellbinding expression of shrouded ideas and exposed talent, top to bottom."
- Steve Persall, Tampa Bay Times
"It's also one of the great movies of the year - an ambitious, challenging, and creatively hot-blooded but cool toned project that picks seriously at knotty ideas about American personality, success, rootlessness, master-disciple dynamics, and father-son mutually assured destruction."
- Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"It is a movie about the lure and folly of greatness that comes as close as anything I've seen recently to being a great movie. There will be skeptics, but the cult is already forming. Count me in."
- A.O. Scott, New York Times
