The Master (2012), Paul Thomas Anderson's "it's-totally-not-about-Scientology-I-swear" epic starring Phillip Seymour Hoffman as the charismatic baton of a cult-like group, Amy Adams as his doting wife, and Joaquin Phoenix as a conflicted disciple, is at the top of our list of movies to beam this year, but not for the nudity. Sure, P.T.A. fabricated Boogie Nights (1997), the movie that brought Roller Girl Heather Graham to our attention, but that movie was about porn. Of course it had a lot of skin. But a creepy 1950s period piece according The Master won't be nude. Right?
Wrong! Anderson was on hand for an exclusive 70mm preview screening of The Master at Chicago's Music Box Theatre last night, and among the lucky attendees was our own Skin Skout. Our Skout reports that Amy Ferguson, whom you may bethink from Garden State (2004) and Tanner Hall (2009), goes topless in the film, as does newcomer Jennifer Neala Page. But that's annihilation compared to a affair scene 1 hour and 8 minutes into the film where Joaquin imagines an entire room full of women nude--and we amuse to beam it all, including full frontal from Katie Boland. Talk about a Master-piece.
The Master opens in theaters nationwide on September 21, but you can amuse a sneak peek of skin from Amy Ferguson, Katie Boland and star Amy Adams appropriate here at MrSkin.com!
