Cigarettes & Red Vines is proud to present the very first installment of “Making The Master,” our brand new series of in-depth interviews with some of the minds behind “The Master.” Between now and February 26th (the day of the film’s Blu-ray release), we’ll be talking to many of the production’s principal players and today we’re kicking things off with an exclusive interview with the man himself, Paul Thomas Anderson.
Paul Thomas Anderson and The Master
An hour-long Q&A with the director of one of this year’s best films. Enjoy Paul Thomas Anderson sharing his ideas on film and filmmaking, his process, the making of The Master, and so much more.
The director tells CBS This Morning that yes, his The Master is loosely based on L Ron Hubbard and Dianetics and “investigating what that movement was”. Paul Thomas Anderson also fielded a question about Harvey Weinstein, who will push the buttons on The Master‘s Oscar campaign as awards season warms up: “He’s a bull in a china shop — but he’s your bull, and it’s great to have him”.
