"Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go on an overnight drunk, and in 10 days I’m going to set out to find the shark that ate my friend and destroy it. Anyone who wants to join me is more than welcome." - The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004)

She was no one”s daughter now. She was no one. Not Arya, not Weasel, not Nan nor Arry nor Squab, not even Lumpyhead. She was only some girl who ran with a dog by day, and dreamed of wolves by night.

During the jail cell scene in Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master where Joaquin Phoenix’s Freddie Quell unleashes a fit of rage, Phoenix actually breaks a real toilet. His actions were entirely improvised. Due to the historical past of the building where the scene took place, the toilet was also considered “historical”. Phoenix had no intentions to break the toilet, nor did he think it was possible (x).

The Master was the first motion picture in 16 years to be filmed on 65mm format using Panavision’s System 65 camera. Around 85% of the film was shot in this format, with the rest shot on 35mm. The last full-length motion picture to be shot in 65/70mm was Kenneth Branagh’s 1996 adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The decision to shoot in 65mm came from a desire to replicate the look of photos taken by vintage Pressman cameras, which use large-format 4x5-inch film. This also led to the use of the narrower 1.85:1 aspect ratio (65mm has a native aspect ratio of 2.2:1). Director Paul Thomas Anderson initially suggested shooting the film in VistaVision, and test footage was shot in that format, but the shallow-focus effect was not pronounced enough (x).
