    I finally got to see The Master today, and as I was reflecting on the film, I noticed something.

    The scene from the trailer, in which Freddie screams at Dodd “I know you’re trying to calm me down but just say something that’s true!” was not in the film. Also, the scene in which Freddie angrily walked down the sidewalk wearing his suit and tie also appeared to be absent.

    Does anybody know if these scenes, both of which looked very juicy in the trailer, were cut for time or content? Or am I just not thinking hard enough?

    Great catch Trent.

    PTA had final cut, meaning he got to say what the length was. Trailers of course are created months before the movie is released, and often before the film is done. Likely for whatever reasons (length, rendundancy, pacing) he removed it from the final version, without caring much that it had been in thje trailer.

    I had the same question too at first, but it wasn’t until the amazingness washed over me that it hit me.

    The teaser trailer scene with Phoenix and the officer wasn’t in the film either. I was looking forward to seeing how that fit into the actual film, and it never made it in the final cut. That scene started the heavy buzz going on Phoenix, so it was surprising that it wasn’t included.

    Those scenes will be on the DVD/Blu-ray as special features. I heard that those scenes will total up to 20 minutes.

    I saw the film back in August/September when it came out. I had the same exact thought about the “tell me something that is true!” scene between Phoenix and Hoffman. I was expecting it; waiting for it. I thought that it would come when the two men were in ajoining jail cells, but it never came.

    The interview scene is in the movie but an alternate version after the initial one seen in the ad campaign. The jail scene in the final movie is the first take but the subsequent takes were used for the campaign. Paul cut and envisioned the campaign himself. What’s in the completed movie is the completed movie.

    PTA said the trailers are the trailers, and the movie is the movie.

    We get that already. That doesn’t mean that we can’t still speculate/discuss what wasn’t included in the final cut.

    Anyway the film was still the best film of the year…… in my opinion.

    Agreed!

    Interestingly enough, I just finished reading this article (that was written back in October) about why Anderson is actually declining as a filmmaker. It’s well written and well argued, but I pretty much disagree with nearly all of it.
