The trailers for P.T. Anderson's The Master are almost like short films themselves. Rather than just showing a bunch of quick clips from the entire thing, each seems to give us a preview of a specific moment or theme that the narrative explores.
The newest trailer (above), which was tailor-made for last night's advanced screening at the Music Box Theatre in Chicago, is all about love and how Phillip Seymour Hoffman's character believes it affects his pupils.
It's both mysterious and intriguing, but mainly makes us a little jealous we missed that surprise screening in Santa Monica last week.
