È Stato il Figlio & The Master

È Stato il Figlio, Italian, by Daniele Cipri, “home game”, big ovation, story of hard up family in Palermo Sicilly, shades of Tornatore, well made, funny & sad, really liked it.
Rating: 8/10.

The Master, USA, by Paul Thomas Anderson, one of the biggies, with Joachim Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, good acting, story about Scientology, evidently director showed it to Tom Cruise & he said that they were still friends, good photography, for me it was too disjointed & excessive in parts, long ovation, divided opinion.
Rating: 6/10.
