The Master‘s been out of (most) American theaters for, say, at least a couple of weeks, but the discussion and debate rages on.

If as much hasn’t already been made clear, what follows is decisively in the latter camp.
Following their premiere in Melbourne, Australia, the Astor Theater held an in-depth, one-hour discussion with the aforementioned (pardon) Master himself; of course, a video of this event is provided for your pleasure.
