David Finkle: First Nighter: Who's Afraid of Albee's Virginia Woolf 50 Years On?
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Will everyone who saw the original production of Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? please raise his or her hand? Just what I expected: Not that many hand-raisers left to acknowledge their presence at an historic theater event unforgettably starring Ute Hagen, Arthur Hill, George Grizzard and Melinda Dillon and directed by Alan Schneider. I only ask because those of us who were there find it difficult to dismiss the occasion from our minds. That is, we keep it present if we're not members of the Pulitzer Prize board, who denied the award to the work and have thus forever stained their annual choices. By the way, full disclosure: The scathing drama was the first Broadway production I saw when I moved to Manhattan and, in my innocence, concluded that from then on New York theater-going was going to be a glorious sequence of equally demanding and gratifying experiences Thus those of us on the hallowed site back in that day need to be forgiven if we indulge in ...

There Will Be Dud: Paul Thomas Anderson’s First Mediocre Movie
The New Republic - over 4 years
The Master WELL, AT LEAST IT’S PRETENTIOUS, and that’s a start in an age when too many films are hardly trying. In a devastating bargain with us and themselves, most modern American movies are content with seeking to make a little money and re-telling some same old story. Nobody could accuse The Master of being confined in those dead ends. Yet its distributors, the Weinstein brothers, know that nothing yet has altered the American dream of making a lot of money while being sensational and digging into our nervous system and the last chance that we have for existence and hope. Look at Apple. There was no film I was looking forward to more than Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master, and now it is here. It’s a mess; it’s pretentious; it is thundery with dismay. It may be acclaimed in the anxiety that grips many film critics. But the best and most interesting thing to be said about it is that a young master has gone off the deep end and found no water in the pool. So it makes you laugh out l ...
