“The Master” Paul Thomas Anderson

Terri Gross interviewed director Paul Thomas Anderson on Fresh Air, about his new film The Master, staring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams.

Highlights from the interview include: Anderson’s father Ernie Anderson was the voice of ABC, and a Cleveland television late-night horror movie host known as “Ghoulardi.” Mr. Anderson attempts to imitate his father’s voiceover work, does so poorly. Why The Master was shot on crotchety 65 mm wide high-resolution film. Mr. Anderson has a sense of humor. Turner Movie Classics play perpetually in Mr. Anderson’s house like Norma Desmond Muzak.

Here is the interview:
