THE MASTER
December 30, 2013  | By David Bianculli

The Movie Channel, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

At the moment, Joaquin Phoenix is getting raves for his starring role as the man obsessed with his computer’s operating system in Her. Last year, he got raves for his role in this movie, playing an aimless war veteran who falls under the wing of a charismatic religious leader, played by Philip Seymour Hoffman. Or, what I said about Phoenix goes for Amy Adams as well: She got raves for her role in The Master (playing Hoffman’s wife) a year ago, and right now she’s getting rave reviews for her role in… Her. (As well as her role in American Hustle, but that has less symmetry for this particular entry.)
