“The writer-director [of Punch-Drunk Love] was Paul Thomas Anderson. ‘That’s a cool name,’ I thought. ‘It’s a cool name, could be a rapper or something.
So I run home and I watched the only other available movie of his on Netflix (because I’m a millennial), The Master.
“It was the only ever time I had the visceral reaction I did while watching The Dark Knight six years earlier. About forty minutes into the film, there’s a processing scene, an interrogation of sorts, Philip Seymour Hoffman’s character says to Joaquin Phoenix that he has to answer everything he asks of him honestly and without blinking. I was floored.
“The scene contained two masters at work, open, vulnerable, in Mr. Phoenix’s case, physically self-loathing. To this day, I don’t know a scene that feels so intensely honest… The scene was somehow messy, and the most direct piece of acting I’ve ever seen.” - Timothée Chalamet, National Board of Review Gala Acceptance Speech, 2018
