!![[Film/TheMaster Film]]:
* AcclaimedFlop: Critics loved the film, but it only grossed $20 million worldwide with a $35 million budget.
* AwardSnub: Not being nominated for Best Original Screenplay, Cinematography, Director or Picture.
** Its score by Johnny Greenwood was also seen as something in contention for recognition, but was likewise overlooked.
* CriticalDissonance: While the film has been acclaimed by critics (scoring an 86% on both RottenTomatoes and Metacritic), it has received an extremely polarized reaction from audiences (as evidenced by the 60% and 6.8 scores on their respective sites).
* {{Tearjerker}}: When Freddie first talks about Doris and much later, when the Master sings to Freddie.
