The Master
($39.99 Blu-ray, $29.98 DVD; Anchor Bay)

Troubled veteran Freddie (Joaquin Phoenix) falls under the influence of L. Ron Hubbard-like guru Lancaster Dodd (Philip Seymour Hoffman) in this latest effort from Paul Thomas Anderson. It’s as sprawling and dramatic as There Will Be Blood, although with fewer violent outbursts. Extras include 20 minutes’ worth of outtakes and additional scenes, a brief behind-the-scenes, and John Huston’s WWII veterans documentary, Let There Be Light.
