Paul Schrader is a 76 year old filmmaker who has been making movies since 1978. I have avoided many of his films because they are often full of suffering and violence. But MASTER GARDENER is much less so; it even has a happy ending. It’s a slow burn of a film in which I could feel the strong emotions of Joel Edgerton as the main character even though he keeps those emotions in check. In short, MASTER GARDNER is the fine work of a masterful writer-director. (Kahala Mall Theaters only)
