Thank you for such a comprehensive perspective on PTA. I plan to re-watch his work with your analysis in mind!

Thank you for this. PTA is above all, a humanist. No other director offers such a exhilarating combination of Kubrick level cerebral artistry and cynicism with such sincere humanism. This is especially true of his last two masterpieces, TWBB and The Master. Perhaps only David Chase's 86 hours of The Sopranos can match it.

You've written one of the best analysis of PTA's work I've ever read. Thank you for this. Well written, and I have a feeling PTA might nod a lot while reading it.

Yeah, so 'primordial' actually comes way the hell before 'prehuman'.
