Speaking of Linlater, I recently watched "Before Sunrise" for the first time and was pretty disappointed. Yeah it's fairly realistic but the 2 main characters are pretty damn unappealing. Also he's apparently taking the "Boyhood" gimmick a step further: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merrily_We_Roll_Along_
The scene I'm referring to in "The Master":
I like "Punch Drunk Love" but that fight scene definitely isn't the type of awkward realism I'm referring to. Yeah you could argue that it's all due to adrenaline but it's still pretty OTT.
