Phantom Thread (2017)
Viewing Feb '19 ///
Paul Thomas Anderson again exemplifies his tremendous ability to conjure, develop and expertly deliver an idea in a way that no other writer-director can. Aligning us with Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis), we understand the world as he does, engrossing us into the world of high fashion in the 50s, and critically dissect his psychology as an artist, troubled by his childhood. Intrigued by his conflicting nature, we edge closer to the screen as Alma (Vicky Krieps) learns how to love him, and are left speechless as the characters twist, turn, and defy all expectations.
