Phantom Thread

Phantom Thread

On the one hand, this is everything I ever want in a film. A sensationally gifted director at the top of his game choosing a subject to explore, diving deep into the details of that world, and populating it with the best actors in the game. I could have watched this film for ten hours for those reasons. Moment to moment, it's exquisite.

On the other hand, it's a pity that the best PTA could come up with for this whole endeavor was the story of a man who yearns for nothing but perfection in his work and a woman who yearns for seemingly nothing but a man. No matter how well it's done, we've seen it a million times and need it now less than ever.

But man it's done so, so well.
