    Phantom Thread

    ★★★★★

    Phantom Thread was iconic on arrival. It has everything going for it. Interesting characters, snappy dialogue, flawless acting, the best soundtrack in recent memory, not to mention that it is, simply put, extremely odd. The film will be memorable to anyone that watches it due to the last ten minutes that escalate things in a way that you either love or loathe. As for myself, I distinctly remember grinning ear to ear the second Reynolds starts chewing.

    That being said,…

    “I need more from you. I’m gonna need more from you.”

    Upgrading Personal Shopper to 5 stars.

The universe itself is of course extremely well thought through but mostly in terms of how the information is gradually absorbed by the reader rather than through exposition dumps. Unfortunately this film lacks for the ending and in order to make it palpable for a blockbuster crowd it must exposite. Think this film will leave many people wondering what the fuss is. Once we have the second part though it should all fall into place. Fingers crossed.

    For now it is just a god tier exercise  in production design

    The Lighthouse

    Don’t want to succumb to the festival fever too soon by calling a film a masterpiece, but this is a masterpiece. Hot damn. Looks amazing for a start, rare to see a B&W film so fearless in its use of black. 

    Has an incredibly haunting foghorn score that is such a perfect throwback and is so so overbearing. Eggers excels with dialogue and character. Listening to this film sounds like poetry even as characters are yelling profanities at each other.…
