A timeless, singular, kinky, charming, impeccable masterpiece from Paul Thomas Anderson. Arguably the best movie of 2017. Certainly the best candidate for Best Picture. From its lush visuals to its nuanced characterization, it brims with single-minded confidence and presents receptive audience members with the precious gift of cinematic bliss.
Clever, sophisticated, and utterly charming, Trouble in Paradise marks a quantum leap forward in the art of cinema. Lubitsch is a genius, pure and simple, and the Hays code is once again proven to be nothing less than a crime against humanity, robbing us of decades of great films like this.
