Fucking bonkers how good this film is. The entire run-time my entire thought process is as simple as “PTA is the best director of all-time”. Every single thing about Phantom Thread screams impressive to me, like every component that makes this up is yelling at me to appreciate their individual advantages. From the top to the bottom this is just perfection. No one does romance (and obsession and infatuation) like PTA. Not to mention this is the single funniest movie ever and home to some of the most hilarious lines of dialogue in cinema. Just absolutely fucking wicked how great this shit is.

I don't mind the premise as despite most of them being pretty trash, I've got a soft spot for disaster and survival movies but Virus failed to really grasp my attention at any point in the film.

There are things we didn't see that I would've loved to have…
Tough to immediately sum up my thoughts given it's length and will take me at least a month to soak this bad boy in fully. Very likely I see this again before it leaves cinemas so hopefully I've got some idea of a succinct thought process by then. My main takeaways from this watch are that of complete confidence that this is, at the very least fucking incredible, Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Al Pacino specifically are award worthy performances, though…
