(2017) dir Paul Thomas Anderson w/Daniel Day-Lewis, Vicky Krieps, Lesley Manville [130 min; DCP]
Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest masterpiece is a disarmingly simple affair. A story about the obstinate iconoclast Reynolds Woodcock (Day-Lewis), a fashion designer in post-WWII London, who finally meets his match in the form of Alma Elson (Krieps), a young woman who catches his eye. Watched over by Reynolds’ trusty sister (Manville), the couple develop a loving, if idiosyncratic, relationship.

“Up until now, ‘The Master’ was Anderson’s best film, but ‘Phantom Thread’ is also, in many ways, an improvement on it. . . . With ‘The Master’ and ‘Phantom Thread,’ Anderson tells the same story—in the first film, as tragedy; in the second, as farce. What’s remarkable is that the farce turns out to be the more tragic of the two, because the subject of ‘Phantom Thread’ is love, the tumultuous power of love, and the proximity of creation and destruction in art and love alike.” – Richard Brody, The New Yorker

“Wraps around you, like a delicately scented cashmere shawl woven from music and color and astonishing faces.” – Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times

“This is a profoundly, intensely, extravagantly personal film.” – A.O. Scott, New York Times

“This devilishly funny and luxuriantly sensuous film is so successful as entertainment that it’s hard to stop and notice the extreme degree of craft that went into its construction.” – Dana Stevens, Slate
