Phantom Thread 2017

So very boring, as good an actor as DDL is this film just isn’t entertaining at all.

Good lord... Those two were super obsessed to each other.
This movie was a little creepy.

Had to take a 2 hour train journey to see this film and I think it paid off.

Phantom Thread is a glorious film to add to the Paul Thomas Anderson collection with charming performances from both Daniel Day Lewis and Vicky Krieps as the two leads. The story is told with such splendour that every shot from the film is exquisite, making the film even more delightful as it goes on (and apparently there was no DP hired which is crazy). The film did lose me a bit towards the end due to it’s lengthy run-time and simple story but Johnny Greenwood’s score pulled me back into 1950’s London. The last 10 minutes were outstanding in rounding out the story of Reynolds and Alma, which only solidifies Daniel Day Lewis as possibly one of the greatest actors on screen.

This comes across as a well made exploration into a fascinating true story about an eccentric historical figure. Except that it isn't true. So then it's a well made exploration into an eccentric fictional character. But, without much happening most of the movie, you'd think it must be leading up to something in the end, to give it some substance. And, the substance turns out to be... poison omelettes. Which sounds much more intriguing than it actually is. After watching this, I just wanted an omelette.

Oh boy, what a slow-paced and boring movie. The two leads were super obsessed with each other and towards the ending, really creepy. Also, the relationship was super unhealthy and made no sense! At certain scenes we all looked with disbelief at each other in the theater, just so stupid. Plus, the movie was too long and the only highlights were all the costumes (so pretty!) and the rare but beautiful sass of Cyril.

4/10 I do regret seeing it and I consider the time wasted, but oh well!

This movie was horrible it was long and utterly boring, i honestly can;t see why it should be nominated for best picture. I love DDL and his acting was good but other than that it was truly horrible, he knew she was poisoning him at the end so why stay? Did he really love her? i was happy when the end credits came.

Phantom Thread is an exquisite jazz soliloquy that you adore not for what's in it, but for how it makes you feel. It is a masterly crafted suit that makes you feel like a better person the moment it envelopes you.

The writing is seamless, the cinematography stylish and the soundtrack, my god, Jonny Greenwood's soundtrack is tailor-made to this film. The music in Phantom Thread has a more important role and performs it better than most human actors in lesser films. Speaking of performances, Daniel Day Lewis's swan song appearance is a high note in his career and, while not particularly a stretch for him, it's certainly as elegant and captivating as a Christian Dior corset.

The only flaw in this latest piece in the string of Anderson's successes is the length, for like an imperfectly cut wedding dress, Phantom Thread drags a little towards the end, though not enough to tear us away from its elegance.

Interesting idea, strung out longer than it should have been. The acting was great, but the pacing and writing felt like a drag.

Poetic cinema, and It was shot without a DP yet every frame is a painting !!

Relationship between main characters is pure mommy issues, Reynolds Woodcock is lacking the mother figure so the role alternate between his sister Cyril ( fearless strong exercises authority ) and Lover/ Muse Alma (loving caring possessive)

So in conclusion, phantom thread is about mother-child relationship and it should be right up there with I, Tonya and Lady Bird

This film had such brilliant moments that is unbelievable how ridiculous it gets when we reach into the third act

I'd comment this movie with only one sentence: is love a sickness or being sick is to love?

By the way, great movie. Great Lewis as always, I just love every way he behaves behind the camera... what an actor!

  • Reynolds has made my dreams come true. And I have given him what he desires most in return.
  • And what's that?
  • Every piece of me.

The setting of this movie was great. The Story and the cast were very good too. I also dont think that this movie was too long. If you love the master and there will be blood, then you will have fun with this one. 8/10 Points

This is a beautiful film. Beautiful clothes, beautiful people, beautiful scenery. The three lead parts were exquisitely performed. Vicky Krieps was a new discovery for me but her quiet and powerful presence brought strength and enigma to her role. I'll be watching for her in the future. I give this film an 8 (beautiful) out of 10. (And, I learned so much about how to keep a man.)

I wasn't sure I would like this movie but I had to see it to see (possibly) Daniel Day-Lewis' last performance and, obviously, Paul Thomas Anderson. Man, I really got hooked right away. It is shot beautifully. The piano score was wonderful. DDL was fantastic and interesting but the real surprise is how great Vicky Krieps was. Alma is such a fascinating character. To just pick up her life to live with Reynolds. Trying to break his tough shell. Even going as far to poison him, that was crazy! This isn't going to be for everyone but this is a beautiful film.

P.S. This movie has some hilarious scenes. I might not be able to butter toast without thinking of this movie.
