With his latest film, Paul Thomas Anderson paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey and the women who keeps his world running. Phantom Thread is Paul Thomas Anderson‘s eighth movie, and his second collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis,, who has said this picture will be his last. Set in 1950’s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames. Alma (Vicky Krieps) becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love.
“A perverse psychological fable of unchecked ego and unhinged desire. That’s a partial catalog, and one that can’t quite capture how bizarre this movie is. Or how bizarrely true to life — to art, to love, to itself — it feels.”—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
“It’s an enchanting, eventually mischievous meditation on the lengths to which we go to control and camouflage our most intimate, undefended desires.”—Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
