Written, Directed, and Shot by Paul Thomas Anderson
Starring Daniel Day-Lewis
Original Score by Johnny Greenwood

December 25th

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNsiQMeSvMk

Set in the glamour of 1950s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Leslie Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcockís life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love.

I'm excited.

And looks like PTA is also the new hot cinematographer in town. Could be the "debut" of the year.

There are few things I will watch solely because of the actor(s) in it - I'm usually more interested in the actual crew (director, editor, cinematographer etc...). However, Daniel Day-Lewis' participation is enough to make me excited about this.

Actually, the trailer does a good job of selling this. Looks like a great date movie.

I saw an advanced screening. It was of course excellent. Compared to the rest of PTA's filmography, it's a minor work in scope ... very much just based in one house. It's much lighter in tone than the trailer suggests, and with many Hitchcock-esque moments. DDL is great, Vicky Krieps outdoes him. It's a slow start but the movie turns quite fun in a weird way, and like The Master, lots going on thematically. TONS and TONS of Greenwood's score which is his best yet. It feels like a fully scored silent film at times. Beautifully shot with an uncredited cinematographer. I will be buying the 4K UHD blu and watching it many many times... no question.

Because I love lists, here is a list. You'll notice many 10's. Keep in mind that probably more than half of the movies I would give a "10" to at all are between PTA and Leone.

1. The Master - 10
2. Boogie Nights - 10
3. Magnolia - 10
4. There Will Be Blood - 10
5. Punch-Drunk Love - 9
6. Phantom Thread - 8
7. Hard Eight - 7.5
8. Inherent Vice - 7
9. Junun - 6

Greenwood's first Oscar on it's way!

and hopefully PTA's, at least for screenwriting.

Any of you New Yorkers smart enough to go see this now that it's out?

I think.... I think... you will really love this movie. There's a certain person that will consider this PTA's masterpiece so far, and I feel you're that person.

Huh. Better than The Master? A tall order, but welcome if true.

I just saw this movie and found it excruciating, which means all you fanboys will probably love it.
