Phantom Thread (2017)
Written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. Starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Lesley Manville and Camilla Rutherford.
Thoughts about the trailer? Will you be seeing this in theatres or stream it later?
Comes out December 25th in the US and in February elsewhere.

According to DDL, this will be his final movie. I'm sure the critics will be watching intently for any hint of that finality in his performance here.

Behind the scenes at a couture house, of course I'm going to see it. Not really sure about the female lead actress though, is she suppose to be unremarkable?

I avoid Anderson's films. I have disliked all of the ones I've seen. Otherwise I'd go for Daniel Day Lewis. He goes back cobbling full-time after this does he not?

I used to really like him in the beginning, but just the ego mental vibe in general is a turn-off. I walked out of Gangs of New York. I did not want to see There Will Be Blood. Overacting screaming.

I think DDL is as beautiful now as he was in his 20's. The movie looks like a snooze fest but I'll probably see it because of him.

I love PTA as a movie man and I'd love to hang with him and talk cinema, but EYE don't like his movies. They wreak of the lamp, so to speak, terribly worked on and trying to impress themselves.
In addition, DDL is the most overrated actor in history. Without question.
|by Anonymous||reply 13||10/23/2017|
Isn't DDL's character supposed to be gay? You'd never know it from the trailer.
At least this looks better than THE MASTER, and it won't have Joachim Phoenix carrying on like a Method-mad grotesque.

The actress doesn't look interesting (I don't know her). They could have cast César nominee model/actress Marine Vacth instead of her.

Set in the glamour of 1950s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley 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 Woodcock's 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.

Well, this isn't a biopic so the writer is free to change the main character's sexuality. It's a more approachable film that way, though way less interesting.
But yeah, a missed opportunity for DDL to play a gay guy. He'd definitely land his final Oscar that way.
|by Anonymous||reply 37||10/24/2017|
That synopsis doesn't say that DDL is 100% straight. Maybe he's "conflicted" (IE he likes dick but can't come out)

Per the Film Stage, Phantom Thread is set in the glamour of post-war London in the 1950s and will follow renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) who are “at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutantes and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock.” In addition to his admirable fashion sense, Woodcock is a wee bit of a womanizer, whose numerous lovers provide “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.” Will his carefully tailored life unravel when he falls in love? We’ll find out in two months.

...Instead, the actor and Anderson pulled from a handful of top fashion designers. The actor and director name-dropped Cristóbal Balenciaga, Hardy Amies, Norman Hartnell, Michael Sherard, Digby Morton, Edward Molyneux, Victor Stiebel, and John Cavanagh throughout the discussion. According to Day-Lewis, “We splashed around in all their experiences.”

That DDL quote in R58's posting makes me glad DDL is quitting the profession, though he's far from the only actor to indulge in that kind of pretentious navel-gazing.

Funny coincidence: DDL's gonna try to get his 10th Oscar because he must receive an Oscar every time he deigns to pull one of his stunts. The leading lady is Lesley Manville who is the first wife of Gary Oldman who's probably gonna get DDL's 10th Oscar..

Guillermo del Toro @RealGDT
1/ 3 Phantom Thread. What a great title. Reminds me of the "thread that joins us" together speech in Jane Eyre- the Gothic Romance to end them all...
2/3 “I have a strange feeling with regard to you. As if I had a string somewhere under my left ribs, tightly knotted to a similar string in you...
...And if you were to leave I'm afraid that cord of communion would snap. And I have a notion that I'd take to bleeding inwardly. As for you, you'd forget me.” Thst Romsntic thresad, with time, with emotional greed, becomes a nooze.
