Mere words can not entirely prepare you for Phantom Thread. How does one even begin to describe the latest cinematic treat from Paul Thomas Anderson? Certainly not by comparing it to previous Anderson films before.
Here is an intricate, sly, deceptive film, and what a glorious film it is. In s London, Reynolds Woodcock Daniel Day-Lewis and his renowned House of Woodcock provide elegant, flowing fashions for the upper crust, royalty included. Woodcock is a meticulous man; a man of routine, who insists on total silence during breakfast or else his entire creative day will be ruined.
As the film begins, Reynolds has clearly grown tired of his significant other, and entrusts his ever-present sister Cyril Lesley Manville with sending the young lady packing.
Their first date does not go as Alma planned: The trailer for Phantom Thread plays a part in this deliberate deception — judging by the footage made available, Phantom Thread looks to be a stuffy, somber costume drama.
Instead, what Anderson has created is a gothic, somewhat perverse romantic comedy; a film with more laugh-out-loud moments than most traditional comedies released this year. Daniel Day-Lewis is set to retire after this film, or so he claims.
If true, it will be a great loss to film, but what a performance to go out on. The relationship between the siblings is unconventional, to say the least, and Manville does so much with so little — one silent, withering glare from her is enough to steal an entire scene.
Anderson directs all of this with painterly precision.
Just as the narrative here is unlike any of his previous films, so too is the very look of the film. The end result is nevertheless stunning — the film is bathed in a dreamy sort of haze, filled with natural light, all the better to show off the cavalcade of dresses Reynolds designs.
Phantom Thread is a niche film for Anderson.
