Always slow moving, but never without grace, "Phantom Thread" is an elegant period romance about an artist's obsession that's made all the more special by Daniel Day-Lewis' career-punctuating performance.

Weaving the Facets of a Character

One of the greatest living directors, Paul Thomas Anderson, doesn’t disappoint at directing one of the greatest living actors, Daniel Day Lewis, in what is supposed to be his latest performance. Phantom Thread tells the story of Reynolds Woodcock (Day Lewis), a dress maker and fashion designer as he meets and falls in love with Alma (Vicky Krieps), who at first finds him alluring but with time starts growing continously disenchanted with Woodcock’s form of living. The film shows quickly shows its prowess as a thorough character deconstruction and a fascinating period piece into a world which doesn’t get much focus on the cinema landscape.

The first we’ll be looking at is of course the performances, and it goes without saying that Daniel Day Lewis delivers a homerun with this …
