What a way to retire from acting. Daniel Day-Lewis, we salute you Good Sir!
Phantom Thread makes for a welcome return to great filmmaking by Paul Thomas Anderson, whilst also being a fitting send-off for one of the finest actors of the past decade.
Highlighting another example of Anderson’s versatility, the film follows the life of a renowned designer and dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis). We pick up his journey of being an icon in the fashion world, as he begins a romantic relationship with a new flame. She quickly goes from being his muse to his lover and then his full-time partner, and it’s this breadth of changes that make up the entirety of the story. But this isn’t a romantically infused love affair of a film, but rather a complex psychological erotic drama that will be like no relationship you’ve ever seen.
