SYNOPSIS
Set in the glamour of 1950's 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.

Verdict: Daniel Day-Lewis bids farewell to the big screen with a grand performance. Daniel Day-Lewis is undoubtedly one of the finest actors we have ever witnessed. We first saw him in Richard Attenborough`s historical drama, Gandhi (1982), but it wasn`t until 1989 that he won his first Academy Award for My Left Foot. He went on to win two []... ...Read full review
For Daniel Day-Lewis to retire now, with three Best Actor Oscars on his shelf that could possibly be joined by a fourth very soon, is like Marco Pierre White hanging up his apron after earning three Michelin stars, or Michael Jordan hanging up his boots with a record number of NBA titles under his belt. Its an important occasion, and the legendary actor could not have found a stranger film with which to call it a day. ...Read full review
As per Paul Thomas Anderson, a marriage is simply a set of threads woven haphazardly together and the key to a long lasting liaison is finding the right string to pull to make an elegant design. But as per him, a marriage is also about the sticky, poisonous and inelegant filaments that exist between these seemingly elegant seams. Phantom Thread changes in shape and message with every viewing, and as the best film to release this week you would be foolish to miss such an experience in the theater. ...Read full review
At first glance, `Phantom Thread` looks regal in its high society persona captured with exquisite cinematography that represents London in the 1950`s. The period detail is painstakingly precise but besides the fabulous set and costume design, the background score is a character in itself. Jonny Greenwood`s music perfectly compliments the era, geography & emotion of every scene, especially those that have little to no dialogue. ...Read full review
Any film that features what might be the last performance of Daniel Day-Lewis is certainly worth ones time. If that film happens to be written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson he of Boogie Nights, Magnolia, There Will Be Blood and The Master you know youre in for what will likely be an especially rewarding experience. ...Read full review
Phantom Thread is a mysterious movie. It is, at once, hypnotic and unsettling. Days after watching it, I wondered what exactly I had seen is it a perverse love story? Or a darkly, comical portrait of a toxic relationship? Or a heart-breaking story about a young, spirited woman desperately in love with an older, domineering man who loves his work too much to love anyone else? ...Read full review
In Paul Thomas Anderson`s Phantom Thread, the camera floats in straight lines or stays still, either capturing Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) working on one of his flowing gowns or acknowledging the deep admiration or intense resentment he and his latest muse, Alma Elson (Vicky Krieps), have for each other. ...Read full review
