Phantom Thread

Phantom Thread ★★★★½

A

"It's comforting to think the dead are watching over the living. I don't find that spooky at all."

In the invigorating midst of its classic cinematic values and sartorial love pronouncing the art of being as a poignant, yet gracefully chic, technique to linger through, Phantom Thread's virtuously woven narrative adds yet another tantalizing masterpiece of perverse beauty to Paul Thomas Anderson's godlike gallery. From the refined timelessness it consistently perfects, exhilarating romantic tension, and each extraordinary character, it all assists in this being one scrumptious, savory dish. Daniel Day-Lewis can yell at me about "fucking chic" any day of the week.
