Phantom Thread

Phantom Thread ★★★★★

achingly beautiful and supremely dark. maybe the most straightforward PTA movie since Hard Eight as far as story but there is something just beyond the edge of all these scenes... something gothic, something truly menacing behind the beauty that made this hard to watch at points. both leads are absolutely fantastic. it's a shame Vicky Krieps wasn't nominated for an Oscar. Johnny Greenwood's score is maybe his best yet, a perfect blend of lushness and haunting. I'm just glad I finally saw this. I was a hungry boy and PTA cooked me up a classic!!!

the dedication to Jonathan Demme at the very end had me feeling fucked up.
