Phantom Thread

Phantom Thread ★★★★½

I don't want to give a star rating just yet (11/26: disregard), and I definitely don't want to say anything revealing until people get a chance to see it. But wherever you stood in the Great PTA Twitter Battle earlier this week is almost definitely where you'll remain after this gorgeous, slightly unhinged, idiosyncratic-yet-unprecedented entry in his catalog.

Pretty sure it's no secret I'm in the "there's literally no argument - he's the goddamn greatest" camp.

11/27: I can't stop thinking about this movie. It plays heavily with (and against) several elements of both There Will Be Blood and Punch Drunk Love, but mostly feels like it has no predecessor, in PTA's body of work or elsewhere. I can't wait to see it again in a month.
