Phantom Thread

Phantom Thread ★★½

It's so incredibly frustrating to see something with such magnificent potential get deflated by a need to play it safe. This is a stunningly acted, scored and shot film that gets let down by introducing story elements much more interesting than they have any right to be and then shoving them away until the final 10 minutes. To say much more would constitute spoilers but be sure that is PTA's weakest work yet, which still makes it better than most of what's out there. When did Anderson get so delicate?

I'll probably have more to say about this later.
