Phantom Thread

Phantom Thread ★★★★½

“Chic? Oh, don't you start using that filthy little word, Chic! Whoever invented that ought to be spanked in public. I don't... I don't even know what that word means! What is that word? Fucking chic! They should be hung, drawn, and quartered. Fucking chic.”

For some reason, this quote made me think that this would be a great double feature with The Social Network. Obviously I think of the ‘fashion is never finished’ line, but also that they are about rude, obsessive, petty “geniuses” and the people that hitch their wagon to them and are burned for it. The big difference is that Alma sees what is happening and decides to do something about it; she is stronger and more perceptive than Eduardo. 

(Also, they both have great scores from 90s rock stars, so that’s definitely a plus)
