Phantom Thread

Phantom Thread ★★

And this is yet another PTA film that I do not like. I cannot deny the level of craft, but at the same time I cannot get past the dullness and lack of motivation in this movie. As in There Will Be Blood, I asked myself several times why do I care about any of this? Is it really that entertaining to other people to see Daniel Day-Lewis acting like a pompous, self-righteous asshole? But oh well, to each their own. I just can't bring myself to like this period-piece romance about making dresses...
