    If Phantom Thread was PTA self-satirically putting his obsession with the monstrous male ego to bed (with a little light poisoning), and this messiness and compassion and warmth is what comes next, then I am going to be fine with that I think

    Arthur (4) noped out when Daniel Stern got hit in the face with the iron and Joe Pesci screamed in horror at his doorknob-branded palm, and to be quite honest, I agreed with him and was proud.

    Remember when you could have stars and costuming and photography and music this luxuriously good in a film this fundamentally silly? When a director could go for outrageous trickshots and straight-face melodrama in the same breath? It’s still great fun, and no-one in it is under any illusions about what it is, but Leo and Gene still find a way to carve out their own, much sadder and scarier film in a few small gaps between their dazzling moustache- and gun-twirling. What legends.
