Phantom Thread

Phantom Thread ★★★★

Never been a huge PTA fan (I've seen all his movies and think they're all well made, but never find myself emotionally invested or interested in revisiting them). This is making me reconsider that. Gorgeously textured and immersed in the time period/setting, it's strikingly self-assured and extremely engrossing despite moving very slowly. The turn it takes in the back third was unexpected and disturbing. Also has a pretty snarky sense of humor buried beneath all the formality and poise.
