according to its imdb page, which was nodoubt inputted by the production company, PTA isn't credited as being the cinematographer. i'd go ahead and guess that means a nomination isn't possible.

Most likely the result of Guild-related complexities concerning who can be credited how. If he chose to be credited as a pseudonym, like Soderbergh does for his cinematography, or the Coens for their editing, he could still be nominated (technically the pseudonym would get the nomination). I have no idea how nominations might work if there literally is no cinematographer credit on the film, or even if the ASC would allow it to be uncredited in that way.

i really don't think there's much dispute toward Scorsese being the greatest living filmmaker. it's just kind of funny to say anyone else.

I think Scorsese's films are very often brilliant (Goodfellas can still melt my brain whenever I watch it), so I'll avoid the term "best" and say that PTA is my favorite living filmmaker.  My heart isn't broken if Marty makes a 'dud';  I'm still butthurt over Inherent Vice.

Except Inherent Vice is a masterpiece, so there's that.

I wonder if there will be some Vertigo vibes and there is also the use of the name, Alma.

The table shot makes me think of Barry Lyndon and some shots of EWS - maybe the Christmas decorations/stairs.

This reminded me of Jack White hiding vinyl records in the furniture he made pre-White Stripes.

"Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love."

I wonder if PTA having a relationship with a comedienne will inform this at least a little bit indirectly.
As to 'more reserved socially' versus the opposite.

Vertigo would be interesting, but the trailer seemed to have a call back to another Hitchcock classic when DDL was peering through that door...

I absolutely love the logo design for the title that's used in the trailer, and it actually makes me like "Phantom Thread" a whole lot more. Wish that was used in all the marketing.

Really? I was so disappointed when I saw the type treatment for the titles a few months ago, but assumed it was just a temp treatment PTA used to give Dustin Stanton an idea of the feeling he wanted and would be eventually replaced with more professional type design. The ornamental swashes and odd, uneven lettering feels amateur and the least attractive of all of PTA's type treatments, to me. (That being said, this movie looks absolutely gorgeous. Just from the trailer, it looks like the shots may be more composed in general than the more seat-of-the-pants, improvisational look that much of Inherent Vice and even The Master had. And it looks like it'll transport me to a world I won't want to leave. I'd personally be very happy to hear a 194 minute runtime confirmed.)

I've heard DDL is the lead, but you could argue they are "co-leads". This is from the same source I got the Reynolds Woodcock info.

Spill more details please  :shock: Do you have any word on the runtime of the film  :ponder:

Longer than Sydney and PDL. Most likely shorter than everything else.

I grow more curious by the day as I salivate over these details! So about 120 minutes or so... interesting. Seems like a relatively more intimate, narratively straightforward film compared to the epic mosaics of his last 3.

At least his Oscar for TWBB has been stolen by a great film.

And the light on DDL's eye looks identical to the light on Phoenix in the final shot of Inherent Vice

I want PTA to win Oscars for best director and best screenplay at some point, but I have a feeling this one won't win him those. :(

Fuck the oscars, it's rare when the best film is even nominated. e.g. 2001, The Master

When PTA finally wins his Oscars, it will be Scorsese-style: two decades late and for entirely the wrong movie.

You mean: it will be for co-writing that Pinocchio movie for Downey Jr!

Has there been any reactions to the film thus far? I know someone posted earlier that they talked to someone that said that it was "great and weird." Any early buzz?
