It's been a week and I still cannot decide how much I liked this

Dafoe is a soulful treasure even if most of his character background was vague, and the cinematography crackles with sizzling bright colors evocative of childhood innocence

My biggest issue is lack of a more apparent structure, as I think the mother's arc was implied so early on in the most straightforward manner, and the film struggles to establish a forward momentum when it needed to advance the more plot-oriented transitions

hopefully trailer within next 2 weeks, I can't wait much longer!

Anyway, those 3hr+ rumors are nothing more than rumors: the film has been locked for a while now, so hopefully we start hearing word about screenings

Love the title. I also love "The Master" as a title, though. Yeah, TWBB and PDL are more bombastic, but I don't think that makes them inherently (heeeheheehee) better.

But he's not Tarantino. He prefers time travel to nostalgia in terms of filmaking. I warmed up to the title; the word phantom is, after all, at the heart of his last movies. Nostalgia lives through the characters. Nostalgia hurts and haunts.

If the actual title card is something like this, I feel the title might be perfect:

Amazon Severs Ties With TWC: Drops David O. Russell Series, Takes Over ‘The Romanoffs’
via Deadline

Amazon Studios has made a decision on the two Weinstein Company series it was “reviewing options” on. The company “no longer plans on moving forward with the David O’Russell Project. As for Matthew Weiner’s  The Romanoffs, Amazon intends to move forward without the involvement of The Weinstein Company,” the company said Friday night.

The pricey untitled David O.Russell series starring Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore and The Romanoffs got caught up in the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal, which engulfed his now-former company, TWC,  including its television division, Weinstein TV.

Following Amazon’s cancellation, the A-list trio involved in the untitled David O. Russell series announced that they are pulling the plug altogether. “We support Amazon’s decision as In light of recent news and out of respect for all those affected we have decided together that it is best to not move forward with this show,” David O. Russell, Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore said in a statement.

Goddammit, I got excited and looked up the font not realising it's a generic font used across the website...It's from the Spectrum font family.

This is going to make the PT vs PT abbreviation infuriating from now on
Maybe, maybe not.  He's always been PTA to me, so it won't be too much of an issue, I think.

I personally love Phantom Thread as a title ... although I agree that The Master as a title sucks. What's so bad about Phantom Thread?

I'm agnostic about it--although in my mind it keeps evoking "Phantom Menace"--in fact, I've even typed that a few times when I meant "...Thread"
