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.

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.

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"

Jean Rollin's La fiancée de Dracula (2002) on blu-ray from Redemption

A Van Helsing-like professor and his protegé are tracking Dracula's descendants through the world of "parallels", creatures who are human in form but live quite distinct psychic lives. A circus dwarf who is in love with one of these creatures leads them to a mansion filled with oddly behaving nuns, The Order of the White Virgins. The nuns are detaining a beautiful woman who is the betrothed of the still-extant Dracula. When she escapes, everyone follows her to Dracula's seaside castle, on the way dealing with a baby-eating ogress and a wolf-woman (Brigitte Lahaie in a cameo), witches and madwomen. The bizarre wedding ritual commences.
