Paul Thomas Anderson / Re: Phantom Thread - Interviews
« Last post by greenberryhill on February 16, 2018, 03:54:09 PM »
I think there are many factors that influenced him. Of course he is more mature now. I remember the press days for The Master, he looked kind of tired or bored with some questions and some of the interviewers. But i think he was really tired of explaining that the film wasn´t about Scientology.

For Inherent Vice, he was more relaxed and funny. Maybe as a reflect of the film´s mood? I remember that he even danced during the fisrt seconds of the NYFF press conference. He seemed really happy!

Watch second: 00:45


And now that he is doing the press for Phantom Thread he looks chill and calm, and gentle, maybe he is just in a good mood. Happy for the new joint with DDL.

Finally i suppose the marketing team of every Studio has an influence and Focus is doing a very interesting campaign i think. Maybe they told him to be more interactive with the fans and they came up with the idea of the Q&A for Twiitter or that kind of stuff.

I also wonder if it finally dawned on him (or maybe impressed upon him by the money lenders?) that if this film was going to do better at the box office than the last two (or especially the last one), perhaps he better get out there...? 

I'm convinced this is it.

I don't think he is more enthusiastic about Phantom Thread. Well, maybe he is but that's not what I meant. Sorry, English not being by first language may be the issue here. My wild guess is he puts the Master and/or TWBB above the new one. He named The Master as the one he is most proud of during AMA, right? I just think he seems more enthusiastic towards the idea of talking to other people now about not just his work but also his family etc. Much more engaged in the conversation in a humble, sincere way. I doubt it's forced or faked. I bet the amount of press he does has little influence on the box office, anyway.

As for the kids and getting older, the change still seems sudden to me. It's only 3-5 year difference, he already had kids back then and he's changed from a bit self-important, somehow difficult and confident genius to friendly, humble, almost shy (while still swearing a lot;)) family man who happens to make great movies for a living.

Five years later and he seems so much more friendly, for a lack of a better word. More mature? Mellow? Answering the questions (which are not much different and less repetitive than they were for the Master) not just with more patience but apparently genuine enthusiasm. Talking about personal stuff, children etc. It's not just about his answers and attitude to interviews. Seems like a different person sometimes. More humble also. I know the guy is 47 now but the change is striking to me. Even visually. He has gotten older, hasn't he?


This tour has to be the most press he's ever done in his life for any given film (or combined, as you mention).  He's certainly older. Never had any kids myself, but that has to (hopefully) mature a person?    I also wonder if it finally dawned on him (or maybe impressed upon him by the money lenders?) that if this film was going to do better at the box office than the last two (or especially the last one), perhaps he better get out there...?  Or, as you suggest, maybe he's honestly more enthusiastic about this film.  It certainly deserves it.

The Grapevine / Mrs. Hyde
« Last post by wilder on February 16, 2018, 02:18:26 PM »


Serge Bozon’s eccentric comedic thriller is loosely based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, with many a twist. Mrs. Géquil (Isabelle Huppert), a timid and rather peculiar physics professor, teaches in a suburban technical high school. Apart from her quiet married life with her gentle stay-at-home husband, she is mocked and despised on a daily basis by pretty much everyone around her—headmaster, colleagues, students. During a dark, stormy night, she is struck by lightning and wakes up a decidedly different person, a newly powerful Mrs. Hyde with mysterious energy and uncontrollable powers.

Written and Directed by Serge Bozon
Starring Isabelle Huppert, Romain Duras, Jose Garcia
Shot on 35mm
Release Date - March 28 in France, US release TBD

I'm pretty sure I have seen and read more interviews with Anderson these last few weeks than ever before, combined for all the previous films. Which surely has a lot to do with the fact that he talks a lot about Phantom Thread. I must admit that while he is by far my favorite director I have paid not much attention to the man himself, as a person. Sure, I watched some interviews but if I had to say anything about him even 2-3 years ago I would probably say he is a good talker, a bit self-important maybe, in a way I kind of like or at least understand in artists I respect. And maybe that he doesn't like to do press and generally talk about his work.

Anyway, is it just me or has he changed a lot in recent years? I mean, what was the press conference for the Master when both him and Phoenix didn't even care to pretend they gave a shit? Toronto I guess. I tried to google it now and came across that one: https://vimeo.com/57791230. Haven't seen that before but the annoyed/bored body language in first 30 sec show exactly what I mean. Five years later and he seems so much more friendly, for a lack of a better word. More mature? Mellow? Answering the questions (which are not much different and less repetitive than they were for the Master) not just with more patience but apparently genuine enthusiasm. Talking about personal stuff, children etc. It's not just about his answers and attitude to interviews. Seems like a different person sometimes. More humble also. I know the guy is 47 now but the change is striking to me. Even visually. He has gotten older, hasn't he?

Sorry if I digress to much.

There is some kind of an interview here. It's a Twitter link, I don't know if there is another way to see it.
