I understand why IV lost money, but I'm surprised The Master did and this isn't looking good.

Man, the vast majority of people I know haven't ever heard of any of these movies. A bunch of my friends who are into movies (more mainstream fare) hadn't heard of Phantom Thread until I mentioned it ("...the guy who did There Will Be Blood.").

These are weird times. Film culture has never been more robust yet its station is diminished. PTA will be fine and the next PTA best-of-a-generation filmmaker will be fine too. I don't know what's gonna happen after that though.

The closest theater playing the film is 48 minutes away from where I reside. It's supposedly coming soon according to my local theater site, though I have little faith there will be a substantially time slot for the film.  It makes me jealous of those who live in the big cities that have showings before the rest of the country can see the picture.


So, my local theater is playing this next week. What's the problem here? The only showing is at 9:20, which means I'll have to get my ass down there as soon as possible. Theater chains really screwed up the momentum by making these ridiculous scheduling sessions.

"But the snipe, the great snipe, the jack snipe, the woodcock in their season, the quail, the curlew?"

that's a line from Bulgakov's The Master & Margarita which alerted to me to the fact a woodcock is not only a bird but a bird served at the finest restaurant in Moscow.



that's a woodcock (with a worm in its beak). i just hadn't realized that and someone might very well have mentioned this already.

on top of that, i had before thought of a "phantom thread" in relation to a "phantom pattern" and therefore thought of it as illusory, but that's true and not true. because you see i went to the Museum of Jurassic Technology and i spent 80% of my time there reading about Athanasius Kircher and magnetism. basically Kircher presented magnetism as a unified theory, which unified theory is what science craves. his exhibit was titled "The World is Bound with Secret Knots". the theory is that the world is composed of synthesis and antithesis and this is all magnetism which relates to, for example, gravity and love.

so i still think of the phantom thread as being composed of love (certainly whether it's a love of self or a love for others has been a hot topic), but i'm able to picture this thread within a larger concept.

The deleted scenes for the BR/Day will last five minutes. I was hoping a twenty minutes short like Back Beyond. It's a nice way to put together footage you didn't use.

The camera tests: eight minutes.

The fake Woodcock show: two minutes.
I'm so many people.

Aside from Criterion, it seems special features have kind of been forgotten about. Possibly a casuality of streaming.

I'm pretty satisfied with the kind of content they're putting on there. As a tech junkie, the camera tests and the photos by Michael Bauman are wonderful. And then as someone who works in the audio industry and as a Certified Radiohead Maniac, I'm very excited for the score demos.

The timing is a bit short ... but ehh, I can't really ask for more, and I'll be glad for quality content over quantity.
