There's definitely a trend in Anderson movies where he hides innovation between what can, at first glance, looks old school—and we live in the Snapchat Era, so...

I'm so many people.

The good news is, with the Internet, anyone can review films.

The bad news is, with the Internet, anyone can review films.

That might be the dryest movie review I've ever read.

LOL if PTA was a hack like Tom Hooper, he would have inserted some political/social message/theme in Phantom Thread.

Are you Jeremy Blackman, the guy who played Stanley in Magnolia, or is that just a username you chose? Was going through the cast list and the name sounded familiar.

(If so, he would have been 16 when he first registered on this site.  Certainly possible...  Would he have used his real name?  Also possible...if perhaps a tad unlikely?)

Fuck. I think I deleted my post the same time you quoted it. Yeah it's possible. But I guess it's none of my business who he is IRL so I deleted the question lol.

I'm sad you aren't the real one. I'm also sad that I'm not the real Karl-Jan. :(

Can we all stop pretending Phantom Thread is a masterpiece?

Her name is Jeva.  Fucking millennials!  (heh)  Something, something lack of life experience.  But I've known kids fresh outta college younger than her who grok it.  The polarization is to be expected.  It's almost in vogue to fall in with those who would give it a less than favorable review.  It's not about the fashion, or whether a dress is "beautiful" or not.  That is subjective, but there has to be suspension of disbelief anyway.  Like a dress, this movie is so well made, and I think that's what I take away from all of PTA's work.  The craftsmanship.

Craftsmanship at the very least! If you're a film critic and you can't see (and hear) that PTA's films are impeccably well made, I don't know what to tell you. These people got out of bed to start hating, damn.

Not to make the obvious comparison, but it's like those rare critics who don't like Kubrick or think he peaked with Paths of Glory or whatever. I'm always stunned that they can't see the phenomenal technique and appreciate the movies on that basis alone.

She admits several times that the film poses ideas that are substantive and interesting, but she's frustrated that they aren't tied in a neat Spielbergian bow?

Click on Jeva's byline. She's not even a film critic. Mostly a political reporter. Guess we can't afford film critics anymore.
