Any NYC Xixaxers not get into any of the screenings? I might have an extra for Monday.

Edit: apologies. Don't have an extra anymore. My wife is gonna come.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Heís still getting these movies made in this day and age and how lucky are we?

Phantom Thread is incredible.

No other human making movies messes with our heads (Iím in the morning after phase!) the way this dude does with these otherworldly environments and weird character traits and insane emotional conflicts he comes up with. I donít even know how to try and sum it up anymore. Itís the PTA world. HOW DOES HE COME UP WITH THIS STUFF?

This will become one of my favorites Iím sure. I donít really rank them but itís Master level but itís its own incredible thing.

I mainly had to chime in from the dead to argue against that idiot celebrity stalking Youtuber crying about Paul dropping pens. After the awesome and hilarious Q & A following yesterdayís 2 PM screening, he graciously hung about with us freaks, insisting we form the meet and greet line into a circle and talked more about his process and posed for pics with us. AND he had a flight to New York to catch!

^ Just a warning, that track is another MIDI version. It's a lot better than the last one, but I had to stop when the strings kicked in.

Oh for sure. Just, personally, listening to the whole thing is not worth the spoilage. I should probably wait for the movie anyway.

Don't know if I dig the title. Should be retitled as "Phantom Beaver".


Is that based on your viewing of the film or conjecture?


Im hoping for beaver as there was blood in "There will be blood".

NY Times on couture and the film.  (Not too spoilery).

In 1939, presumably because the model employed to wear his clothes was inadequate, he wore his own ball gowns for Andrew Goodman of Bergdorf Goodman who, nevertheless, placed an order.

I find these superstitions and traditions to be very exciting,Ē Anderson says of the different couturiers (and their quirks) he researched for the film. ďThey can make for great stories, great fairy tales.Ē And indeed, fairy tales are one of the primary reasons haute couture still exists today ó wedding dresses are the most frequently ordered items in the industry, fit for a make-believe princess (or a real-life one).

Despite the strict embargo placed on the critical response until December 7th, the whispers we've heard following the screenings in Los Angeles and New York indicate something really special has been cooked up with this movie.

I'm pretty sure the "something special" is the film itself. I read his comment as "Even though there is technically an embargo, we've heard the film is great ".

Yeah, I thnk you're probably right.  That makes more sense, too.

Wow! Considering the praise Greenwood's score receives that sounds even more awesome. Any Londoners here?

Tempting to travel from Paris, but it probably means there will be a premiere there a few days later.
I'm so many people.
