Christopher Nolan:

And Paul’s movie (Phantom Thread), my wife and I made the strange decision to take our kids to go see it and, ever since, every time I do anything vaguely what they would call dictatorial, it’s, “Oh, Mr. Woodcock, are you a spy? Get out your gun. Do you have a gun?” I’ve been hearing that for weeks. And every time Emma cooks mushrooms now, there are huge hysterics. I’ve seen the film a couple of times, and seeing it in 70mm was such a pleasure. The thing I found out about it, as it opened up on its photo-chemical version, is that I was suddenly very aware of how the use of sound in the film is extraordinary. It’s simple and gritty, and then extremely loud, like with the spreading of the butter on the toast. You feel it, up and down your spine. It’s amazing.

Paul has never acted in anything that's ever been released to the public, correct?  I mean, not counting "Magnolia"--which shouldn't really count.   Wonder if he has any acting chops whatsoever?

Paul Thomas Anderson Nearly Starred In ‘Rachel Getting Married’ With Anne Hathaway

“Oh, and the other funny thing about it was later, Jonathan [Demme] was telling me: he said, ‘Yeah, you know, originally we tried some people out for the part, and before you, P.T. Anderson was going to do it but he got caught up in a project he had to do.’ I think the project ended up being something like ‘There Will Be Blood,’ or something [laughs].” Adebimpe said. “We just started talking about him and how much we both liked him and Jonathan was like ‘yeah, that guy knows more about film than I do! I was [working] in the ’70s and I was making some of the movies that he was talking around. I had no idea what was going on around me. He’s like a living library of film.’ It was like a double-edge thing where it’s like, ‘I’m glad I got this role, I don’t know how I feel about that, though.’ I don’t know how I feel about [filling in for] P.T. Anderson.”

Some people have a fear of snakes. That was a somewhat rational fear. And you could do something about it at least. Stay away from long grass and nature documentaries. Easy. Others have a fear of heights. That was manageable too. Avoid tall ladders. But how do you cope when your fear is something you can’t avoid? That you have no hope of staying away from? Being afraid of the sky, where are you going to go?

Wow.  That version is much better.  Now I especially wish we could have seen him in that part.  Or, maybe we were better off with TWBB.

Jennifer Lawrence on Paul Thomas Anderson's Phantom Thread

http://www.indiewire.com/2018/02/jennifer-lawrence-shut-phantom-thread-off-paul-thomas-anderson-1201932932/

“I got through about three minutes of it. I put in a good solid three. I’m sorry to anybody who loved that movie,” Lawrence said. “I couldn’t give that kind of time. It was three minutes and I was just [oof].”

“Is it just about clothes?” she continued. “Is [Reynolds Woodcock] kind of like a narcissistic sociopath and he’s an artist so every girl falls in love him because he makes her feel bad about herself and that’s the love story? I haven’t seen it, so I don’t know. I’ve been down that road, I know what that’s like, I don’t need to watch that movie [laughs].”

I'm 30 minutes into the conversation with Jennifer and Marc.  She hasn't mentioned "Thread" yet, but it's easy to predict she wouldn't be able to sit thru it:  She tried Transendental Meditation, "...for two minutes and said, 'Fuck. This!'"  So, yeah, Jen--Phantom Thread won't be for you...

Sure, especially with screeners.  But she comes off in the interview like she wouldn't have a lot of patience for anything.

what she's saying is human casual and it's people's reactions that are the funny thing. i haven't been following the public personality of Jennifer Lawless

She's a girl whose a high school dropout from Kentucky that got famous from The Hunger Games. Needless to say, Phantom Thread isn't for her. Nor is any PTA film outside of maybe Boogie Nights.

Oh, that's reductive. The thing is she likes PTA. She even said in an interview that he's her favorite director. She talked about Punch Drunk Love with Adam Sandler. Why does she complain about Phantom Thread being "silent", etc...well, maybe she's annoyed that she hasn't worked with him yet, or she's high in pretending she's a "casual" viewer. Remember that she created a whole trend where people thought they were quirky when they talked about how much they liked to eat.

Oh. And I'm pretty sure the first minutes of mother! are mostly silent, but whatever...

Also: Daronofsky is probably Woodckier than Woodcock. PTSD.
